New Hampshire is gearing up for what is expected to be an unprecedented summer tourism season.
Gov. Chris Sununu kicked things off Friday at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“I’ve been saying it for a long time, we’re going to have a phenomenal summer here in New Hampshire,” Sununu said.
It was a typical press conference at the Loudon racetrack, but as the Granite State emerges from the pandemic with the fastest vaccination rate in the country, standing in “Victory Lane” took on a whole new meaning.
“It’s pretty symbolic to be kicking off the summer doing 125, 135 miles per hour down a straightaway,” Sununu said.
And so, that’s exactly what he did — going full throttle into summer 2021 from behind the wheel of a Lamborghini.
“Everyone, not just from across Northeast, but across America, will be flooding into New Hampshire enjoying not just the race, but our lakes, and our rivers, and mountains and all of our tourist attractions,” Sununu said.
