LOUDON, N.H. — There is something about making a debut at your home track that feels different. That will ring true this Sunday for Front Row Motorsports driver Anthony Alfredo.
Alfredo, a native of Ridgefield, Connecticut will make his New Hampshire Motor Speedway debut in his No. 38 DUDE Wipes Ford Mustang.
The NCS doesn’t race in Connecticutt, so the one-mile track nicknamed The Magic Mile is the closest the series comes to racing in Alfredo’s home state. Therefore, it will be a special homecoming of sorts for Alfredo who will have both family and friends in attendance this weekend.
“I’ll have a lot of family and friends with me in the garage and pits,” said Alfredo in a team press release. “It’s going to be a full weekend, but I’m looking forward to it. I love racing for my family, friends and coming to New Hampshire. We don’t race in Connecticut, so it’s our closest track.”
DUDE Products are leader in the wipes game and sold throughout the country. DUDE Wipes full line includes a head-to-toe assortment of energizing face and body wipes.
“It’s awesome to have DUDE Wipes back on the car this weekend,” said Alfredo. “They have supported me the past few seasons and they’ve been great to work with. We’ve had some close calls this season and a few situations where I’m glad we have had DUDE Wipes supporting us.”
It may be the first time Alfredo sees NHMS in a Cup car [but] it’s not the first time he’s raced there. In 2018, he raced at Loudon twice in the NASCAR K&N East Series. He went on to finish third and sixth, respectively.
Alfredo in his first full season in the NASCAR Cup Series is still seeking his first career win. In 21 starts, he has one top-15, three top-20 and eight top-25 finishes. His best career finish to date is a 12th place result at Talladega in April.
As the series heads to New Hampshire, Alfredo is coming off of a 26th place finish in last weekend’s Quaker State 400 from Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Sunday’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 from NHMS can be seen July 18 at 3:00 PM ET on NBCSN.
