Although some teams do go to Concord, many of the NASCAR team aircraft fly into Laconia. There will be numerous jets and some of the teams do stay at local motels. One team, pilots included, takes a substantial number of rooms at the NASWA every time there is a race at NHIS. There is another team who have stayed at Channel Cottages for many years.

The car rental companies (primarily Enterprise) deliver over 50 cars to Laconia Airport before each race for the use of the race teams.
