The car rental companies (primarily Enterprise) deliver over 50 cars to Laconia Airport before each race for the use of the race teams.
Agree, about 25 years ago my friends parents owned a motel ( now Ellacoya Motel on Scenic Dr ) and Kyle Petty's team would stay there year after year. They looked forward to the lake front rooms while here. Very cool people.
