Back when the sport was doing REALLY well, most of the drivers flew in their own jets. The jets were smaller, so they flew into Concord.
To save on costs, the teams now "carpool" in larger jets. Concord's runway isn't long enough to support the larger jets, so now they go to LCI for the most part. There are still drivers and owners that fly into CON, just not as many as there used to be.

The jets you have seen in the past few weeks have been teams doing some testing up at NHMS.
