Shopping. New Hampshire has no sales tax!

This may help to explain why Exit 20 of I-89 has become a major center for retailing. Today, more than 250 retail stores, restaurants, supermarkets, and other businesses are concentrated here. The Powerhouse Mall, which features more than 30 boutique-type shops and other businesses, the Upper Valley Plaza, the West Lebanon Plaza, the Colonial Plaza and the newly refurbished Glen Road Plaza, make our area one of the largest and busiest shopping areas in Northern New England.

Valve Cover Racing

This is an event where everyone has a fun time. Get a valve cover, four wheels, and with a little ingenuity join in the fun. A feature of the racing event is the double elimination scoring. When a car loses a race, that car later races another car that also lost a race. The car that loses a race the second time is then eliminated from completion. This method allows the owner of a race car that lost the first race, time to go to the pit area and make adjustments to service his car and try again. It also gives the owner of a “slower” car the opportunity to run in at least two competitive races on the track. We also have beauty contest for those who are not "competitive" on the track.
If you want to participate with your valve cover, you'll need a number. Some of our members already have numbers but if you don't, go to this page and fill out our easy form to obtain your racing number.
