#NHMS25 Anniversary Throwback Thursday Feature
|Chad Little and his team celebrates in victory lane in 1995.|
On May 13, 1995, Chad Little won the New England Chevy Dealers 250 in the NASCAR Busch Grand National Series (now known as the NASCAR XFINITY Series) at NHMS. He started ninth and found his way to the front on Lap 167, after which he led 78 of the final 84 laps.
It was Little's third win of the 1995 season, by far his most successful in NASCAR. He collected all six of his NASCAR National Series wins that season and finished second in points to Johnny Benson, Jr. He raced again in the series full-time in 1996 before moving up to the Cup Series in 1997.
Also in 1997, Little's wife gave birth to their son Jesse, who would follow his dad into racing. The family's tie to NHMS grew much stronger on July 11, 2014, when Jesse started second in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race and kept himself near the front for much of the afternoon.
