Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was no consensus to move the page, per the discussion below. As the NHIS website states and as is mentioned below, the name has not yet been changed. Dekimasuよ! 01:33, 14 November 2007 (UTC)


I am proposing this move becasue of the annoucement to rename the track after Bruton Smith Purchased the track. The soruce for the name changes are here at http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=99758&p=irol-newsArticle&t=Regular&id=1071914& and http://www.jayski.com/pages/tracks/nhis.htm. I am holding off on this right now becasue I don't know if the name change is active or not yet. The discussion is to rather go ahead and make the change or hold off until the begining of next year.

Seems noone willing to comment on this so I would guess it is considered uncontested. Anyway they keep changing the names back to NHMS. Sawblade05 (talk to me | my wiki life) 05:18, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
I'd wait on the move until the acquisition is complete and it's actually been renamed. So far that hasn't happened. No need to rush. Gateman1997 07:11, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:NHISlogo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:NHISlogo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Name change[edit]

The name has been changed to New Hampshire International Speedway, not New Hampshire Motor Speedway. See [1] and [2]. Not sure how to go about changing the whole thing, because New Hampshire International Speedway redirects to this page. TimBilly1224 (talk) 01:11, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

The track is now called the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Bruton Smith bought the track and changed the name New Hampshire International Speedway to New Hampshire Motor Speedway. CEfanDP99 (talk) 01:28, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
