History

Dover International Speedway, nicknamed “The Monster Mile,” in Dover, Delaware opened in 1969. The 95,500-seat racetrack is a 1 mile oval with 24-degree banked turns and 9-degree banked straightaways. The Speedway is home to the NASCAR AAA 400 Drive for Autism and the Citizen Soldier 400.

From 2007 to 2008, the Dover International Speedway underwent a large-scale renovation called “ The Monster Makeover.” The first phase of “The Monster Makeover” built 12 new skyboxes and added 2,100 square feet to the infield media center. The second phase added “The Monster Monument” to the Victory Lane Plaza and expanded the FanZone area.

In addition to hosting NASCAR races, the Dover International Speedway was also the site of IndyCar races and USAC races in the past.
