  • At the Track : While on the grounds of Dover International Speedway, the FanZone is a must-do with live entertainment, delicious local cuisine, and craft beverages. You may even get the opportunity to meet your favorite driver!
  • For the Kids : There’s nothing like the excitement of bringing a new fan for their first NASCAR race! Be sure to pack a set of headphones in case they need to tune out the loud buzzes of the engines. During race weekend head down to the Monster Mile Youth Nation area for the kiddos to learn more about racing, participate in games, and enjoy driver appearances and autograph sessions.
  • More Fun : For those willing to venture away from the Speedway, central Delaware has plenty to make the most out of your visit. Try your luck at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, explore the world of aviation at the Air Mobility Command Museum or experience the great outdoors at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. 
  • Fuel Up  : There are plenty of nearby places to dine after an exciting day spent at the races. At Sambo's Tavern you will find autographed photos hung on the wall and will sit at a table your favorite NASCAR driver may have once sat at. For a family friendly meal enjoy the colorful menu at The Sugar Factory and talk about the day's adventures over a giant sundae.
