What is the track like?
Dover International Speedway, nicknamed the "Monster Mile," is a 1 mile (1.6 km) race track located in Dover, Delaware. Dover is unique in many ways. It is exactly one mile long; technically this means that it is neither a superspeedway nor a short track. The speedway surface is concrete; most NASCAR track surfaces are asphalt. Dover is one of three concrete ovals used in NASCAR's three major series.
Distance: 1 mile, Shape: Oval, Banking: 24 degree turns, 9 degree straights

"From the minute we arrived at the race track, your personnel were friendly, funny (razzing us about our driver choices!), well spoken and treated us with the utmost respect and kindness. The van ride around the track was fantastic, and a great treat for the spectators! My father had a terrific time during the Ride Along and said it was just awesome!"
"This past weekend I participated in the Ride Along program at Dover Downs. I only have one word to describe the experience - AWESOME! I have been coming to the races at Dover Downs since 1978 and to be able to ride in a racecar around the track was a dream come true. My sister had given me the ride as a gift last Christmas and it exceeded even my wildest expectations. What made this experience even more enjoyable was being able to have my sister right there with me in the pits. The ability for family to be part of the action is so cool."
" With rain moving in we thought that the event may be cancelled but they got the program moving along and we had a great experience. My wife enjoyed the tour of the facility as she had never been to Dover raceway."
