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.

"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!"
"From the van drivers to the snack bar workers, everyone working that day was so friendly and accommodating that they truly set a new standard for customer service. It seemed to me that no request was too big and every effort was made to help ensure a memorable day for the riders, drivers and their guests."
"My husband and Son Michael Green had what they said was one of the best times of their lives. Everyone was so nice and knowledgeable. The staff also made sure that the family members with them had a good time also. It was raining when we arrived and we were sure it would be canceled however they put us in a nice room and waited it out until the track had dried. My husband and son plan to do it again when our son comes home from his deployment. You will be hearing from us again. Thank you so much for all of your support and ease of booking. Beverly Hayes"
