New online series will introduce improvements and provide fans with advice about navigating the Monster Mile
DOVER, Del. – For first-time fans, a trip to Dover International Speedway can be sensory overload. The full-throttle experience of a race weekend at the Monster Mile can be as intense as the racing on the track. There’s so much to see and do from the time fans set foot on the property that they don’t always get to take advantage of everything that the venue has to offer.
“Dover Insider Tips,” a new series on DoverSpeedway.com, will give race fans insider access to new developments at the track, and advice on everything from purchasing tickets, parking, and who to contact at the track if they encounter a problem on race weekend. The idea for the series stems from two fan council meetings in 2010 where two groups of Dover fans met at the track to candidly discuss their experience with Speedway officials. The groups requested more year-round information about the track and more in-depth information about existing programs at the Speedway for fans.
The first installment of “Dover Insider Tips” takes a look at the new seating options available for general admission ticket holders for NASCAR Nationwide Series races in 2011. The track received feedback following the 2010 season of cramped general admission seating options, and has since designated 13 additional sections in Turn 1 and Turn 4 for general admission seating.
The story on DoverSpeedway.com explains the variety of seating options now available for Saturday NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Dover in 2011, and details the logic behind expanding the sections in response to requests from fans.
Fans can log on to DoverSpeedway.com every Thursday to read about a new topic, view corresponding photos and video, and post comments about the subject on Dover’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/DoverInternationalSpeedway.
Tickets are now on sale for NASCAR’s return to the Monster Mile on May 13-15 and Sept. 30-Oct. 2, 2011. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 1-800-441-RACE or visit DoverSpeedway.com.
