The Autism Speaks 400 is the first of two NASCAR Sprint Cup stock
car races held at Dover International Speedway in Dover,
Delaware. It is usually held in early June. The other sprint
Cup series race held at the Monster Mile is the Dover AAA 400 held later in the year in September.
Dover International Raceway
Dover Raceway is unique in that itís exactly one mile, meaning itís not a short track or a superspeedway. Itís also made of concrete, rather than asphalt, making it even more challenging.
This racetrack represents the
very best and traditional in the motorsports betting action. Not
only is Dover International Speedway's "Monster Mile" a
challenge all its own, but one of the all-round toughest tracks
in the world will bring you this year's Nextel Cup and Busch
Series. It is very high-banked, concrete and doesn't have
room for error. Now named the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR
Nationwide Series, and the new towering fiberglass "Monster"
Forget the white cliffs of Dover, try the concrete tracks of Dover International Speedway for either the Autism Speaks 400 or itís fall counterpart, the Dover 400. Just like Lowes Motor Speedway before it, and Pocono Raceway following, there is twice the excitement to enjoy in Dover. And while many NASCAR tracks are cushy asphalt, Dover International Speedway is rock hard concrete, a brutal test of machinery on the car and a demanding trial to the driver. But if you canít take the pounding you wonít make the finish line at Dover International Speedway.
The Monster Mile has a bridge which over looks the race track and special seating for major sponsors. These seats are special not only because of the great view but the winner of the race is required to sign the seat that corresponds to the number of the race car.
Dover International Speedway is owned by Dover Motorsports, Inc. (NYSE: DVD), a leading promoter of motorsports events in the United States. DVD subsidiaries operate four tracks in three states, and present more than 400 motorsports events each year. This includes 14 major, national events which include races sanctioned by NASCAR.
