“Great place if you LOVE Nascar!”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Never went to a live Nascar race, and wanted to see all the hubbub, WOW!! What energy! So loud, and walking by the fence while the cars pass is just amazing!!

Staying nearby during season is very expensive. Christian Mall offers an inexpensiive shuttle service to and from, which drops you off closeby.

“Dover International Speedway - Deleware”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Nascar races are fun. This track doesn't have covered seating. If you go, you may want to take a stadium seat or cushion to sit on. The seating chart on the website doesn't match the actual seating. Our seats were up high in the stands and next to a fence that looked down to the ground. Every time the race cars went by the seats, you could feel the seats shake. After about 30 minutes of watching the race, my party found some empty seats that were not so close to the edge and didn't shake.

“SO close to the action my ears were ringing for days!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We went to the race on the spur of the moment. Since this was our 1st NASCAR race, did not know that it would be a GOOD IDEA to bring earplugs or ear mufflers. Saw many people with "headsets" on them, and thought they were just over enthusiastic fans, not wanting to miss a moment of the announcers repertoire! Discovered later that the headsets were to keep the sounds OUT! Our seats were in the Petty Grandstands and the cars roared by as they came out of the steep banked turn. The cars literally went ZOOM, ZOOM as the flew by. After an hour or two - my ears were ringing, and kept ringing well into the ride home and the rest of the night (all good by the morning, tho!). Those seats are also right along Pit row, and it was fascinating to see the pit crews in action. Will definitely be back for the spring race, this time with some fashionable headgear on!
