Dover International Speedway announces races dates for 2013

NASCAR returns to the Monster Mile on May 31-June 2 and Sept. 27-29 in 2013

DOVER, Del. – Dover International Speedway officials today announced its 2013 NASCAR race dates. Two tripleheaders of racing action will return to the Monster Mile on May 31-June 2, and Sept. 27-29, 2013.

New next season, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying will return to its traditional Friday afternoon time on the schedule as it precedes that afternoon’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in the spring and NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race in the fall.

Both race weekends will again feature three days of action, including the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in the spring; and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in the fall.

In addition, the Monster Mile’s three-tier pricing program will return, rewarding fans with the lowest prices from the track and encouraging fans to buy early and save. For a complete 2013 price chart, click here.

“In a trend that’s seen us revert back to some old traditions at the Monster Mile in recent years, we’re happy to continue with our traditional race dates while returning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying to Friday,” said Denis McGlynn, president and CEO of Dover Motorsports, Inc. “We’re also continuing new traditions as we’ll again offer low priced ticket options to fans in 2013 with the return of our three-tier pricing program. Essentially, the earlier a fan purchases their tickets, the more money they can save.”

The Monster Mile will again offer $10 junior tickets on Sundays for ages 14 and younger, which features seating in all four turns in 2013. That includes seven alcohol- and tobacco-free sections. For Friday and Saturday races, junior tickets are just $8 in all available seating sections.

Also returning in 2013 is the “Design-it-Yourself” payment plan. Customers can spread out their payments by placing a 25 percent deposit on their tickets before the Preferred Pricing period expires. They then can pay off their account on their own schedule, paying what they want when they want. The payments can be scheduled at using the “Ticket Account Manager” or by calling the ticket office at 800-441-RACE.

Tickets for the May 31-June 2, 2013 race weekend are currently on sale. Fans can begin placing deposits on tickets for the Sept. 27-29, 2013 race weekend during Dover’s Sept. 28-30, 2012 race weekend. Returning fans have the opportunity to renew their same seats for the 2013 race weekends. For tickets or to place a deposit, call 800-441-RACE.

But before 2013 arrives, NASCAR returns to the Monster Mile on Sept. 28-30, 2012 with the Sept. 30 “AAA 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the Sept. 29 “OneMain Financial 200” NASCAR Nationwide Series race and the Sept. 28 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race.
