Dover International Speedway’s annual 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive Set for Wednesday, Sept. 11

DOVER, Del. – Dover International Speedway will again honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks with its annual 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive on Wednesday, Sept. 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Diamond Room in the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino.

The event began in 2006 when the Monster Mile, Dover Downs Hotel & Casino and the Blood Bank of Delmarva started the noble cause. Every interested donor at the blood drive will have the chance to take a pace car ride around the one-mile, concrete oval with Track Historian George Keller. Keller has not missed a single NASCAR race weekend or other motorsports event at the Monster Mile since the track opened in 1969.

The 9/11 Memorial Blood is open to the public. To make an appointment, visit or call 1 888 8-BLOOD-8, and be sure to reference the Dover International Speedway drive. Although appointments are strongly encouraged, walk-in donors are welcome and will be taken if time permits.
