Dover International Speedway and Dover Downs Hotel & Casino employees show support for Philadelphia Eagles

Almost 50 employees from Dover International Speedway and Dover Downs Hotel & Casino gathered on Wednesday to celebrate the Philadelphia Eagles’ trip to the NFL championship game with a series of cheers and songs.

The employees, many dressed in Eagles gear, met in front of the Monster Monument in Victory Plaza presented by Smithfield, sang “Fly Eagles Fly,” the Eagles fight song, and held signs and flags in support of the NFC champions. In addition, the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Company from Greenwood, Delaware, brought a green 500-gallon fire engine and displayed a large American flag in front of the Monster Monument.

Also this week, the Monster Monument is lit in green light during the evening hours.

The Eagles will play the AFC champion New England Patriots on Sunday in Minneapolis for the NFL title.
