Kindness Rocks at the Monster Mile

One message at just the right time can change a person’s entire day, outlook and even life!

Grab a rock at Monster Mile Youth Nation during our Sept. 29-Oct. 1 NASCAR tripleheader weekend!

The Monster Mile is excited to participate in the latest movement sweeping the nation to spread kindness, inspiration and joy with decorated rocks. Groups like DE FS ROCKS- Delaware Rocks the First State on Facebook have been growing in popularity over the last few months to promote creativity and fun for both children  and adults by painting and hiding rocks. Participation in the movement is simple: find one, keep one, hide one, make one.

There will be a craft station set up in the Monster Mile Youth Nation Headquarters display (open Saturday and Sunday) for fans to decorate their own rocks to hide around the property.

The Speedway will also hide several pre-decorated rocks ahead of race weekend, including a select few that will correspond to prizes. (Think scavenger hunt!) If you find one of these MILEStones, take it to the Monster Mile Youth Nation Headquarters booth to claim your prize. Five lucky winners will receive prizes like T-shirts, autographed items from Kyle Larson, Jamie McMurray and Kevin Harvick, and even a chance to sit in the Monster Bridge during the race!

The MILESstone prize rocks are hidden around Dover International Speedway. If you find one of these rocks, take it to the Monster Mile Youth Nation Headquarters booth to claim your prize.

Whether you’re visiting the craft station in Monster Mile Youth Nation or painting your own rocks ahead of time, just follow these easy steps to get started:

  • Step 1: Pick a Rock
  • Step 2: Decorate one side with an image, animal, quote… whatever you want!
  • Step 3 (VERY IMPORTANT): On the back, write #MonsterMileRocks Keep or Hide
  • Step 4: Finish with a coat of Mod Podge and let it dry.
  • Step 5: Hide it!*

Throughout the weekend, you can follow along on social media with the hashtag #MonsterMileRocks, and don’t forget to post photos when you find or decorate a rock!

*NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT HIDE OR EXCHANGE ROCKS INSIDE THE GATES/GRANDSTANDS, IN THE INFIELD OR ON THE TRACK.
