Matt Kenseth, Ryan Newman to appear in Monster Mile Club before Sept. 30 “AAA 400″

DOVER, Del. – NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Matt Kenseth and Ryan Newman will make appearances in the Monster Mile Club the morning of the Sept. 30, 2012 “AAA 400″ NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway, race No. 3 in the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

Fans in the Monster Mile Club will be treated to question-and-answer sessions with both drivers during their respective visits.

The Monster Mile Club ticket add-on is a hospitality option for fans the morning of the “AAA 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. On top of the Newman appearance, it also includes a Trackside Access pass to the frontstretch of the track prior to the race, unlimited food and beverages (Pepsi and Anheuser Busch products), a race program and a souvenir gift. Ticket holders can add this hospitality option to their tickets for just $99.

Kenseth, a two-time victor at Dover, including in the 2011 spring race at the Monster Mile, and this year’s “Daytona 500” winner, has been atop the standings for the bulk of the season and is a near-lock to make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. As the Sept. 30 “AAA 400” serves as race No. 3 in the 10-race Chase, fans will get to hear about Kenseth’s strategy, his expectations for the Chase and that day’s race, and how he plans on making a run for his second career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship.

Newman has had a lot of success in his career at the Monster Mile, winning three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races (two in 2003 and one in 2004), claiming four poles, and racking up six top-five and 11 top-10 finishes, all in 21 starts. The win in 2004 was in the first-ever Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway, making Newman the first driver to ever win the now-famous Monster trophy. In addition, Newman has one NASCAR Nationwide Series win at Dover in the fall 2005 race.

The Monster Mile Club opens at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30 with a continental breakfast. Trackside Access begins at 8:30 a.m. with the hosted question-and-answer session with Newman following later in the morning. An all-you-can-eat lunch will be served from 11 a.m. until the start of the “AAA 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at 2 p.m., at which point the Monster Mile Club will close.

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.
