“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dover International Speedway. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation at the conclusion of the program.”
I don’t know about you, but I like to keep my kids busy. Especially on the weekends. We all work hard during the week and deserve to have a little fun on our days off, right? Too many times, though, I find that we end up doing the same things over and over again. Going to the playground, the movies, trampoline parks and museums are fun, but sometimes we want something a little more exciting.
How about going to the AAA 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race at the Dover International Speedway on October 4th? I am.
If your family are thrill seekers, and don’t mind a little noise, the Dover International Speedway will be hosting the AAA 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race this October. Fans and their families will experience thrill and amazement as the world’s best drivers rip around the Monster Mile competing in the first knockout race in the 10-race chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup!
Beyond the race itself, there are plenty of other opportunities for families to grab some food, have some fun and enjoy the festivities! Here are a few of the things that my family plans on checking out while we are there:
- Time: 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
- Free, interactive displays will be set up in the FanZone (located outside of turn 4),
- Featuring games, free sampling, live music and more.

- This family friendly environment is full of fun and popular activities that everyone can enjoy!
