Dover International Speedway


February 25, 2015 - 1:06pm

Dover International Speedway has been a staple on the NASCAR schedule since Richard Petty won the inaugural “Mason-Dixon 300” on July 6, 1969. The high-banked, one-mile concrete oval in Dover, Delaware, is consistently one of the most challenging tracks on the circuit, leading to its well-earned nickname, the “Monster Mile.”

• Hosted 16 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races since 1998.
• 24 degrees of banking in the turns and 9 degrees on the straightaways.
• Track was asphalt from 1969-1994. Switch to concrete made in fall of 1994.
• Hosted 94 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races since 1969. Jimmie Johnson is all-time leader in Dover victories with 10, followed by Richard Petty and Bobby Allison with seven wins apiece.
• An annual host of two NASCAR XFINITY Series races and one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. Also hosted IndyCar races in 1998 and 1999.
