This website is an online resource for NASCAR enthusiasts: welcome to our info page for Dover International Speedway in Dover, Delaware.
Dover International Speedway has an impressive Cup racing history. From 1969 to 1980, 21 of the 22 Cup races held there were won by drivers who either already had or would go on to win championships in NASCAR’s top series. About 3,200 seats were added to the facility in 1982. Each following year until 1998, more seats were added.
In 1995, DIS’s surface was switched to concrete, making it the first all-concrete superspeedway.
Dover hosted the first Cup race held after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States in 2001. Dale Earnhardt Jr. got the win that day and took a giant American flag on a victory lap.

Disabled RV Parking Requirements

- To insure that our guests with disabilities receive the opportunity to park in our RV accessible/handicap parking area (RV Lot 6 & RV Lot 7), we have enlisted assistance from law enforcement to monitor and enforce proper use of state-issued disabled parking permits at our upcoming race weekend.
- Delaware law requires that the person to whom the disabled plate or hang tag was issued must be the driver, or passenger in, the vehicle bearing the plate or hang tag at the time the vehicle is parked in restricted areas (i.e. RV Lots 6 & RV Lot 7). See Section 2134 of Chapter 21 of the Delaware Code.
- Before loading into RV Lot 6, patrons will be required to show their state-issued disabled parking photo identification card to verify ownership of their state-issued plate or hang tag. When purchasing a spot in RV Lot 7, patrons will be required to send a copy of their state-issued disabled parking photo identification card and state-issued hang tag or registration for state issued plate. For patrons in Delaware and other states who are not issued a disabled parking photo identification card, the police will verify the state-issued plate or hang tag number and request photo identification (such as a driver’s license) to match the name on the plate or hang tag.
- Follow-up checks will be conducted throughout the event weekend to assure that spaces are being used properly. They thank you in advance for your cooperation.
