Dover International Speedway will host an event for families of children on the autism spectrum June 4, during the AAA 400 Drive for Autism Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.
The event, in its sixth consecutive year, is a joint effort between Dover International Speedway and Autism Delaware, supported by AAA Mid-Atlantic and Ollie’s Bargain Outlet.
The Autism Awareness Day at the Races ticket package will include seating in the enclosed grandstands at the Monster Mile. In five years, more than 3,000 people have participated in the program.
Other highlights include pre-race appearances by Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers and personalities, information booths, a lunch buffet, non-alcoholic beverages and more. Drivers will be announced closer to event day.
A reserved area near the grandstand seats will provide a quiet zone with muted lighting and sound, allowing attendees to take a break from the race and crowds when necessary. The room includes comfortable seating, games and video screens to help fans keep up with the race or watch family friendly movies. Autism Delaware’s service professionals will be on hand to assist families as needed.
Tickets are $95 for adults and $25 for ages 12 and younger.
