Are you a thrill seeker? Love to get your adrenaline pumping? Tired of the same ol thing weekend after weekend? Looking for something to do the weekend of October 3rd?
I have a great suggestion that will please the whole family. Why don't you check out the AAA 400 NASCAR event in Dover, Delaware?! It's a nice little weekend getaway packed with tons of thrill seeking events and plenty of fun for the entire family, kids included.
Our family had been a huge NASCAR family since the days of Dale Earnhardt and before. We have attended the Daytona 500 many years ago, but have never been to Dover International Speedway. This year we're rooting for Jimmy Johnson!
While checking out the website to see just what they have to offer for families, I was so amazed at all of the fun they have planned.
From 8am -2:30pm they have Fan Zone which features games, free sampling, live music and so much more. There will be a ton of partners there such as 5-hour energy, AAA,M&T Bank, Lucas Oil, ACME, Camping World, Comcast XFINITY, the NASCAR Foundation, the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience, Toyota, USO Military Village and more!
