NASCAR fans begin flocking to central Delaware

The AAA 400 is not until Sunday at Dover International Speedway, but excitement is already building for NASCAR’s second visit of the year to The Monster Mile.

Some of the most loyal fans are already making their way to Dover and are starting to fill local motels and hotels or staying in their RV’s.  Races are also being held Friday and Saturday leading up to Sunday’s Sprint Cup race.  The Delaware Department of Transportation is coordinating with local and state police to make it as convenient as possible for fans coming to and leaving any of the race activities.  Race Express service will also be in operation for fans willing to park at Christiana Mall and take a shuttle bus Sunday.  The cost is $12, and the service begins Sunday at 8:00 a.m. You can get the latest traffic advisories at www.deldot.gov.
