DOVER, Del. (AP) – Dover International Speedway is offering the opportunity to travel its ‘Monster Mile’ to people who get their COVID-19 vaccine at the racetrack later this month.
Up to 800 drivers and their passengers will be able to do two laps of the track in their own vehicles behind a pace car, according to a press release. The events will take place on October 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on October 17 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be offered. Participants will be able to get their first, second or booster. Free COVID-19 tests will also be available and people will be able to get vaccinated at events without driving on the track.
The first 250 people to register for vaccinations will receive two tickets to the NASCAR Xfinity Series race to be held on the speedway on April 30, 2022.
Registrations were scheduled to open Wednesday at noon on racetoendcovid.org. Appointments are encouraged, but walk-in visits for vaccinations without driving on the track and for testing will be accepted. Driving on the track without registering will only be available if the slots are not filled in advance.
Drivers traveling alone on the track must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license, a registration card in their name and vehicle insurance. Those who are 16 and 17 years old must have a license and a parent or guardian in the vehicle to sign a release form.
