Dover Downs Hotel & Casino welcomes NASCAR to their Dover International Speedway

Dover Downs Hotel & Casino welcomes NASCAR to their Dover International Speedway
When you think of NASCAR, the average person probably doesn’t think of bootlegging whiskey in the hills of Virginia.  But many believe NASCAR found its roots with bootleggers who had to design fast getaway cars.

As the story goes, bootleggers in the Appalachian Mountains supplied the larger cities with their whiskey.  When it came time for a delivery, they knew they needed cars that 1) went fast 2) didn’t look weighed down and 3) looked like all the other cars on the street.  With that, the stock car we now associate with NASCAR was born.

Speaking of NASCAR, Dover International Speedway in Dover, Delaware is hosting the Sprint Cup on May 13. Connected to the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, this unique venue truly has something for everyone, including the racetrack, a casino, a horse racing track, and a beautiful hotel.  They welcome groups for meetings and

events, as the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino is now the largest hotel in the state with 500 guest rooms and suites.
