About Dover Motorsports, Inc.

On a lazy Fall afternoon in 1985, 22,000 people watched as Harry Gant, driving the Mach 1 Chevrolet, won NASCAR’s Delaware 500 at Dover International Speedway.

On that same afternoon, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart were teenagers. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was only 11. And 2004 rookie-of-the-year Kasey Kahne was just five years old, and starting kindergarten.

My, how things have changed!

Those old 1985 grandstands have been replaced by modern steel-and-concrete edifice, seating more than 140,000 race fans, hailing from New England all the way to the Carolinas. Twice a year, they pack the stands for NASCAR tripleheader weekends featuring the Craftsman Truck Series, Busch Series, and…Gordon, Stewart, Earnhardt Jr. and Kahne going fender to fender in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup series!

Not coincidentally, those race fans come to Dover twice a year and contribute more than $94 million annually to the State of Delaware economy.

Such unprecedented growth has typified Dover Motorsports Inc. (NYSE: DVD), one of the nation’s premier motorsports companies. Annually, the company’s facilities host more than 300 races each year, reaching more than 100 million race fans in 29 of the top U.S. markets.

In California, the Dover Motorsports-owned Grand Prix Association of Long Beach has, for 31 years, staged the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, the nation’s most popular street race, featuring the lightning-quick Champ Car World Series.

Nashville, Tennessee is home to Nashville Superspeedway, a 1.33-mile concrete tri-oval that opened in 2001 and yearly hosts the Indy Racing League, NASCAR Craftsman Trucks and two NASCAR Busch Series races. Fully lighted and capable of expanding to more than 150,000 seats, Nashville Superspeedway is poised for a possible future NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Race.

The City of Memphis boasts Memphis Motorsports Park, one of the nation’s most versatile motorsports facilities. A ¾-mile, paved tri-oval and drag racing facility with modern grandstands and luxurious skybox suites, “The Park” annually hosts NASCAR’s Busch and Craftsman Truck Series, as well as the popular NHRA O’Reilly Mid-South Nationals.

And, in the shadow of the famous St. Louis Arch, Gateway International Raceway offers Midwestern race fans a menu of NASCAR’s Busch and Craftsman Truck Series, as well as the NHRA Sears Craftsman Nationals, in a complex that includes a lighted, 1.25-mile oval and a championship drag racing facility.

It’s all part of a Dover Motorsports, Inc. goal that is just as true today as it was in 1985: to provide motorsports fans across the United States with the best in racing at first-class, fan-friendly facilities.
