DOVER, Del. (May 10, 2016) – More than 40 drivers from across NASCAR’s three premier national touring series will be showing their support for Autism Delaware’s mission during the upcoming May 13-15 weekend at Dover International Speedway by displaying a special decal on their cars and trucks.
Autism Delaware, a leader in the First State on autism awareness since its founding in 1998, is working with AAA Mid-Atlantic to raise funds and awareness during the May 15 “AAA 400 Drive for Autism” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the Monster Mile (1 p.m., Fox Sports 1).
This will be the 10th consecutive year that Dover International Speedway’s spring NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race has had a tie-in with the cause of autism awareness.
Earlier this year, in support of Autism Awareness Month in April, the Monster Monument at Victory Plaza presented by Smithfield and Dover Downs Hotel & Casino were illuminated in blue light during the evening and night hours.
The Monster Mile will also host Autism Awareness Day at the Races in its enclosed grandstand for the fifth straight year on Sunday, May 15. The event provides a sensory-friendly environment for children and families on the autism spectrum to enjoy the race.
The May 13-15 NASCAR tripleheader weekend also includes a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday, May 13 and the “Ollie’s Bargain Outlet 200” NASCAR XFINITY Series Dash 4 Cash race on Saturday, May 14.
In total, 21 drivers from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, 13 drivers from the NASCAR XFINITY Series and 13 drivers from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will display the Autism Delaware decal on their respective cars and trucks. They include:
