Dover International Speedway has announced its all-new Reward Our Troops program, a ticket donation initiative that provides individual ticket purchasers or businesses the opportunity to make a contribution toward sending an active member of the military, a veteran or family members of fallen heroes to a Sunday NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the Monster Mile.
Partnering with the Veteran Tickets Foundation, the speedway will offer each person who purchases tickets to a Sunday race at the Monster Mile the chance to make a monetary donation of their choosing that will go toward a ticket in the Reward Our Troops Program. The Veteran Tickets Foundation will distribute tickets through www.VetTix.org, free of charge, to the brave men and women that make up the U.S. military, and their families.
“We’re proud to work with race fans to give back to our active military, veterans and the families of those that made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Mike Tatoian, executive vice president and COO of Dover Motorsports Inc. “Giving these service men and women, along with their families, a fun day at the track is just one small way we can show our appreciation for all they’ve done for us.”
In addition to individual ticket buyers, businesses will also have the opportunity to participate in three tiers - donating 10 tickets for $400, 25 tickets for $1,000 or 65 tickets for $2,600.
Anyone who makes a donation will be eligible for a tax write-off, and will receive thank you notes from the military and photos from the event. Individuals and companies that donate will be recognized on VetTix.org andDoverSpeedway.com.
NASCAR returns to Dover International Speedway Sept. 26-28 for the Sept. 28 AAA 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the Sept. 27 NASCAR Nationwide Series race and the Sept. 26 Drive Sober 150 presented by the Delaware Office of Highway Safety NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race.
