Dover Motor Speedway’s latest Laps For Charity event is set for Saturday, Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., where fans can drive multiple circuits around the high-banked, one-mile oval that has tested America’s best drivers every year since 1969.

Two driving packages are available for Laps For Charity participants:

  • REGULAR SESSION: For $50 per vehicle, participants will take five laps around the track behind a Dover track vehicle.
  • SOLD OUT!! VIP SESSION: For $100 per vehicle, participants can take eight laps around the track individually behind a Dover track vehicle.

Participants should pre-register their vehicles at www.speedwaycharities.org/events/dover/laps-for-charity/registration/.
