If you’re planning on heading south this weekend through Delaware, you might want to adjust your plans. You see, NASCAR is in Dover through Sunday, which means your scenic drive to the beach might be interrupted by gas-guzzling RVs making their way to the races.
NASCAR remains a huge economic engine for Kent County. An economic impact study hasn’t been done on the race since 1991, but Cindy Small at Kent County Tourism tells me that the two races are the top two draws in Dover for the entire year – no other event brings as many people at once to Kent County.
Good thing Grotto’s Pizza opened their new Dover location in time for the race.
