DOVER, Del. (May 2, 2018) - 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 4-6 weekend at Dover International Speedway by displaying a special decal on their cars and trucks.
Autism Delaware, a leader in the First State and the nation on autism awareness since its founding in 1998, is working to raise funds and awareness during the May 6 "AAA 400 Drive for Autism" Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the Monster Mile (2 p.m., Fox Sports 1).
This will be the 12th consecutive year that Dover International Speedway's spring Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race has had a tie-in with the autism community.
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 seventh straight year on Sunday, May 6. The event provides a sensory-friendly environment for children and families on the autism spectrum to enjoy the race and includes several driver appearances.
The May 4-6 NASCAR tripleheader weekend also includes the "JEGS 200" NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday, May 4 and the "OneMain Financial 200" NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash race on Saturday, May 5.
In total, 12 drivers from the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, 14 drivers from the NASCAR Xfinity Series and 18 drivers from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will display the Autism Delaware decal on their respective cars and trucks. They include:
