FOX Sports highlighted our continued partnership with FedEx and Dover International Speedway for our 5th year of the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the one-mile speedway on Sunday, May 31.
"We couldn't be happier to have FedEx back on board as title sponsor for our spring NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event," Michael Tatoian, president and CEO of Dover International Speedway, told FOX Sports. "Their involvement helps elevate the weekend to the next level, and their support of Autism Speaks should not go unnoticed. They truly are engaged in this effort and an exemplary corporate citizen."
This unique event provides those on the autism spectrum and their families with the opportunity to attend a NASCAR race in a comfortable environment. The special ticket package provides seating in a sensory friendly area within air‐conditioned grandstands, which offers great views of the race along the backstretch of the track; pre‐race appearances by NASCAR drivers and personalities; brief presentations by educational speakers in the morning; food and drink; and much more.
The dedicated area provides a quiet zone, with muted lighting in a calmer environment for parents to help their children escape the crowd if necessary. The room features comfortable seating, games, and video screens to help fans keep up with the action on the track or watch family friendly movies.
Tickets cost $88 for adults and $20 for children ages 14 and under. Autism Speaks will receive a portion of the proceeds. To purchase tickets to Autism Speaks Day at the Races, call 800-441-RACE or visit www.MonsterMileOffers.com/AutismSpeaks.
