Dover International Speedway reducing seating


The sights and sounds of construction are reverberating through the grandstands at Dover International Speedway once again.

This marks the fourth time track officials have made the decision to try to find the "right size" of the grandstand capacity by removing seats to address the changing demands of the sports and entertainment industry, according to Mike Tatoian, president and CEO of Dover International Speedway.

Dover International Speedway, which saw its seating capacity reach a peak of approximately 135,000 seats in 2001, will have its capacity reduced from 83,000 seats to 54,000 outdoor seats when the NASCAR Cup Series returns to the "Monster Mile" on May 3, 2020 – a reduction of 29,000 seats.
