DOVER, July 1, 2011: For more than two years now, Dover International Speedway has offered fans a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the Monster Mile through its “Explore the Monster” facility tours. Well, that intimate experience is about to be enhanced with the addition of Segways to create the “SegZone Monster Mile Experience.”

SegZone Tours, a Delaware-based company, will begin operating tours of Dover International Speedway on their eco-friendly, battery operated, and totally wireless two-wheel Personal Transporter, known as a Segway.

The guided tour includes stops at the Monster Monument in Victory Plaza, presented by AAA; Victory Lane, where fans can get pictures on the same stage that drivers like Jimmie Johnson and most recently Matt Kenseth have accepted their monster trophy; the frontstrech of the track as well as pit road; the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage; the Monster Bridge, overlooking Turn 3 of the track; the Infield Media Center; and more.

All tours will be led by a Dover International Speedway tour guide, and each participant will be given an earphone to hear the tour guide while traveling on the Segways. Tours will last approximately two hours and 15 minutes, which includes a familiarization period for participants to get comfortable with the feel and operation of their Segway.

For pricing and reservations, visit to book online or call 877-318-7747. Cash or credit cards are accepted, and participants must register in advance.

Tours are conducted most Wednesdays, as well as some Saturdays and Sundays, weather permitting. Currently, available tour dates include: July 6, 13, 16, 17, 27, 30 and 31; and August 3, 6, 7, 10, 17, 20, 24, 27, 28 and 31. Most tours will begin at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Special arrangements for groups of 15 or more can be scheduled by calling 877-318-7747.

Souvenirs will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the tour. Cameras are encouraged and provide a great way to capture the thrill of being able to stand atop Victory Lane at the Monster Mile.

NASCAR returns to the Monster Mile on Sept. 30-Oct. 2, 2011. For tickets or more information, call 800-441-RACE or visit
