The Sleeping Monster: 5-hour ENERGY® hosts an Open Track Session Before the Race

You may have seen a race at a NASCAR track. You’ve experienced the rambunctious crowds, navigated through a sea of coolers, and held your breath for the waving green flag that signifies the start of the race. But, what is the track like when engines aren’t roaring and fans aren’t there to scream for their favorite driver? Well, 5-hour ENERGY® is giving you the opportunity to find out.

From 8:30 – 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 14, the 2011 title sponsor of the NASCAR Nationwide race at Dover International Speedway will open up the Monster Mile to host the “5-hour ENERGY Open Track” session. Fans will be allowed entrance to the track at Gate 18 and get an up-close look at pit road the frontstretch of Dover International Speedway, home of the 5-hour ENERGY® 200.

Steve Wallace fans entering the “5-hour ENERGY Open Track” session will be thrilled to discover that the No. 66 racecar driver himself will make an appearance from 9 – 9:45 a.m. He’ll be there getting his mug taken with a few fans and signing autographs. 5-hour ENERGY Racing fans will also have the chance to inspect the 5-hour ENERGY Toyota up-close.

All fans wishing to gain entrance to the “5-hour ENERGY Open Track” session the morning of big race must carry their 5-hour ENERGY 200 Nationwide Series tickets with them. Hold on to your tickets though, you’ll still need them to re-enter Dover International Speedway later on that day.

We know you’re eager to down a couple refreshing sodas within the confines of the Monster Mile, but please leave all coolers and bags at home until the 5-hour ENERGY 200 begins.
