The holiday season will be merry and bright at Dover Motor Speedway as the “Gift of Lights at Dover Motor Speedway” drive-thru event comes to the Monster Mile.

According to their website, the Gift of Lights event will run every evening from Thanksgiving thru New Year’s Day.  Guests will see more than 60 scenes and 3 million lights!  Woah!  All set up along a 1.5 mile path winding through the Woodlands of Dover Motor Speedway.

“We‘re very pleased to be able to offer this drive-thru holiday light display to all families in the region,” said Mike Tatoian, Dover Motor Speedway‘s president and general manager. “Dover Motor Speedway has been the location for magical memories for more than 50 years and the ‘Gift of Lights‘ show brings a whole new chapter to that history.
