Dover International Speedway officials have announced the 2013 NASCAR race dates. Two tripleheaders of racing action will return to the Monster Mile on May 31-June 2 and September 27-29, 2013.

New next season, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying will return to its traditional Friday afternoon time on the schedule as it precedes that afternoon’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in the spring and NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race in the fall.

Both race weekends will again feature three days of action, including the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in the spring; and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in the fall.

In addition, the Monster Mile’s three-tier pricing program will return, rewarding fans with the lowest prices from the track and encouraging fans to buy early and save.

Fans can begin placing deposits on tickets for the September 27-29, 2013, race weekend during Dover’s September 28-30, 2012, race weekend.
