With the expected number of patrons attending the festival, Leipsic Road and Persimmon Tree Road in the vicinity of Dover International Speedway will be closed to through traffic beginning at noon on Thursday, June 14, 2018 until Sunday evening, June 17, 2018.
At the conclusion of the festival, all roads will be reopened. Local residents will not have access through the closure area until the conclusion of the festival.
Camping/RV processing will be located at Dover International Speedway (DIS) Lot 1 (Lot 1 is the largest DIS parking lot) located south of the speedway bordered by US 13, Leipsic Road, and Plaza Drive.
