2018 MMYN Design Challenge Begins!

Dover International Speedway, home of The Monster Mile, is excited to announce the kickoff of the third annual “Monster Mile Youth Nation Design Challenge,” a free project for fifth-grade art students that combines the thrills of NASCAR with the skills of art, creativity and design.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Ryan Truex and Gallaher Elementary School fifth-grader Calista Rakshit stand next to her winning design concept and Dover International Speedway’s traveling pace car on April 25, 2017.

In January and February of 2018, fifth-grade students in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania will have the opportunity to design Dover International Speedway’s traveling pace car. Using simple tools such as crayons, markers and colored pencils, students are encouraged to be as creative as possible with their designs.

The winning design will be converted to reality in March, national “Youth Art Month,” and will appear on the Speedway’s traveling pace car that will be used during our 2018 racing season.

The top design will be unveiled at the winning student’s school prior to Dover International Speedway’s May 4-6 NASCAR tripleheader weekend, featuring the “AAA 400 Drive for Autism” Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, May 6. The winning student will receive a VIP experience at the “AAA 400 Drive for Autism” Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, including the opportunity to be recognized during pre-race activities and a hospitality package.

Fifth-graders from the following counties are eligible to participate in the 2018 MMYN Design Challenge:

DELAWARE: Kent, New Castle, Sussex

MARYLAND: Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, Worcester,
