Dover Motorsports, Inc. (formerly Dover Downs Entertainment) is a company that owned several auto racing circuits in the United States. The company is based in Dover, Delaware, United States, the home of its flagship track Dover International Speedway, a 1 mile (1.6 km) concrete oval with a seating capacity of 95,500 that opened in 1969. The company formerly owned the Dover Downs harness racing track adjacent to the Dover speedway. Dover Motorsports formerly operated Nashville Superspeedway, a 1.333 mile concrete oval track in Lebanon, Tennessee, and Gateway International Raceway, a 1.25 mile egg-shaped asphalt oval track in Madison, Illinois, in addition to its flagship one-mile concrete oval track. Dover Motorsports owned Memphis Motorsports Park, a 0.75 mile tri-oval asphalt short track in Millington, Tennessee, but closed the track in October 2009 to competition and was sold to Palm Beach International Raceway after sitting unused for over a year.
In 2011, Dover Motorsports announced that it will not sanction NASCAR events at Gateway International Raceway, and Nashville Superspeedway will also no longer host NASCAR races starting in 2012. In 2021, Nashville Superspeedway is planned to reopen and host a NASCAR race weekend, which will replace one of the race weekends at Dover International Speedway.
