Dover Speedway "Excited To Play Role" With Punkin Chunkin

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - NASCAR and Firefly are two marquee events already speeding down the track known as the Monster Mile.

But could pumpkins soon follow?

47 ABC reported on Thursday that Punkin Chunkin event may move out of Sussex County to the Dover International Speedway in Kent County. Officials at the Speedway say the event makes sense for them and that the weekend of October 24th is open.

"We have the infrastructure, we certainly have experience hosting large events and we are excited we can play a role potentially at keeping a marquee event like this that's distinctly Delaware in the state of Delaware," said Gary Camp, senior director of communications at Dover International Speedway.

But the decision is out of their hands at the moment. The Punkin Chunkin Association will meet on Sunday to work out the details.

Last year's team captains will ultimately make the final call with a vote.
