NASCAR’s Godzilla

The mascot of the Dover International Speedway and the world’s largest monster, “Miles the Monster” is a hulking beast that represents the havoc wreaked on NASCAR drivers by the high-banked concrete track affectionately referred to as “The Monster Mile.”

Officially born in 2000, the 46-foot beast with ominously lighted red eyes looms over visitors who come by to check out the winners plaques along his base. He holds a full-sized NASCAR in his right hand poised for either a good smashing or one heck of a victory celebration.
