Dover Offers "Breakfast With The Bagman"

Have breakfast with the Bagman!
Dover International Speedway has created a special, all-inclusive “Breakfast with the Bagman” package, featuring Delaware’s own Mike Bagley, for the Sunday, June 3 “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. 

The $99 option includes a ticket to the race in sections 202-204, an all-you-can-eat hot breakfast buffet, a souvenir program, and a question-and-answer session with Bagley. And you never know who else may pop in to say hello, too! 

Bagley is an on-air turn announcer with the Motor Racing Network (MRN), and also serves as host of The Morning Drive on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. He has strong ties to the area, growing up in Milford, Del., approx. 15 miles south of Dover International Speedway. Mike served for a short time as a PA announcer on race weekend in Dover, and went on to join MRN in 1992. 

The breakfast and question-and-answer session will be held in the Rollins Center ballroom in the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. Doors open at 7 a.m., breakfast will be available beginning at 7:30 a.m., and Bagley will arrive at 8 a.m. Ticket holders that already have purchased tickets to the June 3 “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race may add the package to their ticket for only $29. 

The morning will also include fun games for fans in attendance. A contest called “Bagley’s Pick” will be open to all fans in attendance. The morning of the “Breakfast with the Bagman” event, Bagley will select his choice for that day’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race winner. If his pick brings home the Monster trophy that day, each attendee will receive a free ticket to the next NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover. The prize is not transferable. 

“It was a no-brainer to create a package with our local racing veteran, Mike Bagley,” said Denis McGlynn, president and CEO of Dover Motorsports, Inc. “He attended races here as a kid with his parents, and has made us proud. He is always quick to crack a joke, and is rarely seen without a smile on his face. Race fans appreciate that, and his warmth and energy shines through on the radio.

“We hope his fans come out for a fun morning of stories and laughter with the Bagman.” 

The deadline to purchase the package is May 18, 2012.

NASCAR returns to the Monster Mile on June 1-3, 2012 with the June 1 “Lucas Oil 200” NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, the June 2 “5-hour ENERGY 200” NASCAR Nationwide Series race and the June 3 “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

  1. I noticed that breakfast starts at 7:30 and the Bagman shows up at 8. That will give folks a chance to get a bite.

  2. Good job with the post. Thank you for sharing the same.
