Sparked by Austin Dillon’s leadoff triple in the first inning, Team Dover quickly put three runs on the board and went on to beat Team Pocono, 10-3, in the fourth annual Dover versus Pocono Celebrity Softball Game that was played Tuesday in Wilmington,
Delaware. Kasey Kahne, who singled in his first at-bat, helped lead Team Pocono’s effort in the game that took place at Frawley Stadium, home of the Wilmington Blue Rocks – Class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. Rosters of each team were filled with members of the local and national motor sports media, and other regional media personalities.
The softball exhibition helps promote upcoming NASCAR weekends at Dover International Speedway … May 13th through the 15th… and at Pocono Raceway … June 3rd through the 5th… Dillon’s had a busy week, traveling from Delaware to North Carolina for a Wednesday media event and then on to Kansas Speedway for Sunday’s Go Bowling 400.
