On the heels of Dover International Speedway’s announcement about free Harlem Globetrotters performances, the Micro Wrestling Federation will also perform multiple free shows in the FanZone on May 4 and 5 as part of the Monster Mile’s 50th-anniversary celebration, track officials announced.
The Micro Wrestling Federation has been drawing fans across the nation for almost 20 years for its shows featuring high-flying action, body slams and leaps from the top rope. Formed in 2000, the Micro Wrestling Federation features a cast of athletes and performers less than 5 feet tall.
Other fan activities coming during the Monster Mile’s May 3-5 NASCAR tripleheader weekend include:
