The Harlem Globetrotters, the legendary basketball team that wows fans of all ages with its ball skills, trick shots, comedy and more, will return to Dover International Speedway on Sunday, Oct. 6, as part of the Monster Mile’s 50th Anniversary celebration.
The team will bring a series of performances titled the “Globetrotters Experience,” a live 30-minute show which encapsulates the team’s one-of-a-kind basketball artistry, high-flying dunks and side-splitting court on-court antics, to Dover International Speedway’s 8-acre FanZone on Oct. 6 before that day’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoff race (2:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN). The show times are set for 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The Globetrotters, first organized in 1926, perform more than 400 shows around the world each year with its distinctive red, white and blue uniforms. The exhibition team is known for its colorful personalities, audience interaction and supreme basketball skills. The Globetrotters also made multiple appearances around the Monster Mile on Sunday, May 5, but their on-court performances were canceled due to rain.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the Harlem Globetrotters back to the Monster Mile and hope to see many families in the crowd when they perform their free shows in the FanZone on Oct. 6,” said Dover International Speedway President and CEO Mike Tatoian.
