Dover Air Force Base is two miles south of the city of Dover and is home to the "Eagle Wing" and "Liberty Wing." It is estimated to provide about $500 million in revenue to the City of Dover, making it the third largest industry in the state. Notable locations nearby include Dover Downs Horse Racing and Casino and The Monster Mile at Dover International Speedway, home to two NASCAR races each year.
