STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Taking coronavirus vaccine remains a hard choice for some people, so a Delaware racetrack is offering a victory lap to those who do. Up to 800 people get to drive the Monster Mile at Dover International Speedway. You get a shot right at the track, and some people also get NASCAR tickets. The events this month let people drive two laps in their own cars behind a pace car. It is, of course, called the Race to End COVID. It's MORNING EDITION.
