Dover Motorsports, Inc. And Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment, Inc. Cancel Plans To Merge

Dover Motorsports, Inc. (NYSE: DVD) and Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: DDE) jointly announced today that the Boards of Directors of each company have unanimously determined to terminate their previously announced merger agreement, dated September 27, 2010.

Henry B. Tippie, Chairman of the Board of Directors of both companies stated as follows:

"When we approved the merger of our two companies, the Boards of Directors of both companies agreed that we would only proceed if the merger was approved by a majority of unaffiliated stockholders. Since making the announcement of our proposed merger, certain stockholders of both companies have communicated that they are opposed to the transaction. While we believe that combining the two companies would have benefited both organizations, we have agreed to a mutual termination of our merger agreement.”

Such statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties that could cause results to vary materially. Please refer to the SEC filings of both Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment, Inc. and Dover Motorsports, Inc. for a discussion of such factors.
