HOMESTEAD MIAMI SPEEDWAY
Welcome to Miami | Spectator Sports | Championship Events
Participatory Sports | Guide Services
The speedway was constructed, with the efforts of promoter Ralph Sanchez, as part of a plan to help Homestead rebound after the devastation caused by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Groundbreaking began August 24, 1993, less than a year after the hurricane. It opened in November 1995 with a NASCAR Busch Series (currently the Nationwide Series) race. In the spring of 1996, the CART series held its first race there. The facility is considered by some to be one of the most beautiful in the country. Though located southwest of Miami, the track reflects the art deco district of downtown Miami with its liberal use of colours such as aqua, purple and silver.
It plays host to Ford Championship Weekend, the final races of the season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series, and the Camping World Truck Series. These races are currently all sponsored by Ford Motor Company, taking the names Ford 400, Ford 300, and Ford 200, respectively. Beginning in 2009 Homestead is home to four season-ending racing series events, with the GAINSCO Auto Insurance Indy 300 for the IRL IndyCar Series moving to October from its traditional early season slot.
