For anyone who has ever wondered what it’s like to drive on NASCAR’s championship track, here’s your chance. Homestead-Miami Speedway will host “Give Back at the Track,” a two-part event where South Floridians will have the rare opportunity to drive around the 1.5-mile oval that hosts NASCAR’s championship races, in addition to testing out the Speedway’s 1/8-mile drag strip. Proceeds from the event will benefit Homestead-Miami Speedway’s charitable outreach program, Driving for a Cause.
The event will be split into two segments with participants having the opportunity to partake in both portions. From 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., drivers and guests can experience first-hand the Speedway’s unique progressive banking, as they take laps around the track. Following that, from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m., car enthusiasts will have the chance to run their street-legal cars in head-to-head drag races, which will be staged with the same set-up that fans have become accustomed to during Fast Lane Friday presented by The Ticket Clinic. All drivers for both events should enter the Speedway through Gate 18, located off SW 344th Street/Palm Drive. Motorcycles will not be able to participate in either portion of the event.
