HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY TO HOST
“GIVE BACK AT THE TRACK” ON AUGUST 17 AND SEPTEMBER 21
MIAMI— Last year’s Ford EcoBoost 400 was one of the most thrilling championship races at Homestead-Miami Speedway as Joey Logano took the lead with 12 laps to go en route to the first championship of his career. Now, everyone will get an opportunity to feel that same excitement on Saturday, August 17 and Saturday, September 21, as Homestead-Miami Speedway hosts “Give Back at the Track,” an event that gives guests the rare opportunity to drive around the 1.5-mile championship oval.
From 10:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m. on both days, drivers can experience first-hand the picturesque setting of Homestead-Miami Speedway and it’s unique progressive banking as they run laps around the track. For a $25 donation, guests can take their street-legal vehicles for three laps around the oval following behind the official Homestead-Miami Speedway pace car. Additional laps will be available for a $10 donation per lap.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Homestead-Miami Speedway’s charitable outreach program, “Driving for a Cause,” which benefits several local youth and education organizations.
Local car clubs are invited to attend the event for a group rate. Car clubs will receive a set amount of laps on the track. Please contact Clayton Juel at (305) 230-5209 orfor more details.
