   When Kyle Busch captured the checkered flag at the end of the ISM Connect 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this past Sunday, the countdown to Miami continued as there are now only seven races until the NASCAR circuit reaches Miami. And as we head into the third race of the Round of 16 this weekend at Dover International Speedway, it is just another reminder that Ford Championship weekend is right around the corner.

Bringing the Intensity - NASCAR playoffs move to New Hampshire this weekend

When it comes to sports, there are always competitive juices flowing between athletes. It doesn’t matter who is on the other side of the ball or leading the pack on the track, that person is an opponent, and the main goal is to beat them. And though athletes want to win no matter how big or small the circumstance is, the will to win certainly increases when the stakes are at their highest.

Kids Drive NASCAR - Youth Tickets for Ford Championship

   The youth movement in NASCAR has been on full display this year, as the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ youngest stars have performed at a very high level and have even exceeded many expectations. It started off with 24-year-old Kyle Larson’s victory at Auto Club Speedway in March, and it has only escalated from there. Since Larson’s win, Austin Dillon (27) and Ryan Blaney (23) have also won races in the Monster Energy Series, collecting the first victories of their respective careers. Larson also picked up two triumphs at Michigan International Speedway in 2017. In addition, Chase Elliott, who is 21 years of age, has stayed in contention for a spot in the series’ postseason, as he currently sits in 14th place in the playoff standings.

Give Back at the Track

When it comes to giving back to the South Florida community, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to incorporate our resources. As a track, we are in a unique position because we have a 1.5-mile oval that has been the site of NASCAR’s championship races for the past 15 years as our greatest asset. So when we are creating new events or even improving on old ones, our first thought is how we can best utilize it.
