“Fast Lane Friday” presented by the Ticket Clinic is returning to Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday, January 22. Car enthusiasts and guests will be able to enter their street-legal car to compete on the Speedway’s 1/8-mile drag strip from 6 p.m. to midnight.
Also on Friday, one of 10 semi-finalists from a recent contest will have a chance to win a 2016 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Fastback. Homestead-Miami Speedway, Coca-Cola, South Florida Ford Dealers and 7-Eleven partnered on a contest held from October through December 2015. Ten people were picked from all of those who signed up during this time, and each of the 10 will be treated to a special night at Fast Lane Friday, including pace car rides around the 1.5-mile oval and other special amenities. Then, one of the 10 will find out if they are the new owner of the Mustang.
Law enforcements and advocacy groups long have sought safe alternatives to illegal street racing that plagues South Florida roadways. To combat this dangerous activity, Homestead-Miami Speedway created “Fast Lane Friday”, a legal drag racing event open to all car enthusiasts 18 and older with a valid driver’s license and proof of registration/insurance. Drivers will be able to race their cars against other street-legal cars on the drag strip as many times as they would like throughout the night.
Tickets to race in “Fast Lane Friday” are $20 for participants and $10 for spectators coming to watch the event. Children 12 and younger get in for free, and concessions will be available for purchase. Homestead-Miami Speedway’s cooler policy applies, which allows fans to bring in soft-sided coolers measuring up to 14x14x14 inches, as well as lightweight backpacks.
