The Speedway has been open since 1995 following an initiative to spur economic recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The 600-acre facility is active more than 300 days per year and will host NASCAR’s championship races during Ford Championship Weekend (November 18-20, 2016) for the 15th consecutive year. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship Ford EcoBoost 400 is broadcast live on TV and radio to 200 countries in 24 languages. Homestead-Miami Speedway, featuring a 1.5-mile oval and 2.21-mile road course, generates more than $301 million annually for the region.
