NASCAR's Season Finale, One of Sports' Most Celebrated Championships!
The arrival of the month of April means an important date is only weeks away. While some may think of Tax Day, others know that tickets to NASCAR's Ford Championship Weekend go on sale to the general public on an April morning each year and anxiously await that opportunity.
At 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 21, tickets for the season finales of the NASCAR Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck Series to be held November 16-18, will finally be available to the public. Race fans will be able to secure their tickets by calling (866) 409-RACE, or by visiting homesteadmiamispeedway.com, or www.Racetickets.com
Tickets for the 2006 Ford 400, NASCAR Nextel Cup Series season finale, sold out five months before the event, and an even earlier sellout date is expected for 2007. Last November fans watched as Greg Biffle won the Ford 400 for the third straight year at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but Jimmie Johnson's ninth place finish and previously earned points were enough to win the Nextel Cup championship trophy. With the change from ten to twelve drivers in the Chase for the NASCAR Nextel Cup in 2007, there is sure to be even more excitement than ever before.
"Last year proved once again that Ford Championship Weekend is the toughest annual sports ticket to obtain in South Florida," said Curtis Gray, President of Homestead-Miami Speedway. "With the addition of night races and the side-by-side racing on our 18 to 20-degree variable banking, this event gets better each year. We encourage fans to act now and secure their tickets to this year's Ford Championship Weekend. Tickets are not going to last."
All three NASCAR Series, the Craftsman Truck, Busch, and NEXTEL Cup will crown champions under the lights during Ford Championship Weekend. The Ford 200 is scheduled for Friday, November 16, the Ford 300 will take place Saturday, November 17, and the Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup will culminate with the Ford 400 on Sunday, November 18. Each day will also feature concerts, interactive exhibits, and other exciting action, included in the price of your admission ticket.
