T-n-T and Car Show
Mustang under the lights at Homestead-Miami Speedway for Test & Tune
MIAMI – Homestead-Miami Speedway's T-n-T has been a smash hit ever since its opening night with more than 600 attendees.
Law enforcement 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 is proud to announce the development of the “T-n-T” experience, whereby car enthusiasts can test and tune their street-legal vehicles on a 1/8-mile course.

“People all over South Florida are aware of the dangers posed by illegal street racing,” said Gray. “Pick up a paper or watch the news, and you’re likely to come across an accident that occurred due to street racing. Well, the way to bring about change is through education and by offering alternatives, and Homestead- Miami Speedway is taking the lead with the 1/8th Mile T-n-T at THE Championship Track.”
“I think it’s great that the Speedway has come up with this option,” said Homestead Mayor Lynda Bell. “Illegal racing is extremely dangerous, and the track is providing participants a chance to test their cars and skills without jeopardizing themselves and innocent people on public roadways.”
Gwynn, a South Florida resident and one of the NHRA’s Top 50 All-Time Drivers, was paralyzed in a 1990 racing incident. In 2002, he formed the Darrell Gwynn Foundation to improve the quality of life for those afflicted with paralysis, and to provide wheelchairs to kids and young adults. Gwynn also introduced legislation paving the way for Florida Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week—the first of its kind in the U.S.
“Homestead-Miami Speedway has really taken the initiative to provide South Florida with a structured environment to both test and tune their vehicles, and I applaud that,” said Gwynn.
