Law enforcement and advocacy groups long have sought safe alternatives to combat the rise of illegal street racing on South Florida roadways, and in June 2009 Homestead-Miami Speedway answered the call by launching its “Speedway T-n-T & Car Show,” providing car enthusiasts an opportunity to test and tune street-legal vehicles in a controlled environment on a 1/8-mile course at THE Championship Track.

“People all over South Florida are aware of the dangers posed by illegal street racing,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Curtis 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 ‘Speedway T-n-T’ at THE Championship Track.”

Guests of “Speedway T-n-T” are also invited to catch the action from the Garage Suites overlooking the 1/8-mile course along Pit Road, as well as showcase their vehicles in a car-club environment in the very garages that house NASCAR, IndyCar and Grand-Am Champions. All types of street-legal vehicles are welcome and on display.

“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.”

Homestead-Miami Speedway hosts “Speedway T-n-T” under the lights every Friday night year-round from 6 pm to Midnight. For more info, call (305) 230-5374 or visit THEChampionshipTrack.com.
