Homestead-Miami Speedway Goes “All In” to Curb Illegal Street Racing
“T-n-T All In!”—a 12-hour, family friendly automotive extravaganza at which guests can test and tune street-legal vehicles in a controlled environment
On Saturday, May 15, Homestead-Miami Speedway will open to the public a 1/8-mile stretch of THE Championship Track for “T-n-T All In!”—a 12-hour, family friendly automotive extravaganza at which guests can test and tune street-legal vehicles in a controlled environment.
This premier day-night edition of “T-n-T All In!” will feature car and bike shows, live music and a variety of food vendors. And for the first time ever, Homestead-Miami Speedway is inviting retailers and hobbyists to set up shop “swap-meet style” to buy, sell and trade automotive wares in the same garage areas that this fall will house drivers battling for the Championships in both IndyCar (Oct. 1-2) and NASCAR (Nov. 19-21). For ticket information on the Championship finales at HMS, stay tuned to THEChampionshipTrack.com or call (866) 409-RACE.
Last summer, Homestead-Miami Speedway launched its Friday night “Speedway T-n-T” car competition with the goal of combating the rise of illegal street racing on South Florida roadways. In the ensuing months, throngs of South Floridians have flocked to the Speedway on Friday nights to test and tune their street-legal vehicles in a controlled environment.
“While the hours and activities are going to be amped up for ‘T-n-T All In!’ on May 15th, the message is the same as it’s been every Friday night at T-n-T: Keep the racing off the streets,” said Speedway President Matt Becherer. “We’ve got the ultimate alternative in providing car enthusiasts a controlled environment on the very same asphalt that this fall will host NASCAR and IndyCar Championship contenders Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Danica Patrick, and South Florida’s Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan and Juan Pablo Montoya.”
On Saturday, May 15, from 12 noon to 12 midnight, all drivers carrying valid license and vehicle
registration can test and tune their street-legal vehicles on a 1/8-mile course and also enjoy:
• 12 hours of on-track competition and entertainment ($20 for competitors, $10 for
spectators, $5 children 12 and under)
• Car and motorcycle exhibition show ($15 admission to display)
• Automotive swap meet ($50 for a 15x25 space; additional opportunities available)
• Brand new timing system measuring both speed (MPH) and elapsed time (ET)
• Live musical performances from Robot Tea Party (4-6 p.m.) and Travler (8-11 p.m.)
• A variety of food option, scheduled to include seafood, chili, BBQ and desserts
