NASCAR, IndyCar Championship Tix On Sale
Homestead-Miami Speedway will be the site of IZOD IndyCar Series Championship Weekend (Oct. 1-2) and NASCAR’s Ford Championship Weekend (Nov. 19-21)
Homestead-Miami Speedway is doing it again in 2010: The only venue ever to host all of North America’s premier motorsports’ Championship finales, THE Championship Track will be the site of IZOD IndyCar Series Championship Weekend (Oct. 1-2) and NASCAR’s Ford Championship Weekend (Nov. 19-21). Tickets for both go on sale THIS Saturday, July 3, via (866) 409-RACE or THEChampionshipTrack.com. Kids 12 & under are FREE to three of the five Championships.
“Homestead-Miami Speedway is as unique a Championship venue as you’ll find anywhere in sports,” said track president Matt Becherer. “Consider that all of the other major league sports rotate their Championships venues each year: The Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Finals, Stanley Cup Finals, and collegiate sports’ Final Four and BCS all switch up year-to-year. Not only will we be hosting NASCAR’s Ford Championship Weekend for a ninth consecutive year this fall, but we’ll be doing so while offering an average ticket price well below that of these other major sporting Championships."
“Toss in our free parking, kids pricing and bring-your-own-food-and-beverage policy for both the NASCAR and IndyCar Championship weekends, and that’s as fan-friendly and value-driven an approach as you’ll find in big-league sports for a Championship event. And come this Saturday, all the best seats are available via THEChampionshipTrack.com and (866) 409-RACE.”
With the IndyCar Championship having gone down to the final lap of the final race each of the last four seasons, fans can expect more of the same during the NextEra Energy Indy Championships at Homestead-Miami Speedway (Oct. 1-2). Catch Danica Patrick, South Florida’s Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan, Scott Dixon, reigning-Champion Dario Franchitti and all of open-wheel racing’s top drivers as they race side-by-side at speeds of more than 200 mph under the Miami lights.
And seven weeks later (Nov. 19-21), Homestead-Miami Speedway will host NASCAR for its series-crowning Ford Championship Weekend, featuring the Championship finales of the Sprint Cup, Nationwide and the Camping World Truck Series. Among those racing for Miami glory will be four-time Champions Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Mark Martin, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, Kurt and Kyle Busch, and South Florida’s own Juan Pablo Montoya.
Patrick, motorsports’ first lady, is scheduled to race at Homestead-Miami Speedway during both IndyCar Championship Weekend and NASCAR’s Ford Championship Weekend. The IndyCar-developmental series, Firestone Indy Lights, also will crown a Champion during the NextEra Energy Indy Championships at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Tickets for both Championship weekends are on sale THIS Saturday, July 3, via THEChampionshipTrack.com or (866) 409-RACE (toll free).
