Homestead-Miami Speedway will host the IndyCar Series for a doubleheader of Championships on Oct. 2 and is providing guest amenities to please both first-time guests and the most passionate racing fans including:
► Adult tickets starting at $30
► Kids 12 & under FREE in general-admission seating
► FREE general parking
► Parking upgrades to Infield Road Course
This fall, Homestead-Miami Speedway will crown all five 2010 Champions in North America’s premier motorsports series. The NextEra Energy Indy Championships (Oct. 1-2)—highlighted by the Cafés Do Brasil Indy 300—will feature Danica Patrick, South Florida residents Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti, Scott Dixon, Will Power and more all vying to defeat reigning Indy 300 winner, and 2009 IndyCar Series Champion, Dario Franchitti.
The action takes place on the progressive 18-20 degree variable banking at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and tickets start at $30, with all kids 12 and under admitted FREE. Homestead-Miami also offers FREE parking and invites guests to bring their own food and drink into the Speedway with unlimited re-entry to restock their 6x6x12 cooler in the parking lots.
Speaking of Danica, motorsports’ first lady will have a busy fall schedule at Homestead-Miami Speedway—racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway during both the IndyCar Championship Weekend (Oct. 2) and NASCAR’s Ford Championship Weekend (Nov. 20)—and a special “Double the Danica” ticket package is available here. Lock in tickets to see the 2010 Champions crowned in Miami this fall by logging on to THEChampionshipTrack.com or by calling (866) 409-RACE.
In Miami, the high-speed drama and suspense will play out under the lights on the 1.5-mile, variable-banked track, with the IndyCars inches away from one another while reaching speeds in excess of 220 miles per hour.
“Homestead-Miami is a racetrack that suits my driving style,” said 2005 IndyCar Champion Dan Wheldon. “The race is always incredibly challenging because the car does change as the temperatures cool off in the night. Because of the fact that it is a night race, this adds to the excitement for the fans and allows us as drivers to sleep in, which is always good.”
Sleep is good for race car drivers; saving is good for race car fans. And the NextEra Energy Indy Championships at Homestead-Miami Speedway offer a world-class international motorsports event with tickets starting at $30 and all kids 12 and under admitted FREE.
Homestead-Miami also offers FREE parking and invites guests to bring their own food and drink into the Speedway with unlimited re-entry to restock their 6x6x12 cooler in the parking lots. In addition to all of the world-class racing excitement on the track, there will be plenty of activity off-track, including live music and interactive displays.
Prior to the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series Champion being crowned on Oct. 2, that same afternoon the stars of tomorrow will run for the Firestone Indy Lights Series title in the Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka 100. Indy Lights is the premier ladder series for drivers who aspire to compete at the highest level of open-wheel motorsports in North America, with a graduate-roster that includes Marco Andretti, Miami’s Raphael Matos and Hideki Mutoh.
