Homestead-Miami Speedway has partnered with NASCAR driver and South Florida resident Juan Pablo Montoya to create “Race Day with Juan”—an exclusive meet-and-greet opportunity prior to the Nov. 21 Sprint Cup Championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The “Race Day with Juan” package benefits the Formula Smiles Foundation and includes:

► Ticket to Sprint Cup Championship-finale Ford 400 (front-stretch west, rows 11-21);
► Private pre-race meet-and-greet with Montoya in the infield Driver’s Meeting Room;
► Pre-Race Track Pass access to front-stretch for photos, autographs, Q&A sessions;
► No. 42 Target Chevrolet commemorative hat;
► $42 donation to the Formula Smiles Foundation headed by Montoya and wife Connie

“We are really excited about Juan Pablo’s return to Homestead-Miami Speedway Nov. 21,” said track president Matthew Becherer. “He is an international motorsports superstar who brings a fantastic style of no-holds-barred racing made all the more special by what he and Connie do off the track with Formula Smiles—a perfect ‘home track’ match for Homestead-Miami Speedway.”

The Montoya’s Formula Smiles Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for Colombian children in vulnerable situations via participation in sports to reinforce classroom lessons; raising motivation to continue education; gaining appreciation for the valuable use of free time; learning values to improve self esteem; and incentivizing kids to stay away from drugs and violence.

“Colombia has suffered a great deal of social conflict in the last 50 years, so we are trying to get the community together,” said Connie. “Formula Smiles provides children with a place to practice sports, enjoy after-school activities and learn core values….creating smiles.”

“It’s great to get involved with Homestead-Miami Speedway, my home track, and do something for the fans,” Juan Pablo said. “This will give fans a chance to sit down and get to know me.”

Montoya is in just his fourth year in NASCAR after dominating the open-wheel racing circuit, where he won a CART Championship, the Indianapolis 500 and seven Formula 1 races. A Miami resident since 2007, the Colombian native made motorsports history last fall as the first non-American born driver ever to qualify for NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup “playoffs.” This season, Montoya carries a driver rating of 93.2 to rank ninth in the Sprint Cup Series.
