For the 10th consecutive year this fall, Homestead-Miami Speedway will serve as host to Ford Championship Weekend (Nov. 18-20), as NASCAR crowns its Champions in all three of its top national divisions—the Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series.
In addition to all that comes with NASCAR’s biggest weekend in Miami—three days of series-crowning Championship finales, tailgating in Homestead-Miami Speedway’s FREE parking lots, live music and interactive-display areas throughout the midway—South Florida also offers tropical November temperatures, sunshine and the ocean, first-class restaurants, fishing in the Keys and second-to-none South Florida nightlife.
With that lineup, fans renewing their tickets prior to the March 18 deadline for this November’s Ford Championship Weekend 2011 (Nov. 18-20) will find even more incentives aimed at an improved fan experience, including:
► Discounted renewal prices up to $45 off regular Sprint Cup Championship price
► FREE kids (12 & under) admission into general-admission seating area for the Camping World Truck AND Nationwide Championship and HALF PRICE in reserved-grandstands for the Sprint Cup AND Nationwide Championship
► A new general-admission seating area for the Nationwide Championship (as with Camping World Truck Series), allowing fans to select their seat(s) of preference
► Widening of all grandstand seats
► Flexible Payment Plan: Lock in with just 10% down on first payment
► Opportunity to be on-track during post-race Championship celebration (3-day “Hard Card” holders)
► Pre-Race Pit Pass broadened to include Saturday/Nationwide access in addition to Sunday/Sprint Cup
► Ticket print-at-home option to save customers $5 per order
► A continuation of an unprecedented bring-your-own policy that Homestead-Miami Speedway announced in recent months that allows fans to enter the Speedway with soft-sided coolers measuring as large as 14x14x14 inches—six times the previous dimension limits—as well as a lightweight backpack to carry items like cameras and souvenirs.
“We continue to make changes to elevate the fan experience,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. “All of the above is in addition to our recent introduction of both a brand new, state-of-the art scoring tower/leader board and a new LED scoring ribbon on the front of the Main Tower to enhance the experience for the fans seated in the infield.”
Homestead-Miami Speedway also will continue to welcome fans into the infield and on to Pit Road, and feature driver meet-and-greets and autograph sessions.
“With everything that has changed for 2011—from wider seats to FREE kids admission and beyond—fans should have a better experience than ever at Homestead-Miami Speedway,” said Becherer. “We can’t wait to host you for Ford Championship Weekend this November.”
