NASCAR announced Tuesday that Homestead-Miami Speedway will again crown champions in all three of its top national circuits in 2014: the Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series. Next year’s Ford Championship Weekend will take place Nov. 14-16, marking the 13th consecutive year that Homestead-Miami Speedway will host the championships of America’s No. 1 spectator sport.

“It’s a privilege to host the Championship finales for one of the most watched and followed sports in North America,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. “This is a testament to our facility, the loyal fans we have in South Florida, and to the fans that travel from afar to Ford Championship Weekend.  There’s no better place to be in mid November than greater Miami.”

As has been the case since 2002, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season will begin and end in Florida, kicking off at Daytona International Speedway with the 56th running of the Daytona 500 live on FOX on Feb. 23, and culminating with the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 16.
 
For the fourth consecutive season, the Chase For The NASCAR Sprint Cup will start at Chicagoland Speedway (Sept. 14) and conclude live on ESPN on Nov. 16 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Since the debut of Ford Championship Weekend in 2002, Homestead-Miami Speedway has played host to historic NASCAR moments.  They include Roush Fenway Racing driver Greg Biffle beating Mark Martin to the finish line by .017 seconds in 2005 to win his second straight Ford 400. In 2011, for the first time in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history, the championship ended in a draw. Tony Stewart ended up tied with Edwards in points but won the championship tiebreaker based on the number of victories including his win at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Speedway has been open since 1995 following an initiative to spur economic recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew.  The 650-acre facility is active more than 280 days per year and will host NASCAR’s championship races during Ford Championship Weekend (November 15-17, 2013) for the 12th consecutive year.  The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship Ford EcoBoost 400 is broadcast live on TV and radio to 175 countries in 24 languages.  Homestead-Miami Speedway, featuring a 1.5-mile oval and 2.21-mile road course, generates more than $250 million annually for the region.
 
The 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion will be crowned Sunday, November 17.  The Ford EcoBoost 400 race winner will receive a custom Bay Boat built by industry icon Contender, a Homestead-based company.
