Homestead-Miami Speedway today announced that an ASA Big Air Triples contest will be held Saturday (Nov. 16) and Sunday (Nov. 17) at the South Florida track in conjunction with Ford Championship Weekend (Nov. 15-17). Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer made the announcement.
The contest will take place on a 195’ long ramp in the Midway display area at the track. The riders will drop in off a 26’ high ramp and perform tricks on three separate jumps.
A qualifying round competition to determine the seeding for the event will be held on Saturday, November 16, at 2:00 p.m. EST with the nationally-televised Finals to take place Sunday, November 17, at 11:00 a.m. EST. The field of talent in this exciting head-to-head contest includes the biggest names in action sports. Thirteen time X Games medalist Ryan Nyquist, eight-time X Games medalist Scotty Cranmer, Dew Cup Champions Kyle Baldock and Ryan Guettler and Big Air champions Zack Warden, Pat Casey and Colton Satterfield are among the top ranked professionals scheduled to participate. Known in the BMX world as the veritable “who’s who,” these riders will be competing at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the first time.
All that’s required to watch the events is a ticket to that particular day’s race, whether it’s Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series Ford EcoBoost 300 or Sunday’s season-ending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Ford EcoBoost 400.
“We are always focused on delivering value to our guests,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. “This event will deliver value in a big way. Sunday’s competition will make for a great pair of finales for our fans.”
“Linking action sports and NASCAR forms a powerful combination with two passionate and loyal fan bases that will bring a new youth driven energy to the final event of the 2013 Chase for The Sprint Cup,” said Rick Bratman, chief executive officer of ASA Entertainment and producer of the ASA Big Air Triples. “Spectators attending the race will see huge stunts and mind-boggling tricks from the world’s top pros like something directly out of a video game.”
The event will be telecast nationally on Fox Sports Net (FSN) on Sunday, December 22, on a tape delayed basis. November’s competition will mark the Miami market debut for the ASA Big Air Triples tour that’s now in its seventh season.
