MIAMI— Martin Truex Jr. experienced the thrill of a lifetime on his final two laps of the 2017 Ford EcoBoost 400 en route to his first MENCS championship of his career. Now, all South Floridians will get an opportunity to feel that same excitement on Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, September 16, as Homestead-Miami Speedway hosts “Give Back at the Track,” an event that gives visitors the rare opportunity to drive around the 1.5 mile oval.
From 10:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m., drivers can experience first-hand the Speedway’s unique progressive banking as they run laps around the track. For a $20 donation, guests can take their street-legal vehicles for two laps around the oval following behind the official Homestead-Miami Speedway pace car. Additional laps will be available for a $10 donation per lap. Motorcycles will not be able to participate in the event.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Homestead-Miami Speedway’s charitable outreach program, “Driving for a Cause.” Since its inception in 2012, the funds raised through Driving for a Cause have been awarded through grants to several youth and education organizations.
Local car clubs are invited to attend the event for a group rate. Car clubs will receive a set amount of laps on the track. Please contact Brandon Ward at (305) 230-5228 or email@example.com for more details.
