“Ford Championship Weekend continues to be one of the biggest events in all of sports and has grown in stature over the last 17 years to become the monumental weekend that it is today,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. “There’s so many intriguing storylines with Ford Championship Weekend every year as we crown champions in each of NASCAR’s three series, but we also offer other tremendous entertainment and family activities to ensure that we provide our crowd with an entire weekend of action both on and off the track. For the fifth consecutive year, NASCAR will be racing in front of a sold out crowd here on Sunday and I can’t wait to put on a good show for all the fans.”
