2013 Car Wash and Ride
(11:00AM-4:00PM) Homestead-Miami Speedway will host its Car Wash and Ride for Charity on Friday, May 17, and Saturday, May 18. The event provides the rare opportunity for participants to drive their car around the same 1.5-mile track that hosts season-ending championship races in NASCAR’s top three series. Proceeds from the event will benefit three charities: Driving for a Cause -- Homestead-Miami Speedway’s charitable arm, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Miami-Dade Sports Commission. For a $20 donation, participants can have their car washed, and then navigate a paced lap around the championship-hosting track. Additional laps on the oval track, which features variable banking ranging from six to 20 degrees, will be available for a $10 donation.
