We hope that everyone has been able to say safe during this challenging period, as we all eagerly anticipate returning to some semblance of normalcy.
Last week, it was announced that our 2020 NASCAR race weekend, originally slated to be run March 20-22, has now been rescheduled for June 13-14. Over the course of the two days, we will host four races, highlighted by the NASCAR Cup Series Dixie Vodka 400 on Sunday, June 14. A pair of NASCAR Xfinity Series races and a NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race will take place during the course of the weekend as well, the first time in our track’s history that we will have hosted four NASCAR races in the same weekend.
As an industry, we are intent on running every points race so that our sport can remain as strong as ever. As a result, and in accordance with the CDC and public health guidelines, NASCAR’s current schedule of events will now be held without fans in attendance, including the June weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
While we are disappointed the current situation will not permit our fans to join us for our 25th anniversary, we encourage you to be safe, enjoy the four races from the comfort of your homes, and continue practicing the recommendations from the CDC until circumstances allow for all of us to be together again.
As we commemorate the 25th anniversary of Homestead-Miami Speedway, it’s hard not to think that our venue is symbolic of a community banding together and overcoming a catastrophic force of nature – Hurricane Andrew. Similar to that event more than 25 years ago, we will get through this as well, and be stronger as a result. Now, we look forward to playing an integral role in the return of professional sports to South Florida.
We thank you for being a loyal fan and follower of our track and NASCAR, and look forward to seeing you at Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2021.
Homestead-Miami Speedway President
