Message from Track President Al Garcia
March 20-22 was supposed to be the start of a special weekend for all of us – the Dixie Vodka 400 NASCAR weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It was slated to be a time where all of you could enjoy three days of thrilling racing, all of the amenities that our staff has worked so diligently to provide, and to commemorate the 25th anniversary of our beloved facility. We had a lot of fun things in store.
While we are in the midst of a unique time in our society, many of our everyday rituals have been curtailed for the time being, our race weekend included. We recognize the seriousness of what is taking place, and understand that it transcends the sports world.
The health and safety of our fans is first and foremost, and we urge everyone to stay safe and follow guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, as well as your local and state authorities. It is our hope that we can return to racing soon, as we become one small part of a return to normalcy. We are working with NASCAR to identify a spot on the calendar when we can host the Dixie Vodka 400 weekend when the time is appropriate.
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.
We thank you for being a loyal fan and follower of our track and NASCAR, and look forward to seeing you soon.
