The Sprint Cup Championship Ford 400 is broadcast live on TV and radio to 175 countries and into 24 languages.

  • If you are a Nascar fan you must see this race track were most of the drivers are crowned Nascar champs. 
  • I was at Homestead last year to watch the last step in the Nascar Sprint Cup Championship. It was an incredible experience! The closeness of the stands is very good, even to hear the noise of the machines that release the tire nuts. Unforgettable experience and highly recommended.

  • On Friday nights where the 1/8 is open, the entrance fee for spectators is $10 per person. For racers it's $20 per car. Unlimited passes and of course you receive your receipt of your tines at the end of each race. It can get packed but in this sport, it's not a bad thing. You will see everything from a fully tracked car with nothing but tires and track to shred, to soccer mom vans just trying to have a good time speeding down the track. Each Friday of the month varies in participants. If you enjoy these events, you will enjoy a Friday night here. I do recommend taking your own booze and grub, as the food trucks there can get pricey very fast.
  • Fantastic place to watch 4th of July fireworks. They had all kinds of events for the entire family. Live bands, bounce houses, kiddie rides and great food. The VIP program is really worth it. It provides all you can eat buffet inside the Champions building, and great view of the fireworks from the balcony.
  • NASCAR is a great event, and this is a beautiful facility. I wish we had 2 races here each year like some of the other tracks.
  • Well kept. Organized. Been here many times for work, car launches and professional races.
  • I have been here several times. If you've never been to real track then this will be a great experience. But if you have had a chance to travel a little then you will quickly realize homestead speedway is about average. The facilities are not kept up quite the way they should be. I've worked at the track and have raced there. The staff is very helpful and it's usually laid back. I did the Rusty Wallace experience today. I had fun. I'd recommend it If you love NASCAR.
