Thank You, Race Fans


From all of us here at Homestead-Miami Speedway, we want to thank you for yet another outstanding Ford Championship Weekend. Without you, this new Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup format and the Championship Round would not have been possible, and we are thrilled that you were here to witness Kevin Harvick’s first win at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship title.

We hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather, and all of the exciting and fun fan areas that Homestead-Miami Speedway had to offer. With the spectacle being broadcast to more than 200 countries in 24 languages, fans from around the world were able to watch the thrilling racing with you this past Sunday at the Ford EcoBoost 400.

History was made once again at Homestead-Miami Speedway, as three new champions were crowned. Matt Crafton became the first back-to-back NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion on Friday night. Chase Elliott claimed the title as the youngest Champion in a NASCAR National Series on Saturday. And it all concluded with the crowning of a new NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion, and Ford EcoBoost 400 winner, Kevin Harvick.

We also want to thank you for making your way to the frontstretch for our amazing pre-race show. Between Jason Aldean, DJ Irie, Caleb Johnson and the flyover, Homestead-Miami Speedway was the place to be in South Florida on Sunday. Dozens of celebrities descended on Homestead-Miami Speedway for the Ford EcoBoost 400, including NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan, 2014 American Idol winner Caleb Johnson, legendary voice of the UFC Bruce Buffer, and rapper and South Florida native Flo Rida, and we hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as they did.

Again, thank you for making the 2014 Ford Championship Weekend a success. Without you, this weekend wouldn’t be possible, and we look forward to the future and hosting the 2015 Ford Championship Weekend, November 20-22, 2015. Have a great holiday season.
