On Saturday, August 17, more than 300 cars completed approximately 3,000 laps during Homestead-Miami Speedway’s annual Give Back at the Track charity event. Car enthusiasts, racing fans, and casual drivers made charitable donations to the Speedway and were provided with the thrill of a lifetime – running laps around the same 1.5-mile oval that plays hosts to NASCAR’s championships. The event featured local car clubs who drove exotic and vintage cars such as classic Ford Mustangs, Dodge Vipers, and Volkswagens from the 1960s and ‘70s. 

Proceeds from the event benefited Homestead-Miami Speedway’s charitable outreach program, Driving for a Cause, which makes an impact on the community by raising funds to support education and youth development programs and initiatives in South Florida. This year, roughly $10,000 was raised for the program. In addition to driving the track, participants also donated non-perishable foods to South Florida’s local food bank, Farm Share.

We doubled last year's donations, which is truly incredible. We love serving the community," said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Al Garcia. “We had such a great turnout in August and we are excited for September's Give Back at the Track charity event!”

Homestead-Miami Speedway will be giving South Florida another opportunity to run laps around the track. The Speedway will host a second Give Back at the Track event on Saturday, September 21 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., giving the community another opportunity to feel the thrill of racing while contributing to philanthropic endeavors.
