Homestead Miami Speedway is a racing track situated in Homestead, Florida. The track has a few arrangements. From 2002 to 2019, Homestead–Miami Speedway had facilitated the last race of the season altogether three of NASCAR’s arrangement.
The races as of now have the names Dixie Vodka 400, Contender Boats 250, and Baptist Health 200, individually.
It opened in November 1995 with a NASCAR Busch Series race, the last race of that season. The Busch Series would keep on holding its season-finishing races at Homestead; in 2002 NASCAR’s Winston Cup Series and Craftsman Truck Series would likewise hold their season-finishing races at Homestead also. From 2002 to 2019, NASCAR advertised the season-finishing Homestead races as Ford Championship Weekend.
In 1996, the track executives endeavored to address the issues by enlarging the covers of the turns by as much as 24 feet. The film Super Speedway was shot at the speedway before the track was reconfigured to an oval. In the mid-year of 1997, a $8.2 million reconfiguration project changed the turns from a square shape to a customary, nonstop turn oval.
In 2003, the track was reconfigured. The turns were changed from flat to steep banking. In 2005, lights were introduced to permit night racing. The redesigns were lauded by fans, and the track has created various close battles, including 2005’s last-lap fight between Greg Biffle and Mark Martin.
Greg Biffle and Tony Stewart have the most wins on the track. Both have won 3 races.
William Byron snapped the streak of first-time NASCAR Cup Series race winners when he won Sunday’s Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
He led a race-high 102 of 267 laps, including the final 58 laps en route to his second career victory.
