Anyone who has always longed to drive on a state-of-the-art racetrack will find Homestead Miami Speedway a great racetrack to race on. It offers gradual banking and multiple racing lanes, allowing the driver to run low, middle, or high - wherever the car handles best - but it is also a challenging track that demands the driver’s attention. The racetrack’s banking increases to a maximum of 20° in the turns, using an innovative variable-degree banking system that increases the degree of banking progressively from the bottom to the top of each turn. At each turn’s midpoint, there is 18° banking at the bottom, 19° in the middle, and 20° at the top. This variable banking system is designed to create three competitive racing grooves around the track. The system allows drivers to find a variety of places where they can make their cars work.


“The big difference at Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure is that you learn how to draft, slingshot past and leave the competition-just as Jarrett and his buddies do 36 weeks a year.”

Description of Homestead, Florida:

The city of Homestead is located 35 miles southwest of Miami and 25 miles northeast of Key Largo, with Biscayne National Park on its east and Everglades National Park on its west. It got its name from the fact that it ran through an area designated for homesteading in the early 1900s. Situated at the entrance to the Florida Keys, Homestead offers a wealth of activities for the whole family, including an underwater park and alligator farm and water sports such as scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, fishing, and glass-bottom boat rides at Biscayne Bay National Park. The clear, shallow waters, tranquil lagoons, and sandy beaches are enjoyable and provide a varied landscape. Nearby Miami offers an abundance of international tourist attractions.

History

Homestead-Miami Speedway is one of the most beautiful racetracks in the country, with its art deco flavor and Caribbean color scheme that give it a South Beach look. The racetrack has been reconfigured twice, in 1996 and 2003, and lights were installed to allow night racing. The $12 million 2003 transformation was the most technologically advanced track reconfiguration project in motorsports history, changing the racetrack from a flat 6° track to a computer-designed 18°-20° track with its variably banked turns. Each change in the configuration has introduced new challenges and excitement. Homestead-Miami Speedway has hosted racing in the Championship Auto Racing Teams and Indy Racing League Series, in addition to hosting races in all three of NASCAR’s top series. The speedway also has amenities designed to provide greater comfort and convenience for fans, such as raised grandstands for better viewing of the races.
