Nascar Dixie Vodka 400 Weekend

Nascar Dixie Vodka 400 Weekend

Oct 23, 2022
Starting: 9:00 AM

NASCAR in South Florida has shifted gears

For the past 18 years, picturesque Homestead-Miami Speedway was the exciting scene for NASCAR’s year-ending Cup Series championship in November. No longer will racing fans have to wait until Thanksgiving to sample the greatest NASCAR drivers in the world.

Dixie Vodka 400

New details for this year's event to follow soon.

Start your engines and come watch as 40 of NASCAR’s best vie for this prestigious Dixie Vodka 400 title. Defending NASCAR Cup Series champ Kyle Busch, who won the Cup Series Race finale here, will lead a star-studded field, including former Cup Series champions: Kevin Harvick (2014), Martin Truex Jr. (2017), and Joey Logano (2018). They will be challenged by one of the strongest rookie classes in years, headed by Christopher Bell, Tyler Reddick, and Cole Custer.

The Dixie winner will take home the coveted trophy, plus a 25-foot Contender Bay sports-fishing boat, and most significantly, a berth in the coveted 16-driver field in the season-ending NASCAR Cup Series Championship now located at the Phoenix (Arizona) Raceway in November.

“Our move to a March race aligns with the vision of our late founder, Ralph Sanchez, who was responsible for bringing professional auto racing to Miami with the Miami Grand Prix in 1983,’’ Homestead-Miami Speedway track president Al Garcia said.

“In the early years of both professional racing in Miami and at Homestead-Miami Speedway, spring was when some of the biggest events were run. In a way, we are returning to our roots. The competition is going to be tremendous, and we feel that with all the new amenities we have rolled out over the past two years, our fans will be equally excited with everything that there is to do before and after the races.”

NASCAR Xfinity Series

Smell the aroma of burning rubber and gasoline as NASCAR’s next generation of stars battle over 300 breathtaking miles that the whole family can enjoy in the 2020Census.gov 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Sunday, October 23.

As if there were not enough incentive for victory, this race will serve as the qualifier for the 2020 Dash for Cash. The race will not be limited to just the young guns as iconic stock car racer Dale Earnhardt Jr., whose last race in the Cup Series came to Homestead in 2017, will shift from the broadcast booth to the driver’s seat. The semi-retired Earnhardt Jr., is a five-time NASCAR Xfinity Series champion, with his last crown coming in 2018.

Both Earnhardt Jr. and Johnson, as well as Chase Elliott will be available for meet-and-greet sessions intertwined with elite ticket packages.

NASCAR RV & Outdoors Truck Series

For those racing fans who only come out to party at night, the three-day Dixie Vodka 400 weekend kicks off Friday evening, March 20 with the Diabetes Can Break Your Heart 200 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Race.

The sports’ Next-Gen upstarts will look to pad their resumes in this fun-filled event. Defending Truck Series champion Matt Crafton leads the field and he will be joined by Busch, the defending Cup Series champion, who will look to teach the youngsters some racing respect. Also joining the fray will be young veteran Kyle Larson, a collaborator with Harvick, who has offered a $50,000 bounty to any full-time Cup driver able to beat Busch.

More to NASCAR Than Just Races

For the first time in NASCAR history, spring breakers can take their party to Homestead where NASCAR’s first-ever Infield Beach Party at a 20,000-square foot Ally Beach is open to all guests, just inside of Turn 3’s 7-acre lake.

Where else besides Homestead-Miami Speedway can the entire family relax on a beach complete with watercrafts and swimming while watching cars zip by in excess of 180 mph?

Revelers 21 and over can also hang out at the specially designed double-decked container bar where they can eat, drink and dance to country-western bands with friends while perched on top of a unique vantage point. Of course, there will be plenty of Lyft drivers waiting for their calls after the race. Even better news: General Parking is free!

There will be amenities aplenty on the refurbished grounds that will make South Floridians and out-of-towners feel as if they were in the middle of Little Havana, South Beach or Key West.

So start your engines, set your GPS and spring toward the Homestead-Miami Speedway to witness the most exciting weekend of the year.
