History

Homestead-Miami Speedway is a 1.5-mile oval racetrack in Homestead, Florida. The track hosts the final race of the NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series, and Truck Series. The facility opened in 1995, and it holds a capacity of 55,000.

Since opening, Homestead-Miami Speedway has undergone several renovations. In 1996, the track was reconfigured slightly to increase speed and make it easier for cars to pass one another. A year later, a $8.2 million project changed the turns from rectangular to oval shaped. In 2003, the track was reconfigured yet again this time increasing the turns’ banking. A couple of years later, lights were added to the track in 2005.

In addition to hosting NASCAR racing, the Homestead-Miami Speedway has also hosted IndyCar, the Rolex Sports Car Series, and FIA GT Championships in the past.
