Corner Worker (Event Staff)
Homestead-Miami Speedway has been open since 1995 following an initiative to spur economic recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The Speedway, which was founded by Miami businessman, racing enthusiast and philanthropist Ralph Sanchez, is a 650-acre facility that features a 1.5-mile oval and 2.21-mile road course. The Speedway hosts on-track events nearly 300 days per year and generates more than $301 million annually for the region. NASCAR crowned champions in all three of its national series at Homestead-Miami Speedway for 18 straight years (2002-19). In 2023, the Speedway hosts the second race in the Round of 8 of the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs on Sunday, Oct. 22. In August of 2022, Homestead-Miami Speedway unveiled a new, colorfully designed logo that showcases the venue’s sense of place and incredible competition while incorporating all what South Florida has to offer from the vibrancy of South Beach to the tranquility of the Keys. Using a combination of pink, blue, yellow, light and dark turquoise – colors specific to the culture of South Florida - the new Homestead-Miami Speedway highlights regional and cultural flair of color, speed and intense, off-the chart racing that is unique to Miami.
