Homestead-Miami Speedway Adds Temporary Seating for the Season-Ending NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Ford 400

(September 13, 2006) -- Due to overwhelming demand for additional tickets to the season-ending NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Ford 400, Homestead-Miami Speedway today announced its plans to strategically construct temporary grandstand seating near the action-packed Turn Four of the speedway allowing more fans to attend South Florida's 'must-see' annual event. The temporary, end-of-the-season seating addition will be for this year only.

Beginning Saturday, September 16 at 9:00 a.m., sports fans can secure their tickets by calling toll-free at 1-866-409-RACE, or online at homesteadmiamispeedway.com or racetickets.com.

Catapulted by the success of the 'Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup' and its position as a series championship event, this year's season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway experienced [its] earliest race sell-out ever, nearly five months prior to the waving of the green flag in November.

"The NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Ford 400 continues to be the toughest annual sports ticket in South Florida," said track president Curtis Gray. "Since we announced a sell-out in June, there have been non-stop ticket requests from passionate sports fans in South Florida and across the country flooding our ticket office for this 'must-see' national championship event. We're excited that we can help meet such a strong demand."

Great seats are still available for the remainder of Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway including the season-finales for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck and Busch Series.

The Chase for The NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series returns to Homestead-Miami Speedway November 17-19 as the world's best drivers take their shot at becoming the 2006 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Champion. All three NASCAR Series, the Craftsman Truck, Busch, and NEXTEL Cup will crown champions under the lights during Ford Championship Weekend. To purchase tickets to events at HMS, or for more information, log onto www.homesteadmiamispeedway.com or call the HMS ticket hotline at 1-866-409-RACE.

The lasting NASCAR legacy after Dale Earnhardt’s death

On February 18, 2001, seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt – the fearless ‘Intimidator’ – was in his element at Daytona International Speedway. While his own DEI team’s cars ran 1-2 towards the finish line, his famed #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo was playing rear gunner to block any late runs from the chasing pack. As the cars tore through Turns 3 and 4 on that fateful final lap, Earnhardt maintained the strongarm tactics that encapsulated his persona… but his actions in those moments sadly proved to be his last.
