Come for the big NASCAR three-day weekend of Friday November 17 through Sunday November 19 at the Homestead Miami Speedway. You’ll see three NASCAR Championships in one weekend at this venue, and it doesn’t get any better than that!

NASCAR stands for National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing and is second only to the NFL for sports as far as television viewers and U.S. fans. Internationally, it has a big name as well and viewers in more than 150 countries watch NASCAR races. NASCAR was founded in 1948 as a family-owned and operated business and remains that way today. It oversees multiple auto-racing events by sanctioning and governing their operation.
Different Levels of Professional Competition
The highest level of professional NASCAR competition is the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, which has 36 races that span over 10 months. Jimmie Johnson won the Cup five consecutive times (seven times total) and is the only racecar driver to have done that.
The NASCAR XFINITY Series is the second highest level of professional competition and in 2016, Daniel Suárez won the championship title. Typically, the season runs a few races shorter than the Monster Energy Cup Series.
The Camping World Truck Series is the third NASCAR division and modified pickup trucks race in this division. Johnny Sauter was the 2016 champion. The main difference in this series’ format is that eight instead of 12 drivers qualify for the Chase with only two drivers (instead of four in XFINITY Series) being eliminated in preliminary rounds. The final race is among four drivers (same as XFINITY).
