Jews at a NASCAR Race?   

We're hoping to plan an outing to the NASCAR Championship Race at Homestead Motor Speedway on Sunday, November 17, 2019. 

We need your help to determine whether we will have enough participation to make the trip possible. Below is some information about the race, and here is a link to the survey.

The "Ford Ecoboost 400" at Homestead Motor Speedway has been NASCAR's championship race since 2002. It is a 400-mile, 267 lap race that is truly the Super Bowl of NASCAR. This year's race will be Miami's last time hosting the Championship. Next season's Ecoboost 400 will be held in March and the November championship race will move to Avondale, Arizona.

We have been offered premium seats with a very generous discount built in for our group.

Adults | Regular price: $105 | Our price: $69
Kids 12 & under | Regular price: $52 | Our price: $49

Provide pre-race access to the pit area; lots of fun!
Regular price: $50 | Our price: $40

Click here to answer 5 quick questions to help us plan this outing!


  • It's family-friendly
  • There's so much to do at the track; it's more like an all-day festival than a sporting event.
  • Don't believe what the comedians say; it's more than just a bunch of left turns! No spectator sport is as exciting and adrenaline-packed as a NASCAR race. That's why races attract more spectators than any other sport in America!
