Homestead-Miami Speedway Announces Ford EcoBoost 400 Sell Out

For the fifth straight year, fans will fill the grandstands at Homestead-Miami Speedway to witness the grand spectacle of NASCAR’s Ford EcoBoost 400. Track officials announced Saturday afternoon, Nov. 17, grandstands for today’s season finale at HMS are sold out.

“Ford Championship Weekend continues to be one of the biggest events in all of sports,” said HMS President Matthew Beecher in a release announcing the move. “It has grown in stature over the last 17 years to become the monumental weekend that it is today.

“There’s so many intriguing storylines with Ford Championship Weekend every year as we crown champions in each of NASCAR’s three series. But we also offer other tremendous entertainment and family activities to ensure that we provide our crowd with an entire weekend of action, both on and off the track.”

This is the fifth straight sellout for this race and second straight this season. The grandstands were packed full last weekend at ISM Raceway for NASCAR’s Round of 8 finale which saw Kyle Busch secure his spot in the Championship 4. Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. also joined Busch in punching their tickets to Homestead while Joey Logano punched his with a victory at Martinsville a few weeks ago.

Coverage of the Ford EcoBoost 400 kicks off at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC. MRN and SiriusXM Channel 90 will provide radio coverage.

Take enough seats out and anything can be a sell out.

I wonder how many free tickets were given to Joe’s Pizza & Computer Repair?

Ken

What do they call a sell-out? 50-percent of the seats?

David Edwards

lots of corporate “stakeholders” needed seats.

Robert

Sure saw a lot of empty seats for a so called sellout race.

Todd

Not even close to sold out. Anyone watching on TV could see totally empty sections in turn 4
