What they are saying about the "new" Homestead-Miami Speedway...

1999 NASCAR Winston Cup Champion Dale Jarrett:

"The reconfiguration of the track with additional and variable banking at Homestead-Miami Speedway is great news. It should provide for great side-by-side racing and some real excitement for all the race fans who come out to Ford Championship Weekend this November."

NASCAR Winston Cup Driver Ricky Rudd:

"I always thought that it would be perfect to have variable degrees of banking. I'm real excited about the plans that are in place at Homestead-Miami Speedway with the new banking. It's going to lend itself to great side-by-side racing and I'm really looking forward to racing on the new track."

Four-Time NASCAR Winston Cup Champion Jeff Gordon:

"The added banking at Homestead-Miami Speedway is exactly what we've been waiting for. This has always been one of the finest facilities in the country, and now with the added banking in the turns, the track and the racing should be more exciting than ever."

NASCAR Busch Series Driver Carlos Contreras:

"The new banking at Homestead-Miami Speedway will make it easier for the drivers to find the ideal set-up for the car, and will also enable us to race side-by-side throughout the whole track, which before wasn't possible because the track was to flat along the curves. Homestead-Miami Speedway is one of my favorite tracks, and I believe it is that of many other drivers in NASCAR. For us drivers it's going to be better than ever to come here this November, but who will really benefit from this new banking are the fans."

William O. Cullom, President, Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce:

"I commend Homestead-Miami Speedway and Curtis Gray for their commitment toward this major re-configuration project. This huge investment by the Speedway is an outstanding example of a sports entity listening and responding to the needs of its fan base. The track re-configuration will surely make November's Ford Championship Weekend an even bigger event for all of South Florida. Kudos to Homestead-Miami Speedway."
