The thing about the Homestead track is that the straightaway is right in front of the drivers' stand while the winding infield section is away from you (opposite of what we are use to running mentally). Better gear your car right or you will be stretching the rod in your engine.

Man, what a great time enjoying all the good food and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday!

The track is back together after the big NASCAR weekend at Miami Homestead Speedway. All the barriers and barricades needed to be removed when NASCAR raced at the facility. Our area is used by the food and beverage vendors for resupplying their assorted food stalls. Wow! what a mess they leave. I am sure Johnny has been busy getting everything back to normal so we will have a great facility for racing again.

Entries have been trickling in. I must say this is going to be the cream of the crop with some of the best GT racers already entered. We have been in contact with several others that will be attending who have not entered yet but have assured us they are coming to race.

So far we have many car brands represented including Serpent, Team C, Xray, OFNA and Mugen.

GT Nation this is one race you do not want to miss!

Those poor 5 ports will be straining down that long straight. The guys put on a good event out there so this should be a fun race.

That's where the mini nitrous bottle hidden in the receiver box comes into play.

The track is Huge and AWESOME!! You should try and make the trip with us.
The straight comes off a chicane and sharp horse shoe, (turns 11,12,&13) your already on full power as soon as you make the apex on turn 13!!

And lets not forget the elevation changes turns (2-8)!!
