DALE EARNHARDT JR. TICKET PACKAGE AVAILABLE FOR
FORD CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND AT HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY
Fans can commemorate Jr.’s final MENCS race with exclusive diecast car
MIAMI- In his 18 seasons as a full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver (2000-2017), Dale Earnhardt Jr. has evolved into an icon in the sport, as evidenced by his 26 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victories, as well as being selected by fans a record 14 consecutive times to receive NASCAR’s prestigious Most Popular Driver Award. He is one of only 30 drivers in NASCAR history to accumulate 26 or more Cup wins, and with two Daytona 500 victories to his credit, he is one of only 11 drivers to capture the checkered the flag in the “Great American Race” on multiple occasions.
At the Ford EcoBoost 400 on November 19, 2017, Earnhardt will be making his final ride as a Cup driver, and Homestead-Miami Speedway is commemorating this historic event with an exclusive ticket package for Ford Championship Weekend. On sale today, this package gives fans the opportunity to take advantage of the limited-quantity offer for $199.
Highlighting this package is an exclusive replica of the car that Earnhardt will drive in his final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This ARC Lionel 1/24 diecast car will have the same paint scheme as his actual car for the 2017 Ford EcoBoost 400, which will be revealed on August 2, 2017 at the Axalta CEC Building on Hendrick Motorsports’ campus.
The ticket package consists of the following:
* 3-Day ticket to the Ford EcoBoost 200 (Nov. 17), Ford EcoBoost 300 (Nov. 18) and Ford EcoBoost 400 (Nov. 19)
* Reserved parking pass
* Access to post-race championship celebration for all three days
* 1/24 diecast car with Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Ford EcoBoost 400 paint scheme
For fans who have previously purchased either a 3-day grandstand ticket package or a premium seat ticket package and want to join Homestead-Miami Speedway in celebrating Earnhardt’s stellar career, a limited supply of the diecast car will be available for purchase.
