“Fast Lane Friday” presented by the Ticket Clinic, formerly known as “Speedway T-n-T,” is returning to Homestead-Miami Speedway this Friday, January 2. Car enthusiasts and guests will be able to enter their street-legal car to compete on the Speedway’s 1/8-mile drag strip from 6 p.m. to midnight.
Law enforcements and advocacy groups long have sought safe alternatives to illegal street racing that plagues South Florida roadways. To combat this dangerous activity, Homestead-Miami Speedway created “Fast Lane Friday”, a legal drag racing event open to all car enthusiasts 18 and older with a valid driver’s license and proof of registration/insurance. Drivers will be able to race their cars against other street-legal cars on the drag strip as many times as they would like throughout the night.
Tickets to race in “Fast Lane Friday” are $20 for participants and $10 for spectators coming to watch the event. Children 12 and younger get in for free, and concessions will be available for purchase. Homestead-Miami Speedway’s cooler policy applies, which allows fans to bring in soft-sided coolers measuring up to 14x14x14 inches, as well as lightweight backpacks.
