After the devastation of Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the City of Homestead developed and established a state-of-the-art race track that would forever change the economy of Homestead, Greater Miami, and the entire South Florida region. Homestead-Miami Speedway’s Driving for a Cause Foundation is committed to making a lasting impact on the community by raising funds to support charitable programs and initiatives in South Florida that focus on education and youth development. Established in August 2012 on the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, Driving for a Cause offers a number of ways for you to become involved through volunteerism or event fund-raising activities.
