Homestead Miami Speedway
Homestead-Miami Speedway is a race track in Homestead, Florida southwest of Miami. It hosts the final races of the season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series, Camping World Truck Series, and the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series.

The NASCAR races are currently all sponsored by Ford Motor Company, taking the names Ford 400, Ford 300, and Ford 200, respectively.

The speedway was constructed, with the efforts of promoter Ralph Sanchez, as part of a plan to help Homestead rebound after the devastation caused by Hurricane Andrew. Groundbreaking began August 24, 1993, exactly one year after the hurricane. It opened in November 1995 with a NASCAR Busch Series (currently the Nationwide Series) race. In the spring of 1996, the CART series held its first race there.

 
The facility is considered by some to be one of the most beautiful in the country. Though located southwest of Miami, the track reflects the art deco district of Miami Beach with its liberal use of colors such as aqua, purple and silver, among other colors.

Built at an initial cost of $70 million, the project has seen several renovation and expansion projects.


 
Pro Sound was initially contracted to install the Public Address system for the facility. When the Owner was not entirely pleased with the original design they turned to Pro Sound to provide solutions on effective changes that would improve the performance of the system.

Pro Sound has worked with the Speedway for the past 15 years to implement changes, additions and improvements not only with the sound system but also with video and timing & scoring systems. In addition to maintaining the systems, Pro Sound also provides hands-on support for the events.
