Whether seeking a break from the daily grind or relaxing with an extended weekend getaway, the third annual NASCAR Championship Drive festival may have the family activities one is craving. The one-day festival, scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15 in Miami Beach, will feature plenty of fun, food and music, including multi-platinum artist Daughtry and Universal Latino recording artist Frankie J., who will headline the Coca-Cola Racing Family Concert beginning at 6 p.m. The event kicks off Ford Championship Weekend, where NASCAR will crown champions in its three national series, including the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, on Nov. 18 (3 p.m. ET, ESPN) at Homestead-Miami Speedway. To set the stage, a parade in Miami Beach featuring approximately 40 race haulers from the top NASCAR teams will signal the unofficial start of the race weekend beginning at 3:30 p.m. The parade starts in downtown Miami and travels across the MacArthur Causeway and onto Ocean Drive before ending at Lummus Park. Then, South Florida personality and radio host DJ Laz will help fans enjoy the perfect combination of family, food, sports and fun beachside leading into the main musical acts that evening. All activities are FREE to the public and more information can be found at NASCARChampionshipDrive.com. For race ticket information, visit HomesteadMiamiSpeedway.com.
