Defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski, five-time champion Jimmie Johnson, four-time champion and last year's race winner Jeff Gordon, three-time champion Tony Stewart, and Miami's own Juan Pablo Montoya are among the top drivers scheduled to compete.  They will race door-to-door around the 1.5-mile variable banked Homestead-Miami Speedway oval in the Ford EcoBoost 400 on Nov. 17.

"It was great to see Brad Keselowski win the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship for legendary team owner Roger Penske last year," said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. "South Florida will witness another dramatic conclusion to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase for the Sprint Cup, as well as the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series seasons.  When you add in the big-event atmosphere and the fact that it's three-straight series-crowning championship finales on one of the most 'racy' tracks, it's a 'can't miss' weekend."

Homestead-Miami Speedway annually produces one of the most thrilling races given the track's multiple lines of racing on its 1.5-mile banked oval.  Last year's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship saw 19 lead changes an average race speed of more than 142 mph.  In 2011, the 400-mile contest had a race record 26 lead changes.
