Homestead Miami Speedway was actually stared as an idea to help Dade county recover after Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Track construction began exactly one year after the storm. This track has had a few facelifts since it was originally constructed and now host's NASCARS top three series final events for the season. Homestead was first laid out like the Indianapolis Motor speedway with four distinct flat corners and two short chutes at each end of the track. In 1996 the track changed the corner configuration to a continuous turn oval and in 2003 changed the banking from a flat oval to steep variable banking oval.
