HOMESTEAD (CBSMiami) — NASCAR fans can already start planning for November’s championships now that tickets go on sale Thursday.
Homestead-Miami Speedway will host the NASCAR’s Championship-crowning races in all three of its premier series for the 13th consecutive year.
The championship will start on Friday, November 14th and run through Sunday, November 16th.
General seating tickets start at $45 and stretch to $120 each.
While it’s another year for NASCAR, the stakes will be higher for the 2014 Ford EcoBoost 400.
Back in January, NASCAR announced its new playoff system which features eliminations after the third, sixth and ninth races in the 10-race Chase For The Sprint Cup.
Once the races begin at Chicagoland Speedway, any driver who wins a chase will advance to the next round of elimination playoffs.
Starting with 16 drivers, four will be eliminated based on their points after each three rounds, until the final four drivers make it to the starting line of the championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Alongside a full 43-car field, they will race for the title in November.
“This will be the most exciting NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in the 13-year history of Ford Championship Weekend,” Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer said. “The drama surrounding who will be crowned as the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion will be at an all-time high.”
