Mission Statement

Homestead Drivers Club was founded to open up a new world of experiences to car, and speed enthusiasts, with various activities and special events throughout the year.

Homestead Driving Club welcomes all car brands, drivers, and even race teams. The common denominator for all of our members is their passion for cars, finding their limits on the track, and of course enjoying a lifestyle around their cars.

Homestead-Miami Speedway, located in Homestead, Florida is our home. Throughout the year, the weather is favorable with beautiful sunny days. This makes it a perfect place for long days out on the track all year around.

Cars are just pieces of metal, plastic, and rubber joined together but we give them life. The first requirement to join this club is your passion for cars.
