NASCAR fans, how’d you like to spend an evening enjoying great food, sipping cocktails and hobnobbing with NASCAR drivers, all for a great cause? Championship Taste is an all-new event happening on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, just two days before the Ford Championship Weekend.
Just imagine the excitement as you’ll be at the track itself, sampling cuisine from about 20 different South Florida restaurants and right beside you could be one of your favorite NASCAR drivers, a celebrity chef or even Jon Landau, the award-winning producer of blockbuster movies like “Titanic” and “Avatar.” He’ll be your celebrity host that evening.
Tickets are on sale now at NASCAR.com/Unites or you can order by phone at 704-348-9685. Prices range from $50 to $100 per person. All proceeds benefit the NASCAR Foundation’s Speediatrics program at Homestead Hospital. This is where I take my own kids when they’re sick or injured (we’ve been here so many times, I’m the mayor on Foursquare). It’s a wonderful facility with outstanding doctors and nurses.
