If you’re a critic of NASCAR’s new format of the Chase for the Sprint Cup, you’re in a shrinking minority.
Fans have really begun to embrace the elimination format – and it couldn’t come at a better time, because Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400 Sprint Cup season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway has become the hottest ticket in South Florida.
If you haven’t gotten your ticket by now, sadly, you’re out of luck.
On the heels of last Sunday’s sellout at Phoenix International Raceway comes Thursday’s news Sunday’s Sprint Cup championship deciding race is a complete sellout.
According to a report by The Associated Press, HMS track president Matthew Becherer announced that all grandstand and premium seating has been sold out at the track, which seats approximately 65,000.
Seats are still available for Friday night’s championship deciding race in the Camping World Truck Series, as well as Saturday afternoon’s Nationwide Series race.
Defending champ Matt Crafton and Ryan Blaney are the only two drivers left in the running for the Truck title.
Chase Elliott clinched the NNS championship last weekend at Phoenix.
