Homestead-Miami Chase Activity

Published on 01/18/2012

Activity Overview

Homestead-Miami Speedway has been rebuilt in different configurations more often than any other track on the NASCAR circuit. In 2003 the track was rebuilt once more but with the current progressive 18 to 20 degree banking allowing for multi-groove racing and more passing. In this activity you will investigate turn radii and banking as part of the drive path around this track. Drivers have to decide if it is better to go faster or take the shortest path. Can you decide?
