Grandstand seating for Sprint Cup finale sold out

1 Comment

Homestead-Miami Speedway has announced that grandstand seating for Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series season finale is sold out.

The track says a “limited number” of tickets in the infield Pit Road Cabanas and in the FanVision Fan Zone remain.

The Ford EcoBoost 400 is set for 2:30 p.m. ET on Sunday on NBC.

“Ford Championship Weekend continues to grow in stature each year, and having sold out the Ford EcoBoost 400 three years in a row is a testament to that,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer in a press release. “Not only do we have world class racing with Joey Logano, Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards competing for a championship amongst a full field of drivers, but we also offer outstanding entertainment as well, including the pre-race concert by The Band Perry. Championship weekend should provide tremendous excitement for the entire family.”

The race will pit Logano, Busch, Johnson and Edwards against each other for the championship and is the last Sprint Cup start by three-time champion Tony Stewart.

NASCAR America: Is there cause for concern with Jimmie Johnson’s performance thus far?

It’s no secret that Jimmie Johnson is off to a slow start in 2017.

The defending and seven-time NASCAR Cup champion has a starting average of 21.8 and a finishing average of 18.8 in the first five races of this season.

He has just one top-10 finish (ninth at Phoenix), along with 34th at Daytona, 19th at Atlanta, 11th at Las Vegas and 21st Sunday at Fontana.

And let’s not forget he’s 17th in the NASCAR Cup standings heading to one of his strongest tracks, Martinsville Speedway, this Sunday.

On Monday’s edition of NASCAR America, we discussed this: After such a slow start to the season, is there a cause for concern over Johnson’s performance?

Kyle Larson‘s spectacular weekend at Auto Club Speedway — winning both Saturday’s Xfinity Series race and Sunday’s Auto Club 400 NASCAR Cup event — left him feeling good.

But shortly upon exiting the facility, Larson and several others were involved in a fender-bender right outside the Speedway. Larson was a passenger, not the driver.

No one was injured, Larson tweeted.

But somehow, isn’t that strange fate?
