- Homestead-Miami Speedway is a 1.5 mile oval and relatively steeply banked. NASCAR speedway’s are race tracks that are over 1 mile and not more than 2 miles in length. With the exception of Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Pocono Raceway which are both 2.50 miles. We keep them classified in the Speedway track type due to their unique configurations and relatively flat banking in the turns. So look at the results for the speedways in our ON Pit Row Stats, but when looking at how well a driver does at Homestead-Miami, also consider their performance at Bristol, Las Vegas, Dover & Darlington because of their steep banking.
