The Ford Hall of Fans finalists have been selected and you could join them in Miami!

Fans have voted, selecting six outstanding NASCAR super fans from 16 finalists – and more than 8,000 entries! After two tough weeks of vying for the public’s votes, the finalists will now travel to Miami and compete for induction in the inaugural class of the Ford Hall of Fans, at Ford Championship Weekend.

Enter the Ford Hall of Fans Sweepstakes between now and Nov. 5 for the chance to watch them compete in Miami. Trip includes:

  • A five-day, four-night, all-expenses-paid trip to Miami for Ford Championship Weekend with premium hotel accommodations
  • $750 gift card for spending money
  • Round-trip airfare for you and a guest included

While you enjoy the VIP treatment, the Top 6 Finalists will test their NASCAR skills in four different challenges at the track. Ford drivers will help judge the contests – as well as lend their expertise to the competitors. The challenges will test the finalists’ NASCAR prowess, creativity, originality and NASCAR knowledge.
