Ford Championship Weekend

The Ford Championship Weekend is the season final weekend of the three top division of NASCAR. The Ford Motor Company is the main sponsor of the races this weekend. It takes place at the Homestead -Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida.

The Championship Weekend arose when NASCAR decided to convert in 2002, to stage all their season final race to a weekend at a race track. Previously only ended the season of the NASCAR Nationwide Series in Homestead, Miami. The former Winston Cup, today's Sprint Cup, ended his season at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series since its inception in the western United States on routes such as the Phoenix International Raceway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway or California Speedway.

The Championship Weekend kicks off on Friday with the Ford 200 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, then continues on Saturday with the Ford 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series and ends with the grand finale of the Chase for the Sprint Cup, the Ford 400 on Sunday. After each of these races, a ceremony will be held in which the champion of each series will be announced. If a driver already safe from the season finale of the title in a series have such as Matt Kenseth 2003 Winston Cup or Kevin Harvick 2006 in the Nationwide Series, then it will be a short, informal ceremony.

In all previous races except two, managed the one who was leading a series of points before Championship Weekend, to win the championship. Brendan Gaughan lost his lead in the overall standings when he had to retire in 2003 because of an accident in the Ford 200 of the year. Travis Kvapil then won the championship. In Ford 200 2007 Mike Skinner lost to tire problems his lead in the overall standings to Ron Hornaday Jr., after he has almost all season long led the drivers' championship. Ron Hornaday Jr. won the championship.
