Wood Brothers Head to Homestead for the Final Race of 2009

The Wood Brothers and their #21 Motorcraft Ford Fusion, driven by former NASCAR champion Bill Elliott, head to Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend for the final race of the season – the Ford 400. The 1.5 mile speedway began holding Sprint Cup races in 1999 and underwent significant changes in 2003 when steeper, progressive banking was added in the turns.

The Wood Brothers have earned 2 top ten finishes at Homestead while Bill Elliott has earned 1 pole and 3 top 10 finishes – winning the event in 2001.

During last year’s race, the Wood Brothers and Elliott put together their best finish of the year – 12th. The team hopes to build on last year’s performance.

The cars take to the track on Friday with practice and qualifying. Two practices are scheduled for Saturday with racing action set to begin at 3:15 pm on Sunday. Live race coverage begins at 2:30 pm on ABC.
