(Homestead, Florida) In the summer of 2017, Kartsport North America took control of Homestead Karting, home to such premier events as the Florida Winter Tour, the South Florida Rmax Challenge, WKA Regionals, and the Easykart Grand Nationals. They would create AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex, a venue with a proven track record of organizing, hosting, and managing some of the most competitive kart racing in North America and is now available to the general public.
The track itself is located on the Homestead Miami-Speedway property, host to the final race of the season in all three of NASCAR‘s series: the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series, and the Camping World Truck Series since 2002.
The team promised to open, just in time for the season-ending NASCAR race to an overwhelming response of an audience in the thousands. The final touch to this incredible transformation came in the form of lighting via the Effinion Aquarius LED fixtures from LED Source. These new modern fixtures cut power utilization by more than 60% over Metal Halide “old fashioned” racetrack lighting with the cost WELL below the owners expected spending when embarking on this journey to light the track with LED.
The Effinion Aquarius fixture is excellent for outdoor area/stadium lighting, providing significant energy and maintenance savings while improving lighting performance. The high light output is ideal as a high mounting solution with its clean slim profile, perfect for minimizing wind load. Corrosion resistant with over 20 optical lenses for virtually any application, the Aquarius offers an adjustable mounting arm that allows optimal positioning. With features such as immediate on/off capabilities these fixtures rival competitors packages costing several times as much all with a FULL 10-year Warranty, Financing Options, and more!
No racetrack is complete without a well-lit track for high performance racing. It’s Effinion’s high standards that set it apart!
