The Ford EcoBoost 400 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race held at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida. The inaugural race was held in 1999, and has been the final race in the Sprint Cup Series season since 2002, as well as the final race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup since 2004. It is also part of the Ford Championship Weekend, which consists of two other races, the Ford EcoBoost 200 for the Camping World Truck Series and the Ford EcoBoost 300 for the Xfinity Series. The race is contested over 267 laps, 400.5 miles (644.542 km). This race will mark the final NASCAR broadcast for ESPN, ending an eight-year stint covering the sport as well as the final NASCAR broadcast for Allen Bestwick, who has covered the sport since 1986.

The EcoBoost 400 took a major leap in popularity when it became the last race of the NASCAR season, meaning the results of the race had a major impact on the Sprint Cup standings. The winner will be determined by the amount of points that they got on all the ten races. This race comes around on the schedule, some of the world's best drivers convene to race around the track at blazing speeds, leaving fans in awe.

Over the years the raceway has gone through many renovations by widening the turns on the track and raising the banking level for a higher speed of racing. Shortly afterwards, lights were installed to allow night racing for the first time. The renovations were praised by fans. The facility is considered by some to be one of the most beautiful in the country, reflecting the art deco district of downtown Miami with its liberal use of colors such as aqua, purple and silver, among other colors. It has an oval shape of 1.5 mi(2.4 km) with 11 turns and banking Turns 18–20° (progressive) straights 3°.

The Homestead Miami Speedway hosts the Sprint Series Championship weekend, which includes the Ford 400 Sprint Cup Series Race, the Ford 300 Nationwide Series Race, and the Ford 200 Craftsman Truck Series Race. For the past 10 years the Homestead Miami Speedway has been the site to host the Nascar Sprint Cup Championship and crowning the its winner.
