Miami Beach, Fla. – As the NASCAR Sprint Cup series concludes, the annual sailfish season begins – both in Miami Beach. Scheduled in conjunction with the final race of the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, Sailfish Cup is geared toward race fans and anglers alike to enjoy beautiful South Beach. The Second Annual Sailfish Cup, with a first-year payout of over $500,000, will be held at the Miami Beach Marina November 10-12.
Produced by Executive Adventures, parent company to the World Sailfish Championship held annually in Key West, Florida, Sailfish Cup has fulfilled a long-standing need for a high caliber sailfish tournament in Miami.
As soon as the green flag waves, participants are free to dive into all the experiences the tournament offers, including VIP parties, gourmet food, top-shelf open bars, and of course, two days of competitive fishing. The checkered flag concludes the tournament with an awards dinner with live and silent auctions Thursday evening hosted by Mike Helton, president of NASCAR. The auctions will feature NASCAR memorabilia and other one-of-a-kind items. All proceeds will benefit The NASCAR Foundation and Speedatrics at Homestead Hospital. The NASCAR Foundation embodies the compassion of the NASCAR Family and its commitment to serving communities. The NASCAR Foundation will use the strength of the sport and its people to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.
