2009 Ford 400

The 2009 Ford 400 took place on November 22, 2009, at the 1.5 miles (2.4 km) Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida near Miami, and was the final race of the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup season and the 2000s decade.

It was telecast by ABC, as well as broadcast on radio by Motor Racing Network (over-the-air/terrestrial) and Sirius XM Radio (satellite). The race served as the finale for the 2009 Chase for the Sprint Cup, as the driver from among twelve qualifiers that followed the Chevy Rock & Roll 400 in September in Henrico County, Virginia with the most total points at the end of the race was declared the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion. The race also marked the culmination of Ford Championship Weekend, which included the Camping World Truck Series Ford 200 on Friday night and the Nationwide Series Ford 300 Saturday evening.

A crowd of 70,000 spectators would witness this 189-minute spectacle; the margin between the winner and the second-place driver was 2.6 seconds. The average green flag run was approximately 26 laps while almost 12% of the race was run under a caution flag.[1] Jimmie Johnson would earn his fourth NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship at this race; a significant accomplishment that would acquire him more championships than Cale Yarborough.
