The final race of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs takes place this Sunday (Nov. 19, 2017) at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida. Joining the auto racing excitement that weekend will be free Bellator MMA fights for the fans live in attendance.

First, though, fans will have a chance to meet and get autographs from Dan Henderson and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson the day prior (Sat., Nov. 18, 2017) from 1 to 2 p.m. ET via the Monster Energy Fan Zone on the North side of the track. Admission to the event is free and open to fans.

On race day (prior to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Ford EcoBoost 400 race), a four-fight card will be available starting at 11:30 a.m. ET in the same Monster Energy Fan Zone on the North side, also free for all patrons of the event. The non-televised action available is listed below:

Featherweight: Matt Wagy (10-4) vs. Kester Mark (5-4)
Middleweight: Johnny Eblen (2-0) vs. Emmanuel Verdier (3-1)
Women's Strawweight: Thais Souza (0-1) vs. Ashley Samples (0-2)
Featherweight: Landon Stewart (0-0) vs. Rudial Mora (0-0)

Bellator President Scott Coker added a few thoughts about this announcement.

"The Monster Energy Bellator MMA Fight Series has been a huge success this year and I'm looking forward to heading to Homestead-Miami Speedway during NASCAR's championship weekend for another great event to end 2017. This is a monumental weekend for Monster Energy, including Hans Molenkamp, Tom Norwood, Cody Dresser, Mitch Covington and their entire team, as they close out their first season with NASCAR, and I'm excited to once again make Bellator MMA a part of the fan experience."
