driving directions to florida keys

will be driving to marathon,fl. the day of the race at homestead and would like suggestions to avoid the traffic near the track. have seen people taking hwy. 27 off aligator alley. (I-75). is that road rv friendly? also what roads could we take further south. hwy 997 doesn't look great . if i take hwy 821 (turnpike) should i exit to hwy 1 (near cutler ridge).

i would like to thank everyone for any responses.

997 going south from US 41 is good road. I'm not sure where the track is but 997 ends right at US 1. There are a few lights and some ag traffic but nice drive. You'll see where the big shots in Miami buy all their plants. LOTS of nurseries along 997.

997 was good for us, mostly rural but good road.

You shouldn't have a major problem with traffic. I've gone to the race. The traffic jams are on secondary roads near the track, not the Turnpike. If you want to be certain, though, drive through DURING the race. There won't be any traffic. It will all be at the track.
