NASCAR camping....maybe..can you help?

Looking for camping recommendations for ONLY the following tracks with our
35 foot motorhome towing a car.

Richmond, Martinsville, Charlotte or Talladega.

My wife says shes open to attending a NASCAR race as long as we can have:

Minimum..............electric
Nice to have.........electric and water
Ideal...................electric and water and sewer

We havent won the lottery (not yet anyway) so price is a concern
Wed like camping on the adjoining property.....walk to grandstands.

Weve done Michigan International Speedway at Turn 2 Retreat, so she knows that worked perfectly.....our grandstand seats allowed us to see the rig from the seats. We attended for several days....not just race day.

Charlotte, in front of the drag strip. Stone and full hookups. Most back in but wide and long. 32ft class c,and 20ft car trailer. Unload the car and back in without disconnecting. If I angle right, I can unload/load in my spot.

Are you talking about the Camping World Racing Resort Campground?

From google earth photos....looks like sites are at 45 degree angles to each other.
Do you remember the approximate price?
My wife has some disabilities with long distance walking, do you walk to track, or do they have shuttles?

Thanks

Hate to give bad news but getting a site with electric within mile of any Nascar track is just about impossible, unless you’re talking about the 2020 season. Talladega is definitely the most friendly when it comes to shuttle services. Possibly some of the private campgrounds across the street. I was on a wait list for five years before I finally got a FHU site adjacent to the track at Bristol, and it costs $1,100 a year for two events.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

We stayed at the cg that was adjacent to Tom Jonson cg which is now CW. They had Double pull though and lots of of room. The cg is about a mile from the track. They do have shuttle service to and from track. Call early to get spots. They are not that hard to get as less people attending the races. Later RJD

Funny thing is, they sell out for the World of Outlaws finals! I also think the 4 Wide Nats.

nascar camping

I can help u at talladega for the spring race and fall race for 2019 races. I have 2 spots on allison blvd.side by side.

Each site has elect,30 &50 amp with water and sewer.
This is best spot to see the race. You can see see all of turns 1,2 and 3 all back streach and part of the "dog leg" entering the front stretch.
Only motor homes are allowed site is asphalt.
These are my personal sites i have had for several years. I know for a fact there has been a3-5 year wait for these sites.
