The infield camping is fun but is really crowded...really very very crowded. Costs range from a couple hundred bucks to a few thousand, depending on location in the infield.
Most track websites will give you all the info you need. I've done the infield thing a couple of times but no more for me. I want more room. It's sorta like visiting India...you can't explain it and you don't want to do it again. Many of the tracks have great campsites within short walking distance (2-300 yards) of the track. Atlanta and Bristol are great tracks for that with the cost being $200 or less for dry camping, $350 or so with water/electric/free tank dump.
Most of the trackside (and infield) camping is charged for the entire week. Show up on Sunday and stay seven nights, or show up on Saturday for one night, and you pay the same price.
