Welcome aboard. I started camping because I got tired of paying exorbitant hotel fees & fighting traffic at NASCAR races! Tent camped for about 5 years (Bristol, Charlotte, Martinsville) then moved up to a pop-up. Had some great times at all three places, but found myself enjoying the camping part as much or more than the races. So now I enjoy camping at campgrounds with hook-ups & racing from home in front of my 52" HDTV. LOL!
If you like to party at the races, I recommend the Earhart campground at Bristol - right next to the track & always something going on. Not much room & no hook-ups but lots of action. If you'd prefer something quieter & not so crowded, Peaceful Valley is great. About 1.5 miles from track but they have a free shuttle. It's run by a church so no alcohol allowed. But they have water & electric hookups for a reasonable rate & really large spaces.
I just upgraded from my pop-up to a Roo 21SS in September. Only 2 trips before it got cold, but loving it so far!
