Never camped for the 500 but have been to many 24 hours of Daytona and Sebring. Other than being very noisy and dirty it was a good experience. Don't expect to get much sleep though.

I stayed on the infield many years ago when the back stretch was still grass and Rusty Wallace did his flip in the grass. When we were parked it was still light. As evening came we were tired and went to sleep. Woke up the next morning to being surrounded by other RV's. There was no way anyone would get out. It is for sure a different atmosphere. Drinking at 6.00 / 7.00 in the AM, campfires in holes dug in the grass, and guy's lining the infield roads with signs "Show us your T..."s. It was just my 10 year old son and myself. We had a good time all in all.

Camped in a tent outside #1 turn in Feb 1965. No camping in the infield. Also got to meet Smokey Yunick at his garage and he gave us a tour of his storage lot, but wouldn't take us in his engine room. lol Super friendly man.

Old coot.... he wouldn't let you in there because that's where the supposed "7/8th" chevelle racecar was being developed. I wonder how many of his ideas would have actually worked had nascar allowed some of them to be used.
