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 she’s 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 haven’t won the lottery (not yet anyway) so price is a concern
We’d like camping on the adjoining property.....walk to grandstands.

We’ve 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.

Several years ago we stayed at Yates Family Campground. It is about 1/2 mile or a little further across the parking from the backstretch. Too far for us to walk but easy access driving to a handicapped parking lot along the shuttle road that circles the track. We went in May for Allstar race and the 600. The price then was 400 for full hook ups for the 10 days. Would definitely consider staying there again, smaller park that didn't get crazy from loud partiers.

We have stayed at Glenwood Acres in Charlotte. It’s full hook ups & across from the racetrack. It’s costlier on race weekend however decent price other days. Our spot was on the outside of a small mobile home park. Need to look at there website. May be too late for spring race.

There is camping at the track in Martinsville but I can not help with who or how it get in touch. You could call the track I suppose as they have several full time employees.

Do not know it there is any electric.

Also if you come to Martinsville, Econo RV are great people (Small dealer)
just north on Rt 220 if you need assistance with an RV.

Which “outside” campgrounds do y’all use. There’s a few nice ones but FHU sites are pricey. We use the Earhart CG which is sorta attached to the track. I noticed they now charge $200 for the boondocking sites. FHU still at $550 but hard to book.

oooohhhh yuck, at Kentucky speedway we stay at General Butler State Park Carrollton Ky, less than 40 bucks, very nice place to stay with full hookup at some sites, very big place and close to highway with gas and minor shopping in that area, i think it was 17 miles south of the track, perfect. At Bristol we stay at RiverPark campground in Jonesborough Tenn, 50 bucks, nice place to stay with full hookup, it is a smaller place but perfect also, i think about 5 miles from the highway, Walmart was close also, about 27 miles to Bristol all highway driving, loved the campgrounds with the river right there, going back again, hope this suites you it did us, if you have a spot at other tracks please share

Everybody does NASCAR different. We attend most of the western area races, but only if we can stay AT the track for a week. Almost always dry camp spots. Used to be first come first serve areas just outside of the actual track, but now most every track we go to is all reserved.

Staying at the track is a much different experience than just driving in. We love it. Nothing like partying for a week with thousands of fellow rednecks!!!!!

We have met some fantastic people at NASCAR, many who have become life long friends.

Have fun!!!
