Pocono just added a lot of powered spots. They were on the local news because they're using solar to provide the power.

Infield at Pocano

Hi Neighbor - Lee NH here, just returned from Dover DE - not infield but a great time, will be off to Pocano infield next week - our favorite track. Then NHMS, Watkins Glen and back to Dover this year.

Camped for 7 years in infield of Talladega, love it
Camped inside Charlotte, its pretty good time, can see pretty well all the way around.
Infield at Darlington is very tight, 15x40ft spots but great place to watch the race.

So how far in advance did you make your reservations at any track?

Depends on the track, some are booked up pretty far in advance. Best thing to do is call the track. Get on their website and print camping maps so while you are talking to the ticket person you know where the spots are they are offering.

I like watching the race so choosing good seats where I could watch the entire race trumped being in the infield and not being able to see a lot of the track. I certainly understand the appeal of the infield experience but, for us, what we did worked perfect.

Sorry I can't help you. NASCAR is too quite , not fast enough and takes hour to find the finish line. I prefer NHRA with 10,000 HP + machines and winner is found in under 4 seconds.

Good advice above - i make mine in early Jan/Feb, but realistically you can get "some" spot at about any track at the last minute. that lets you look around and see where you like and re-book early the next year. I just called Dover for the fall race this year and got into lot 8 with no problem. Pocano still has openings in teh infield, Watkins Glen is tight as that sells out every year. NHMS is a wild card - no one knows how busy the July race will be now that there is only one per year. I leave for Pocano next thurs, then NHMS, Watkins Glen and Dover in Oct will be it this season.

You will be VERY close to your neighbor so the previous mention of the Gen-Turi is imperative. So close that you may not be able to extend your awning fully. And it could be loud as there can and probably will be some contractor type generators there.

Dump tanks and load up on fresh water prior to entering. You can pay to have pump outs and water from the rolling crews that they sometimes have.

Showers could be from a stand alone building to a tractor trailer that they roll in for the event.

My experience is from IMSA, INDY, and vintage racing. Those series tend to not gouge you as much as NASCAR. I have nothing against it and would pay it if I so desired. You should know ahead of time that you will/may have to pay for pit passes, paddock access, grid walk, and access to the other entertainment areas in the infield.

Depending on which state or facility you are going to you might not be able to bring out of state firewood in. Sometimes they limit fires all together. And there is a chance that open burns are not allowed and it will need to be in a raised fire container of some sorts.

And then there are the parties. It can get a little loud and crazy. I have been to Michigan Speedway infield and it was raucous to say the least. It lived up to it's reputation. Food and beer are at premium prices as well, so stock up. But that is ALL part of the fun of the infield !!!

Hope you have a great time!!!


NASCAR infield camping is somewhat between Mardi Gras and Sodom and Gemora. Disgusting. ....
