RVs and Nascar

Who all is heading to Dallas Nov. 2 for the Nascar race?

We are taking our son, and I wanted to take the TT since my brother told me he used to go to races in TN. and would park in the center of the track. We have no idea how that works...is it first come, first serve?
Hubby doesn't want to risk taking it up there, and getting caught in traffic/not getting a spot and having all nearby RV parks full up due to the race.

So, I guess we'll get a hotel room... Which bums me out since this is a scenario I thought made the whole point of having an RV.

Call the race track and ask for info about camping as each track is probably slightly different. Also be aware that most tracks do not have infield camping. Campers are parked outside of the track area and you will still need a ticket for a seat in the grandstands to watch the race.

I was at Dover yesterday (just a day trip), campers in about 6-7 lots I could see. As I walked through two lots to go from parking to the track, it appears each sight was lined off and each camper displayed a camping permit tag from the track.

Couldn't do Dallas this year, But we are doing Charlotte, got a great deal for the whole weekend and a week at a camp-ground (FHU) just outside the track. DW wants to do inside the track some time, Out side cost us about a grand, in side would be about 1500. to 2 grand, things that make you say hhhmmmmmmmm!

The judge is correct you need to contact the Track of their web site to find the particulars. Most infield parking is at a preimum and usually sold out in advance.

TX has infield parking and camping outside of the track. Check craigslist for resell of infield parking, depending on age of your son you may not want to expose him (pun intended) to some of the infield events. I have stayed outside at TX in general parking several times, they also have reserved camping, the general parking is grass and can be very muddy depending on weather, always seems to rain at TMS for me. TX has plenty of parking, traffic in and out of TMS (TX Motor Speedway) is difficult, much better than when it first opened, but still a pain. I would take RV and stay at the track if it was me outside and get grandstand seats unless the party atmosphere of the infield is your thing. I am sure TMS infield has some quieter areas as most tracks do, I am headed to KS Speedway Thursday, I have a spot on the Motorhome Terrace. Good Luck!

$1,000 and up? Mother-of-pearl! I can't afford that. Phew. Glad I asked. Thanks also on the education of the not-family-friendly atmosphere. I had no idea. So, so helpful .Thanks.

Just looked at texas motor speedway rv parking. Outside of turn 3 there are 2500 or more spots. November weekend is 275.00. We were there for April race camped with some of my buddies and their kids had a great time. Would probably go again in November but my son's college basketball season starts on November 5th.

I checked about a week ago and there was only 1 infield parking spot avaiable. It was $1750.00 I didn't take it...

My daughter and son in law stay at a campground near the track. It is more family friendly than staying at the ones around the track. PM me if you are interested in the place.

Another consideration, and others more in the know can verify, this is boon docking type camping, no hookups. At Dover on Sunday, I did see a tank truck with fresh water driving the campgrounds I walked through.

There is unreserved camping available on the west side of the track for $75, 1st come 1st served basis. It is on the outside of the parking lots and from what I hear can be rather rowdy. I will be in the reserved camping on the east side of the track. There is a family campground available for $200 on the east side of the racetrack, trams are available in the reserved campgrounds along with showers and restrooms

A week at Charlotte for the 600 in May, Pole nite, WOO, Nationwide and the 600 dry camping with shuttle service is only $150. Spent last May there, doesn't fill up until late in the week. Already have 2014 race tickets and CG paid for. The $150 is CG only, tickets are based on seat location.

Northlake RV Park

It is a couple of miles from the track, just off of 114. We have stayed there about 6 months within the last 18 months. We were taking care of my parents and the park was close to them. Tell Kenn Hi from Ronnie!
