I could use some advice. My wife and I are still newbies (we've only taken our RV out twice since we bought it). We are taking it to the NASCAR Truck race next weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Since we have never camped without hookups, what are some words of advice as what to have on while we are at the races (generator, frig on LP, etc)?

I appreciate your words of wisdom.

We have been to many races and dry camped at them. Here is a little something I wrote on dry camping at music festivals. Pretty much the same applies at NASCAR races. Make sure you enter with a full tank of gas / fuel and a full tank of water.

Oh, always carry a little extra food incase the race gets delayed to the next day.

Here is also a NASCAR specific message board on camping at tracks. Here is the link to NASCAR camping. Link here

We have only been to Talladega, so I can't speak for all race tracks. But at Talladega they have trucks that come by to pump out your black and grey tanks. Trucks with ice, water, and propane make rounds hourly. They have mobile RV repair people on site. CW and Honda have very supply you can think of in their tents. There are big bath houses. Also, Porta Potties you can rent that you keep at your site, with a key. Now that is special.
Food is the one item I recommend, fast food gets old, that you give consideration to. Bar-B-Que was popular.
Have fun!

Just to update this one....
This year we did July (truck and nationwide) and september (cup) at chicagoland speedway.

In july, we made friends with someone who had a bluebird school bus with a deck on top. This is how it is done for sure.

In september, they misnumbered the sites. Ours didn't exist. The speedway comped us fan zone tickets and an electric site. A friend of my sons got us into the cup garage. We saw 2 live concerts. Larry's lady fell off a pickup truck oin the tunnel. We watched the race atop larry's converted bluebird. I got invited to michigan in larry's bus next year. My wife came to the races.

I had the best time of my life. Again. And again.

There are no strangers in the infield at a nascer race, only friends you haven't met yet.

The thought of Kansas next weekend occurred today....Never going to any NASCAR events but the Busch race at Gateway(local track) years ago..I'm clueless.
Kansas's website doesn't give enough info for a newb...

Does anyone know, would it be possible to arrive late Friday?

the self contained, no pets, quiet times, etc etc is no issue

thanx

If you are going to be in a camping area you need an exhaust stack for your generator. Without one you will kill your neighbor or they will kill you. Carbon monoxide is deadly and at that close range there is a lot of it so rought your generato exhaust high in the air. I have seen people use that flexible dryer hose.

We did four years in turn four at the January race at Daytona,what a blast. there's not enough room on this site to list the things we saw and did. In 05 it cost $1200 for the week and that included fan zone and starting line introductions But in 08 it cost $1800 with no extras. For the year 09 they told us the price was going to be $2100 so we Quit going. I do beleive they back of that figure because that year the infeild didn't sellout and it looked half empty.

Michigan raceway, been going for years in infield. 150 for whole weekend. $60 to $100 per person depending on how early you order before race. Lot is 40 by 19ft. In 2012 included free race seating. No real rules and is a great time. Never a problem everyone is there for a good time. Have 2 nascar races a year, June and August

Speed thanks for the common sense response. I've used a genny stack for years...on RV and my race trailer. NHRA has required them for many years now....I never leave home without them!

I find it really unbelievable Kansas would not allow camping in 1 of their 3 locations without being a season ticket holder. Their facility...their rules...I guess they don't need any of my $$$

And if you turn on your roof vent fan and suck air in you pull in yours and your neighbors exhaust fumes.
FMCA found that out years ago and quit requiring them at their rallies for the above reason.
