What’s Happening?

Camping at a NASCAR Cup Series race is a tradition for many, and it’s an incredibly unique way to enjoy a NASCAR race. Waking up on a Sunday morning with the shadows of the track casting a shadow on your camper during race day is something out of a race fan’s heaven. Here are some of the BEST race tracks for NASCAR fans to camp at.

  • Any NASCAR Cup Series track that offers camping is eligible for this list. The Chicago Street Race and the LA Coliseum are the only two races where camping is not an option for fans.
  • We will consider multiple criteria when making this list. This includes pricing, availability, overall experience, family-friendly experiences, and the ability to party.
  • Fans love camping at NASCAR races. It’s a tradition for many fans to camp at a race track, and it’s something that every NASCAR fan should do at some point.

5. Pocono Raceway

The Pocono Mountains are already a pristine camping destination as it is, so, why not throw a race track in the mix? Pocono boasted a sold-out infield in 2023, and that’s a testament to the experience fans can get at Pocono Raceway.

While camping at Pocono may be slightly more expensive than other tracks, they do offer free camping with the purchase of one of two different ticket packs. Regardless, the incredible location and the sprawling infield make Pocono a great place to camp.

4. Texas Motor Speedway

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and, while Texas’ campgrounds aren’t the biggest in NASCAR, the biggest big screen in NASCAR makes Texas a great place to camp. The big screen on the backstretch makes for an ideal viewing location for fans stuck in the middle of the infield, not near the racing surface. Instead of lugging chairs to another campsite or buying a grandstand ticket, the screen makes watching the race easy in Texas.

For fans who look to camp on a budget, tent camping can be found for as cheap as $75 for the full weekend. A great value for fans, and a great place for fans who want a luxury experience as well. While the racing product may struggle at times, camping at Texas is always a win.

3. Daytona International Speedway

Camping at the World Center of Racing certainly has its perks. For one, there’s a lake in the infield which makes for an ideal spot to camp on race day. There’s also the rest of the sprawling infield including camping along the iconic Daytona road course. Imagine camping along one of the most iconic road courses in the world.

With such high value comes a high price tag and little availability. The Daytona 500 weekend usually sells out, but, the summer race weekend often has some spots available. If fans are willing to pay a pretty penny, they can have a great experience at Daytona.

2. Charlotte Motor Speedway

Charlotte Motor Speedway offers camping experiences for all different groups. From family campgrounds for families to luxury options overlooking the track, to year-round camping. There’s a little something for everyone, and there’s the big TV on the backstretch which makes watching the race easier for fans in the infield.

As for pricing, the GEICO Family Campground is the cheapest option at $175 for the weekend. There’s usually availability as well, which makes for an easy buy for fans. Charlotte is the home of NASCAR, and that means that fans can explore the track for race shops as well, which just adds to the gaming experience.

1. Talladega Superspeedway

Talladega Superspeedway has a little something for everyone. There’s the Boulevard and different campgrounds around it that feature some of the wildest parties in the Southeast. There are also family-friendly campgrounds that allow for a more relaxed affair.

Talladega also offers free camping at four lots for fans with a Sunday grandstand ticket. That takes care of lodging for many fans traveling to Talladega for a weekend. Talladega is the undisputed top of the ticket just for offering different options for anyone who wants to camp.

These are just a few of the tracks fans can camp at. Any NASCAR track offers an inedible experience for fans who want to camp.
