NASCAR Track Camping Discounts

There are not very many camping discounts available for fans at the race track. Good Sam Club members can get discounts at Darlington (15% off select lots), Kansas (Weekend Tickets PLUS Camping $295), Talladega ($20 off GEICO West Park), and Homestead-Miami (20% off reserved, non-reserved, or tent camping).

It does not seem that NASCAR offers the same kinds of discounts for camping that they do for tickets. If fans want to look for a cheap camping option, they need to look directly at the race tracks.

Some events have places fans can camp outside of the race track. For example, Hayes State Park is just down the street from Michigan International Speedway, and that place offers camping during a race weekend.

How will you go about your next NASCAR camping experience? Are there even more creative ways to find cheap camping at a NASCAR track?
