Texas Motor Speedway has been given a fresh breath of life in recent years with the introduction of the NextGen car and its superior intermediate track package. The track went from one of the dullest races to one of the most exciting, must-watch races of the year. Add into account all of the exciting amenities and atmosphere the surrounding campgrounds have and a trip away at Texas Motor Speedway could be just what the doctor ordered! Here’s what you can expect when camping at Texas Motor Speedway!

  • Texas Motor Speedway was built in 1996 and added to the NASCAR Cup Series schedule for the 1997 season and has been a mainstay ever since. The track is a 1.5 mile intermediate quad-oval similar to (yet wider than) its sister track, Charlotte Motor Speedway. The banking in turns 1 and 2 measure in at 20 degrees while turns 3 and 4 come in at 24 degrees. The width of the track is 180 feet.
  • Currently, Texas Motor Speedway hosts only one NASCAR Cup Series race per year, typically in the spring. 2024’s race was held during the middle of April and saw NASCAR’s most popular driver, Chase Elliott, return to victory lane.
  • With its modernized amenities and great, family-friendly atmosphere, fans love to go camping at Texas Motor Speedway.
