Victory Lane for NASCAR Viewing

Here are the 5 go-fastest reasons to get your motor running, from the undisputed king of left-hand-only racing.


are a ‘Merican motorsports match made in carburetor heaven. And it’s more than just the fact that there’s the crossover between RVers and motorsports fans—RVing at NASCAR events combines two great American pastimes: parties and racing. Just don’t expect to get a lot of sleep done.

Talladega Superspeedway

Talladega sports over 20 different RV and camping sections, so you’re sure to find one that fits your budget (and your penchant for partying). The city of Talladega is only 26 square miles, which is an ironic place to put NASCAR’s longest and fastest track. BEST REASON TO GO Observing the spectacle of what happens when over 100,000 NASCAR fans cram into a town with a population of 15,500.

Pocono Raceway

The Pocono Raceway is set in one of America’s great getaway destinations. Like Pocono itself, the raceway sports several affordable camping options including the GEICO Family Campgrounds, which reflects the area’s family-friendly vibe, and tent camping for only. BEST REASON TO GO Affordable camping square in the middle of “The Tricky Triangle,” and an excuse to stay
a few extra days in the Poconos.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway

The Indy Motor Speedway Museum is a must-see, as it reflects the Brickyard’s history as an American racing mainstay for over a century. Most drivers will list the Brickyard just after Daytona in terms of prestige, and most infield camping fanatics will too. BEST REASON TO GO Sleep (and party) where racing history has been made for over 100 years.

Homestead-Miami Speedway

Points are always at a premium in Miami, as the Dixie Vodka 400 is the last race in the Cup Series. Unlike other tracks, there are only a few options for camping, and you’ll have to pay $1,200 to
get hookups. But Miami sure does know how to party, and the Geico Gecko RV Park fits right in. BEST REASON TO GO The last miles of racing, and also the appropriately named “infield
beach party,” located on a 20,000 square-foot beach inside of Turn 3 around a 7-acre infield lake that spans the width of the backstretch. In Miami.

Daytona International Speedway

The Daytona 500 is called the richest race on the circuit for a reason. It’s held in February (too late now to see Austin Cindric win this year), but it’s never too early to get your tickets for next year. Daytona’s a motorized Mecca for hardcore fans, sporting high-dollar prices, and high-dollar amenities. There are multiple camping areas inside and out of the infield, including premium options with hookups. BEST REASON TO GO 500 miles of “The Great American Race” run on one of the most difficult tasks in the sport.
