Knowing what to pack and what you will need is half the battle when it comes to RVing to NASCAR campsite events. Although every track is different there are some standards which seem to be universal throughout the NASCAR world. With that in mind, we have come up with a list of items that you should and should not bring to your next RVing trip to a NASCAR track.
What You Can and Can’t Bring to a NASCAR Campsite
What to Bring to a NASCAR Campsite
- Sunscreen. always a good option as you will likely be out in the sun most of the time.
- Water. Dehydration can quickly ruin a fun trip.
- 14” x 14” x 14” soft-sided cooler. The NASCAR standard when it comes to bringing your own food and drinks into a NASCAR track.
- Track or venue map. Know where you’re going with a handy NASCAR track or venue map. Many tracks have maps available free for your use.
- Weekend event calendar. There is more to a race weekend then just the race, have your event calendar ready to know where to go and when.
- Your good spirit. If you stay in a positive mood, you are much more likely to have a better time as well as be a better camping neighbor.
What Not to Bring to a NASCAR Campsite
- Weapons of any kind. Guns, knives, nunchucks. If it considered a weapon, it will not be allowed on NASCAR-affiliated campgrounds.
- Glass. Glass bottles and other glass items are the ultimate no-no in any NASCAR setting. Glass can break and cause hazards to others so always get drinks that are in aluminum or plastic.
- Scaffolding. Scaffolding ruins other’s views and is generally not allowed in NASCAR venues so don’t bother bringing it.
- Fireworks. Even on the Fourth of July, fireworks are not allowed in NASCAR-affiliated campgrounds.
- Small trailers. Many NASCAR grounds are self-contained RVs only and you may be turned away at the gate for attempting to bring a trailer.
- Non-licensed motorized vehicles. Golf carts and scooters are great for quick trips but typically not allowed at NASCAR camping sites.
- Drones are quickly becoming more popular but they are not allowed at NASCAR tracks.
- Advertising or signing signage or banners. NASCAR expressly prohibits unlicensed advertising at race venues.
Following these dos and don’ts helps both you and everyone around you have a good time. This list is not definitive so always check the track’s unique rules and regulations so you’re properly prepared.
