Seats don't matter. They are all good but I prefer turn 1 or 4. You are probably too late to get reserved camping so you will probably have to go over by the football field. Camping gets tight so go early. They start pouring in Tuesday. Of course there may be no free camping this year. I'm not sure on that.

If your a pit pass person 1 of the best seats In the house at lernerville are the stands to the left of pit exit. Get top row and the angle they are on you get a good view down the front straight and as I said I feel the best seat in the house.

Yea if you want a camping permit you better get on the phone to see if any are available

There is no FREE CAMPING at any MAJOR event/series at the track. Camping is $50.00 if you want to camp on the property. If you have an atv or golf cart you will also need to buy a $50 pass.

Also a "per use" restroom fee. The place is becoming like ppms, oh wait... they are mentoring the Tomsons on how to run or ruin a race track.

No free camping anymore? Wow $50 to camp and $50 for quad. I thought the new owners would be a little less greedy than WRG. Seems they are worse. It is a business but I feel that this is a step in the wrong direction. I guess the fans will pay the whole purse this year just by camping.

Is $50 such a big deal to camp?? Should they have to eat the costs of clean up and damage repair.
As far as ATV/UTV/golf carts go IMO unless you're elderly, sick, hurt, or handicapped why do you need them??

If you talk to the employees that work at the track they all said that they run the place like a real business. You even have to clock in with your fingerprints on this one machine so they know it is you and not somebody else punched you in and out.

not really for me but I'm sure a lot of other people who look forward to a family weekend would spend that money elsewhere at the track. I do believe it will keep people from attending and camping. Although it may help keep some of the rowdy trouble crowd away. Or they will just sleep in their cars. And as far as the atvs are concerned, when you have to carry blankets and other stuff for the kids and you are camping way out by the fields, it makes it a lot easier. Like I said though, it is a business that must make money but $25 is reasonable. $50 is a little extreme. And most of us keep our camp sites pretty clean since they put the dumpsters out. And the atvs make that easier also.

Considering race tracks are businesses, running a track like a business is smart.

Race tracks run like a real business. I'll be dammed. All this time and i thought they were suppose to lose money. At 50.00 the place is still going to be packed with campers. As someone said. They start arriving Tuesday/Wednesday. This is a vacation for many that are there.

Reserved parking place, camping, ATV fee, probably service fee for ticket, reserved seat ticket and pit pass is about $150.
$50 a day max. which doesn't sound like a bad deal.

3 day pass cheap
Concerts 2 nights
kick ball and corn hole
All kidding aside, that's why the place will be packed this year too. I agree with DS2 150.00 for 3 feature races and xtra's. Can't beat that.....
50 camping 25 quad is what I see...
