CAMPING AND PARKING ACROSS FROM THE TRACK BEHIND THE AMOCO:

Glenwood Acres contact Office:704-455-9282.  NO TENTS.  Tell Josh you found them here!
Across from the frontstretch behind the Amoco

RANDY AND EMILY LITTLE'S CAMPING AND PARKING:  We hooked into a place we really liked & stayed there until the 2004 fall race.  It is the first entrance on the left past the Amoco on Morehead at the bottom of the hill.  The only reason we moved is because golf carts aren't encouraged on the property in front of theirs and it is too hard to scoot around in the Little Brown Truck.  Randy and Emily's is still one of the best places to camp just not for us.  Tell'em hey there from Laidback Racing. We have gotten there at all hours of the weekend and never have a problem finding a spot. 
Tell Randy & Emily Laidback Racing sent you! 

LAIDBACK RACING TIP: Get up at the top of the hill and then cut across the lot in front of you to head to the track's frontstretch or turn 1.

Randy, Tim and Shari little also own Ted Little's MHP a small RV park with full hookups.  Water, electric (30 and 50 AMP), sewer and garbage pickup.  They are currently taking reservations. Call  Shari at 704 262 7857 or 704-425-4359 and ask for Randy.
Please tell Randy and Shari you read about it here!

Across the street from the track on Moorehead down from the Amoco on both sides are Pop Odom camping. Please Note: Moorehead becomes Mallard Creek almost immediately.  Off Moorehead/Mallard Creek on Everette, Fenton, Aarick, Amy, Mobil Trail, Deltrae Circle, Friskie, Annette and other little side streets are camping.  Some have hookups some don't. These are good spots if you have seats on the frontstretch or Turn 1.

Prices are from $5 to $20 for parking, $75.00 and up for camping.  We have never had reservations but have always camped within a block of the track.

Outside of Turn 4 on the same side of the road as the track is Pitts School Road.  I have been told there are businesses that are closed during the race where you can park and walk to the track by cutting across the speedway camping (brings you outside of turn 3).  You have an easy way out to Hwy 49 after the race.

Below is camping away from speedway if that is how you want to camp BUT I really recommend staying with a Pop Odom by the track to avoid the traffic.

Charlotte Motor Speedway Camping

Year after year, more and more people combine the thrill of racing with the relaxation and escape of camping at The Greatest Place to See the Race, Charlotte Motor Speedway. Whether you want full service hook-ups for your class A motor home or just a little grass space for your family's tent, we can meet your needs. We have a variety of options at affordable prices. Come join us for the races, camp with your friends, and make new ones. Join us at race time, or any time as the Tom Johnson Campground at Charlotte Motor Speedway is open year-round!  Visit www.charlottemotorspeedway.com   to reserve your spot

ROCK CITY
UPDATE From Gene B.: Stayed at the Rock City campground when we were at Charlotte in the fall. It was OK with a shuttle from the campground to the track. Of course the post race crowd leaving overwhelmed the shuttles, so they just parked and watched people walk.

Morehead Farms is located behind the track.  It is on Morehead Road between Hwy. 49 and Hwy. 29.  The track owns it and you can call Lowe's Motor Speedway ticket office to reserve a (704/455-3200).

GREEN FLAG FROM MIKE B: We got to Concord late Friday afternoon, just before the rain. We camped at Morehead Farms, behind Turn 2 on Morehead Road.  No hook-ups, Plenty of room, and the best part was that it was at the very end of the Tram Route, making it real easy to get back and forth to the track. Even with the rain we got Friday (which pushed the Busch race into one big old day of racing on Saturday), the paving done by SMI after the Coke 600 washout did the job.

H2O 2 YOU

Need water brought to you?  These guys bring water to your RV and fill up your tank whether you are outside the track or in the infield.
Give them a call and tell'em Laidback Racing sent you.

Showers

Outside of turn 4 is a shower house.  The last time I used it was a few years ago.  I got there at 6:15AM and still had to wait around 45 minutes.  It was 2 big rooms with around 12 shower heads in each. (sort like jail showers)  no privacy like the old shower house that used to be on the back stretch.  Also no hot water.  See tip below.

UPDATE From Mike in N.C. I have a report of Showers in the Fleetwood Campground.  It is available to all campers at Charlotte Motor Speedway & it has hot water too! 

UPDATE From Lee: Stayed at Rock City Campground across from Tom Johnson Camping center for the Winston. Tram ran from there to the track, and also there was a shower bus to the new bathhouse behind Tom Johnson's. New showers, individual stalls, plenty of sinks, etc. Went early on the day of the Winston about 8:00AM, and I think there were about 10 people in the showers, no problem!!

LAIDBACK RACING TIP: Wear a bathing suit, ride your bike there and bring a friend to keep you company.  OR construct a camp shower at your site and be happy because Charlotte can be very HOT and it sucks to take a shower and then get sweaty walking back to your camping spot.  Especially after waiting for a hour or more.

Independent Vendors

Located across from the front of track on Hwy 29/Concord Parkway.  The midway runs from the second row of tents parallel to Speedway Blvd to the Amoco on Morehead.  The independent vendors are in the white generic tents & haulers. Great Prices & great stuff! Look for the "Everything's a Dollar tent" among others.  There are many food vendors located in this area.  Food is much better than average race food.  They serve breakfast along with dinner foods including seafood, steaks and more!  (The first row of tents are sponsor exhibit tents like Lowe's, Coleman etc. they have exhibitions & prizes.) 

2009 MRO Speedway Church Service

The area Raceway Ministries will provide outreach activities throughout the weekend at seven locations. Locations are in Vendor Row, Morehead Farms Campground, Coleman Campground, Fleetwood Campground, Peninsula, Rock City and one location in the infield.

The only time I have ever stayed at a hotel on Race weekend was for the Winston one year when my high society sister went with us.  She loved the night racing but insisted that we stay at a hotel.  We called on the Friday night before the All-Star race and got a motel room for 1 night for the regular rate.  It was around 15 to 20 miles to speedway but no biggie.  So, the hotels listed above are for rooms not in the city of Charlotte.
