PRIVATE CAMPING NEAR DARLINGTON RACEWAY

There were a few listing for camping in the Darlington Area BUT like many (ALL) southern tracks, the best place to camp is in some one's yard close to the speedway.  Darlington has a slew of them.  There are tens of thousands of camping spots within easy walking distance to the track.  Many are first come first serve BUT after you find a spot you like, talk to the owner about reserving for next year.

Your best bet for camping off of speedway property is on the back stretch, however there are Pop's on the front stretch and on Tunnel Road.  The traffic can be a mess up front though. 

There are also many private parking lots on the back stretch that charge between $5.00 and $15.00 for the day.

The back stretch private camping/parking is closer to all grandstands then most of the front stretch camping.  The speedway owns a big portion of the land on the front stretch and that is where they park cars.  Where we camp on the back stretch, it is closer to Pearson and Tyler than almost all of the front stretch camping.

There is also camping and parking all along Harry Byrd Hwy across from the museum going both ways.

FROM LAIDBACK RACING: We have camped at Pops for over 25 years and he is the best!  However, if you are a bunch of rowdy bubbas who want to stay up all night whooping and hollering GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!  Pops wants everyone to have fun BUT he runs a family campground.  Partying and fun are acceptable with in reason.

INDEPENDENT VENDORS

Independent vendors are in the white generic tents on the back stretch.  Darlington has a slew of them.  These are legal and authorized distributors of NASCAR merchandise or they would not be operating under the nose of NASCAR at the track.  They start at the Raceway Grill outside of turn 2.  There are usually a dozen or so there.  The rest are across from the museum and heading towards turn 3.  Prices and selection are great.  I have found unusual racing souveniors at the independent vendors like my Herman the German poster, my Louise Smith 94 die cast 50's car and my favorite quirky item, a can of Davey Allison Bunker Hill Chili.  There is also another place to eat at the back of the first row of vendors directly across from the museum. 

On the front stretch they are at the Weekend Pit Stop and Young's on Indian Branch Road.  They are also in the yards of "Pops" on Tunnel Road. 

David, Bandit Motorsports, is across from Gate 37 on Tunnel Road.   Lot on left as you are driving to turn 4 minnow pond.  Tell'em hey there from us.

On the frontstretch are the corporate vendors.  You will know who they are by the trailers that are painted like the driver's cars.  Go by them and get your free samples & see when drivers will be at their trailers. There are also many free exhibits setup on the front stretch by different sponsors that have demonstrations, interactive activities & free goodies.   Stuff for kids to do located here.

WHAT TO DO
Racin' Stuff first

THE JOE WEATHERLY MUSEUM & HALL OF FAME - While you are on the back stretch go to the museum and the National Motorsports Press Association Stock Car Hall of Fame.  Just some of the things you will see; Jim Reed's 1959 Chevy-Southern 500 Winner at a record setting speed of 111.836 mph, Cale Yarborough's 1980 Olds-winner of 6 races with an additional 19 top 5 and 22 top 10 finishes in one season, 1956 Ford Convertible of CurtisTurner-25 wins in one season-most in NASCAR History and David Pearson's 71 Mercury-11 wins in 18 starts.  This museum is not only a history of the Darlington raceway but also a look into the early days of NASCAR.  For the long time race fan it is a look at cars & memorabilia that will stir their memories.  For the new fan, it is a look into the roots and history of what has made NASCAR what it is today.   It has cars, of course you expect to see the 1991 Chevy Lumina that Darrell Waltrip flipped 8 times in the Pepsi 400.  But you also get off the wall stuff like Fonty Flock's Bermuda shorts that he raced in.
