There are many Pop Odom's close to the Speedway.  On Speedway Road, they are almost hidden by the Independent Vendors.  According to Mr. Eller, they have corrected the past problems with the State and local police and now Nascar fans will find 2 signs posted at the entrance of Speedway Rd, "Martinsville Speedway Parking" and "Private Paid Parking".  Neither the State Police nor Local Police will interfere with Nascar fans who wish to utilize paid parking or paid camping and RV facilities on Speedway Rd if they indicate their preference to the officers in charge. 

I have never seen so many private homes so close to a speedway.  IF you are going to park in these yards get there early because the Independent Vendors are in these folk's front yards and the road in almost impossible to drive on when all the fans are walking on it to shop.

3 PLACES WITH SIGNS
702 Speedway Blvd. - Parking $10.00 and you could spit on Petty Tower you are sooooo close!  This house is the closest I have ever seen some one live next to a NASCAR Speedway.  It is on the right and you will look like you are driving into the track.
96 Speedway Road -- C. Eller Enterprises, RV, Camping and Vendor Spaces for rent, 276-957-2460 or 276-732-5597.  We have a large parking and camping facility located within a few minutes walk of the Main Gate of Martinsville Speedway, and have Vendors on grounds.  Nascar fans have access from both 220 North and Speedway Road. There is also a private entrace on 220 N just before reaching the Speedway entrance at Speedway Rd that facilitates easier access to C. Eller Enterprises.
270 Speedway Blvd. Parking $10.00

Industrial Park drive runs into Clover.  There are Pop Odom's on Clover that are real close to the speedway. 

Also Brass Shop Road runs dead into the Speedway and there were a bunch of Pop Odom's there. Coming from the south they are the road right before the speedway off of US 220.  The houses were situated on the front of the lot and the back yards were where there were campers.  BEWARE this will be a mud pit in the rain because many of the backyards are hills going down hill.

John  Florence at 276-956-4379 home or cell @  276-224-4973     151 brass shop rd.

The road before Brass Shop is Old Sand Road, which may look a little far from the track but there is a road that runs off Old Sands, George Martin Drive which butts up to the track also.

On US 220 there is an Amoco right past the Speedway going north on the other side of the road is plenty of private camping and parking.  All along this area are Pop Odom's camping & parking folks in their yards.  You will almost miss them because the Independent Vendors are in their front yards & you can't see the houses unless you look for them.  Look for the drive ways and there will be signs.

Evans Real Estate & Auction on the corner where 970 & 641 come into US220.  1-800-759-5471

Vaughn's Campground, 276-656-3999  or  276-656-3998 276-632-9332 (fax)

UPDATE BY US: On the corner of 821 & 220 is Quail Run Homes.  They had parking RV's @ $60.00.  Cars and trucks @ $30.00.  Don't know if that was over night parking or not. 

UPDATE FROM LEE JOHNSON:  1.0 Winn Dixie 4920 Greensboro Road, Ridgeway, VA 24148.  We camped beside the Winn-Dixie on 220, just south of the track. Plenty of room, nice grassy area.  $75.00 for the weekend.  Area was flat, lots of grass, a few potties, but right behind Hardees, and across from Wendy's.

UPDATE BY JEANNIE GEHRICKE, Fredericksburg, VA:  We camped at the window company (west windows company.) on Industrial Ave. It is a first come first serve Pop Odom with no fees! The only requirement they have is no tents on their manicured lawns around the building. But you could put up awnings and such and there was plenty of parking for motorhomes around the back where their shipping area is. We didn't try to find a place to stay until around 5 Saturday and they had plenty of room.
UPDATE FROM MIKE L: they don't let you start camping till after 12:00 p.m. on Saturday because that’s when they shut down the shop their phone number is 276-638-2394

From motorhomes open roads forums: continue on up the hill past the Racetrack CG entrance, there are several private homes along that road that rent space on their lawns, at the top of the hill on the right there is a large grassy field that is open for Motor Home parking. Just watch for the valleys where the water would run, I parked there once in what I thought was a great spot, the next morning it was raining and when I stepped out of the MH I was ankle deep in water.

The rest didn't have phone numbers BUT they had signs.

DAILY PARKING FOR SUNDAY:
Loads of Pop's parking fans on Sunday.  The first street on the right past the speedway going north has a Noland Plumbing on the corner.  The name of this road is Industrial Park Rd. & there are Pop's parking down this road.  Also this road runs into Clover and there is parking there too.  See map here.. Their back yards butt up to speedway property.  Good if your seats are in Turn 3 & 4 or on the back stretch.
If you go left at this corner the name of the road is Fisher Farmer Road and there are Pop Odom's parking fans there too.

Martinsville Speedway Campground

MAP TO NEW CAMPGROUND ENTRANCE:  CLICK HERE

Due to heavy traffic and congestion around the speedway following the race, vehicles in the campground area will be held approximately 2 hours for safety consideration in crossing railroad.  It is more like 3 to 4 hours.

To be eligible to reserve a spot, customers must be a season ticket holder for both the April and October NASCAR NEXTEL Cup events at Martinsville Speedway. Each ticket holder can reserve one spot.  Reserved spots are 300.00, 250.00 or 100.00 for the year.

It looks like they still have unreserved camping for the tent campers for 40.00 Click here

BLACK FLAG From Lee J., Mt. Airy, NC:  Martinsville was a BIG mess. I hadn't camped there before, so we gave the speedway property a try. I passed several of what looked like "pops" on the way in, I could have kicked myself after I got into the speedway campground. It is very unlevel (we use a trailer), no marked spaces, no designated roads. If I didn't have 4 wheel drive I would have gotten into several jams trying to find a place. We finally crammed into a place beside a motorhome and trailer, with a tent about 3 feet behind us. Thank God everyone around us was nice, and seemed to take the situation well.

UPDATE FROM DEREK F., Timberlake, NC: Take some blocks or some 2x6 pieces of wood and you can get your camper pretty level.

There is water available.  Either haul it yourself for free or you can have it bought  to your site for $25.00.  You can get your septic pumped out for $25.00.  There is a lady on a gator coming through selling ice for $2.00 a bag.  Papa Johns pizza comes through with already made pizzas as well.

Also, instead of turning left and crossing the railroad tracks when you leave the campground you can turn right and get right out to HWY 58.

NEW IMPROVEMENTS
Two shower trailers. one for men, one for women, will be located in the area of the dumping station. Six shower stalls in each trailer.

There will also be two restroom trailers in the same area

No charge for either showers or restrooms

TRACK CAMPING RULES: HERE
Recreational Vehicles and tent camping is available.
*No advance payment or reservations required or accepted. There are no water, sewer or electrical hookups but water and a dump station are available.

FROM CRAIG F: the new camping policy at Martinsville was pretty much a non-issue.  What they did was make the area from the traintrack to the speedway into high-dollar, season ticket, RV-only reserved spots.  That's a pretty danged small percentage of the total camping area available. I made it a SPECIFIC point to ask long-time Martinsville fans who camp out of buses and such what impact the new policy had on THEM as opposed to everyone else. This informal poll of several dozen sites resulted in a 100% RESPONSE RATE that it was no big deal whatsoever. Most folks were camping where they have been for a decade or more.  I got a reasonably level tent site, even though I didn't show up till
11:00 AM on Saturday. So, if you get there before qualifying, pay no attention to that silliness and just stake your claim as you normally would.

INDEPENDENT VENDORS

All along US 220/58 across from the Speedway are Independent Vendors.  They run on the opposite side of the street from Fisher Farm Road to the bank where the second Vaughn's campground is located. 

They are also located on Speedway Road on both sides of the road in the Pop Odom yards.  There are almost as many vendors at Martinsville as there are in Charlotte.   

We also saw some on the same side of the road as the speedway before you get to the track coming from the south heading north on US 220/58

BLCK FLAG FROM CONNIE R:  wanted to write and warn any of your fans going to Martinsville about the Holiday Inn express there.  Last year I made my reservations with them for what I thought would be April 16th. I found out that NASCAR might be changing the date of the race so on May 14th (when NASCAR announced the change) I was glued to my computer and as soon as it was announced I changed my reservations to April 9th. I got my tix to the race and took the days off from work. Everything was good. Then on March 7th this year I get a call from Martinsville Holiday Inn express saying they're sorry but they are overbooked and I have no rooms! They offered to switch my reservation to the Greensboro NC hotel which is 48 miles south, and I'm coming from the north!

the reasoning behind this was that they had contracts with NASCAR to provide rooms. I reminded her that when they confirmed my reservation they also had a contract with me! I have e-mailed corporate and NASCAR but have yet to receive a reply. I am trying to find a number to talk with someone in a position of power and don't know what will come of it.

I don't know if this just happened to me or to other race fans as well, but I thought you might want to put the word out to any race fans who are staying there that they might want to call and check the status of their room.
