CAMPING NEAR TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

We never been to this speedway BUT I can tell from researching on the internet that this is definitely one of those tracks where you need a detailed map of the area.  I know I have this every week BUT this is the most important task you should do to help yourself with traffic, entering & exiting the track headaches.  Also, there are many small towns in the Dallas-Fort Worth area as you can see by the town names on the campgrounds below.  Start with these and when you call if they are filled ask for suggestions.  Also, ask if they know if there are people parking and camping fans in their yards like we have at Darlington, Bristol, Charlotte and Richmond.  Many of these sites had maps on them.  If there isn't a link ask when you call.

RV Dump Stations

The Dump Station is located on the corner of Lone Star Circle and Mark Martin Drive. Service is also available at your site from a third party vendor for a nominal fee.Water ServiceWater service is provided on property during racing events through a third party vendor for a nominal fee. 
From my experience at other tracks that have a dump station the line is very long.  See if any of the places listed below are on your route home.

I-10 - MP 394 E, W; MP 514 E, W; MP 590 E, W, MP 621 E, MP 622 W,
I-45 - MP 124 N; MP 125 S
I-35 - MP 130 S; MP 180 N, S

Also, Most Flying J Travel Plaza's and T.A. Travel Plaza's have dump stations

Brookshire’s grocery store

Brookshire’s, the Official Grocery Store of Texas Motor Speedway, is bringing its show – and shelves – on the road. The grocer will construct a temporary grocery story near the Lone Star Circle campground, which is near Lil’ Texas Speedway. Race fans camping throughout the week will never have to leave the property to pick up groceries or various items that they may need for entertaining.

Ice Sales There are two locations. A Reddy Ice truck is located in the speedway infield by the south concession stand near Turn 1. The second Reddy Ice location is in the east campgrounds area by Lil’ Texas Motor Speedway on Mark Martin Drive – a balloon floating 30 feet in the air will mark the location.

SHOWER HOUSES

Shower FacilitiesTexas Motor Speedway provides five permanent shower and restroom facilities at various locations across property. There are two located in the infield adjacent to the concessions/parking areas – both north and south – on the west side of Allison Avenue. There are three additional shower/restroom buildings located in or near the outside camping areas. These include two buildings in the Workhorse Reserved Camping outside of Turn 3 – one just off Mark Martin Drive and the second one to the north just off Harmonson Road. The fifth shower/restroom building is located on the south side of the property outside Gate 8 on the corner of Allison Avenue and Victory Circle.

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.

Independent Vendors

They are located behind the speedway in a field.  Remember they are in the white tents and trailers.  They have the best deals on merchandise.

FROM DAVID S.: Independant vendors are at the Circle H camp grounds every year and also at the corner of Hwy. 114 and I35W.

What to Do

DIRT TRACK

If you have never been to a World of Outlaws Race you have to make sure you get there while at Texas Motor Speedway.  I've seen them run at Talladega and Charlotte.  It is a lot of fun watching those cars slid thru the corners and do the old slide job. These cars also can tumble and roll with almost no injuries. Another way cool thing they do is at the beginning of the race they do the "Fan Salute" which has the cars line up four wide.  Charlotte's track is the least dusty dirt track I've been to and since the same corp. owns both I expect the same from Texas.
LAIDBACK RACING TIP: At Charlotte and Talladega if you wait until the A-Feature (the main event held at the end of each night) to go into the track you do not need a ticket.

UPDATE FROM Mona S. Springfield, MO (thanks Mona)
THE PLACE TO GO:  FORT WORTH STOCKYARDS: 
On Friday nights we always go down to the FT Worth Stockyards.   There are great places to eat and always lots of race fans.
(You go thru the stock yards to get to Sundance Square 512 Main St, Fort Worth, TX 76102-3907 Phone: (817)339-7777 where the Chevy Thunder is held) 
This is only about 20-30 min from the track (depending on traffic) when you exit the track from Petty drive, turn Left and follow the road to the Stockyards. (This is also a great back way into the track to avoid the heavy highway traffic.  This is hwy 156, it's a 2 lane road but we have never had any trouble with heavy traffic.  This hwy is East of I-35 and runs parallel to the interstate)

Billy Bob's Texas (worlds largest Honky Tonk) 2520 Rodeo Plz Fort Worth, TX 76106-8208 Phone: (817)589-1711 they always have great concerts going on during race week and often driver appearances.  2 lg dance floors.  If you love country music this is the place.  (Bobby Labonte has been here several times to sign) http://www.billybobstexas.com  (THANKS JAY!)

Cowtown Coliseum 121 E Exchange Ave, Fort Worth, TX 76106-8211Phone: (817)625-1025 (Legendary landmark built in 1908, Live rodeo every weekend yr round.)  I met Mike Wallace there this yr.  Also Jeff Hammond was there.  So the drivers go and hang out.

Stockyards Museum 131 E Exchange AveFort Worth, TX 76106-8212 Phone (817)625-5087 and Stockyard Station 140 E Exchange Ave Fort Worth, TX 76106-8203Phone: (817)625-9715 are also there.

We always eat at Cattlemen's Steak House.  2458 N Main St Fort Worth, TX 76106-8500
Phone: (817)624-3945 (also in the stockyards.) (My mouth is watering just thinking about it)  Great service, GREAT food.  If you don't like beef you won't like it, cause they don't serve a lot of other stuff.  Expect to pay about $20 per person, not including alcohol.   Mike Wallace and crew ate every night here this year.  Cattlemen's was an associate sponsor of his Busch Car.  This was our 5th yr eating there and we have always seen, race teams, crew chiefs or owners, or drivers here.
We waited in line the first yr, with 3 of DEI's big guys, Ty Norris, Don Hawk and another guy I can't remember who it was.  Oh yes, the only down side is we have waited as long as 2 hrs for a table, but we waited with the DEI guys.  Get there early and it's not bad, after 7p and you will wait.

All of the above are within easy walking distance of each other.  We park in a lot and spend the evening there.

A FEW MORE RESTAURANTS

UPDATE FROM ROBERT: Most of your restaurant listings are up in Denton, but Roanoke is just a few miles east of the speedway (at 377 and 114).  Babe's Chicken Dinner House has been featured in Southern Living as having some of the best fried chicken in the south.  They have a NASCAR friendly BYOB policy and word is some of the drivers who aren't into fitness stop here at least once on race week.  Don Mateo's has good Tex Mex and margaritas that will put you on your butt.  They also have a Chilis and some fast food choices.

Up In Smoke in Keller, the BBQ Smokehouse and motorsports bar.  They have live music, enthusiastic fans, and a great collection of NASCAR memorabilia.  There is also Papa G's sports bar and soon a No Frills Grill sports bar, all in Keller.

GREEN FLAG FROM JAY W. TX: Killer steak place south near the speedway:  Saltgrass Steakhouse, 5845 Sandshell Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76137 817-306-7900

GREEN FLAG FROM DAVID S TX: Mom's cafe in Justin. It is only a couple miles down 156 and they make one heck of a breakfast. 
Mom's cafe  (940) 648-2581,  417 N Sealy Ave, Justin, TX 76247

Also McClures restaurant around the corner from Petty place on 114 is good too.
