Camping out: Elevating the fans’ race-day experience at World Wide Technology Raceway

For decades, camping at the speedway has been a popular part of the auto racing experience for thousands of motorsports fans. Taking a recreational vehicle or camper to a race offers many attractive advantages over airports, rental cars and hotels. According to Barron’s, 2020 was a near-record year for RV sales and industry experts predict a 19.5% sales surge in 2021. World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Illinois, has recognized the popularity of, and demand for, camper and RV space and will up its game for the 2021 season.

“World Wide Technology Raceway’s footprint has increased more than four times in just eight years,” said WWTR Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Blair. “With that growth we’ve added more than 200 acres of additional parking and camping space. Our schedule continues to grow each year, which multiplies the opportunity for fans to spend a weekend at the races.

“We know that more and more people are looking for unique ways to enjoy their homes on wheels. Camping at the track takes the weekend getaway and race-day experience to a new level. Trackside camping allows you to be up-close and personal to the action. The campground on the outskirts of our property offers families the opportunity to enjoy the races, then enjoy the attractions of downtown St. Louis. We offer something for everyone.”
