Having sold out of reserved tent camping, Atlanta Motor Speedway has opened two new campgrounds to accommodate fans attending the speedway’s first NASCAR Sprint Cup night race on Labor Day weekend, Sept. 5 and 6.
The Legends Reserved Tent Campground and Elliott Reserved Campground have been created by Atlanta Motor Speedway to meet surging camping demand for Atlanta’s first full weekend of night racing, according to paddocktalk.com, a racing news service.
“With a host of fans eager to camp at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Labor Day weekend for our first NASCAR Sprint Cup night race, it was critical that we add additional camping spaces to meet fan demand,” said Atlanta Motor Speedway president and general manager Ed Clark. “Two groups specifically – handicap camping and tents and popups – sold out rather quickly, so we wanted to provide additional camping opportunities for fans with these needs.”
Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Elliott Reserved Campground is located directly behind the Elliott Grandstand overlooking Turn 3 and will include two additional rows of camping for handicap patrons. The Elliott Reserved Campground also features a large number of sites adjacent to handicap camping for additional fans. Each RV spot is approximately 45 feet long by 25 feet and costs $150.
Shaded by a tree grove, the Legends Reserved Tent Campground is located between Atlanta Motor Speedway’s main entrance and the Legends Campground. With more than 230 campsites with dimensions of 20 feet by 30 feet for $125, the Legends Reserved Tent Campground will be one of the most desired camping locations on the Atlanta Motor Speedway property, Clark predicted.
