If you are arriving in an RV and/or camping, you may wish to park in one of the fields just west of the track, such as the 5-acre American Legion Post 500 field (1926 Georgetown Rd, (317) 244-9625 ).

Also across the street from the speedway is the Wilcox Mobil Home Park (1826 Georgetown Rd). They offer bathroom facilites and showers, hookups for RV's and cars and tent campers are welcome too. Call (317) 248-1311 for information on rates.

Most of the camping area around the Speedway is owned by the Speedway. You can buy camping/parking passes from them in advance for RV's, cars and tents.
Speedway Reserved Parking/Camping page
In 2006, I noticed some entrepreneur brought in large shower facility on wheels. I believe it cost $5 to start the shower, then a $1 every minute. Its nice for the tent campers.

RV's are not allowed in the infield of the Speedway unless you wish to purchase a special permit from the track for $4000. This is intended for race teams and drivers.

People will show up early to get a good spot across the street from the track where a concentration of action is. They will also try to find a nice spot under a shade tree. When it comes to showers, you're on your own, though you may be able to find some porto-potties.

Also, next to the Speedway's reserved Lot 1, is the speedway's HUGE "coke lot". While you can reserve space there, you can just show up and pay at the entrance. Sometimes no one is even around to charge you. The gates open on Thurs morning at 7am first come first serve."

Also, a reader wrote in about an area southeast of the track:
"Great race parking outside of track between 2nd and 3rd turns at Speedway Industrial Park, 4400 W 10th Street, located between 10th and 16th street off of Polko St. Over 30 acres with tent and RV camping available. Raceday parking only $10 for cars."
