Beginning this year, camping spots will be available to fans inside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the IndyCar Grand Prix road race weekend.

Race fans can bring their own RVs or tents to camp in a designated spot.

Prices for camping will be $125 per tent spot and range from $150-$300 for each RV spot for the three-day Grand Prix weekend in addition to a race day pass purchase. There will be more than 200 spots available.

IMS President Doug Boles said that road racing is best enjoyed with camping, calling upon a trip he took to central Ohio where he went camping during a road race weekend and saw the passion for the experience.

“It is about families coming, it’s about friends coming, coming in the night before the event starts and staying until the morning after it’s over, they’re cooking out inside the facility and really enjoying road racing the way road racing is supposed to be enjoyed,” Boles said.

Tent camping will be available in two areas – the Woods Lot and Unser Lot. RV camping will be available in the Balloon Lot, the Museum Lot, the Woods Lot and the Unser Lot.
