Tailgates and Fast Cars

NASCAR TAILGATING IS MORE THAN A FUN THING TO DO...IT’S A WAY OF LIFE!

In NASCAR, the tailgating goes on for days, as fans pull their recreational vehicles, campers and converted buses into race tracks in the days leading up to the weekend’s NASCAR races to camp at the track, tailgating for several days. Sound like heaven?

Race weekends at a given track often include at least two and sometimes three of the national series, and sometimes a regional series like the K&N Pro Series race is thrown into the weekend schedule of on-track activity. With so many races packed into the weekend, a typical NASCAR weekend lasts at least three days, but fans don’t wait until the last minute to get to the track property to set up their camping/tailgating sites. At some tracks, these camping fans roll in nearly a week before the big premier series race.

NASCAR has a reputation of being a fan-friendly sport, with many fans having access to garage and pit areas before races and throughout race weekends. Campers at some tracks have additional opportunities. Richmond isn’t the only track at which drivers get in on the tailgating/camping. Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway campers are notorious for their parties along Talladega Blvd. within the 2.66-mile track’s infield, and drivers often participate in a parade and visit fans’ campsites for the festivities.

What better way to tailgate at a race than with a Homefield Tailgate? Everyone will have their mind on cars and you'll have a tailgate table that is a replica of a truck!
