I personally enjoy camping and I'm cheap, plus it means I can wake up when the noise starts and not worry about oversleeping.

Some people hate camping for various reasons, so they spend the money on a hotel.

I'd recommend that even if you do hotel it, you come by the track the night before to get a spot, unload the bike, and meet people. There's lots of folks milling about and if you wait until the day of, everyone will be too busy to talk much.

I live in katy and drive up the morning of the event. It's not bad at all and I usually only get a few hours sleep the night before. There are a few other katy riders who do the same. I wouldn't bother with hotel expenses just camp or drive up(~1.5 hr drive at 65mph) the same morning to save yourself the extra money and hassle.

ive stayed i at motel 6 that is less than 5 minutes away from TWS (Texas World Speedway). i have also stayed at other nicer hotels but the motel 6 allows us to have a room with our truck parked outside the door. only $39.95.

either way, you wont be able to sleep the whole night and wont miss anything if you get there by 8am.

I've tried all three and find going up that morning the easiest. From Sugar Land, it took me an hour and a half. You should do it in less. One caveat: if you can't load everything because of security concerns and motel security is a problem, then camping is safest.

if it is a monday track day it is ok to go in the morning, if it is a friday (race weekend) is going to be hard to find a pit area so you must camp the day before and hope to find a spot or just go the same day in the morning but you will not find a spot, bring your canopy(sp)

They charged me $15 for dropping my bikes off this past Monday. We stayed at Comfort suite about 2 miles down the road. Free breakfast, comfortable, good night sleep without all the noise or excitement at the track.

It's $15 to camp. If you're dropping the bikes and heading back out they usually let you give them your license and then you pick it up going back out so they know you haven't stayed. Ask the gatekeeper next time.

During the summer you'll be able to find hotels MUCH cheaper in CS then say...football season. So, if you wanna do the hotel then its an allright idea.
I live in CS, and if i had a locking garage Id let ya'll store stuff with me, but all I got is a covered carport : (
but if anyone is in a tight spot, i might be able to do something for you.
