I know these tracks do:

Its funny to say I bought a truck specifically to put my bike in the back.

I know people that ride there bike to the trackday, the worst part is riding home, obviously. But once you get fast and need track tires, stands, warmers ect. you will have to either find a ride with plenty of room or buy a small trailer.

I bought a truck because I was tired of borrowing one every time I wanted to do a track day or needed something from home depot.
people look at you funny strapping a bunch of wood to the roof of a sbaru wagon

I'm not fast but I tend to come "over prepared" for track days.
stands, gas, chairs, fan, ice chest with food / drinks, ect...

I bought a small 4x6 utility trailer and northern tool and freight for ~$300. Its good enough for 1 bike, a fuel can, stands, ramp, and a set of takeoffs to fit. It doesnt fold up, but I stand it up on its side in my garage and can still pull my car in next to it.

Actual bike specific trailers are pretty awesome, but significantly more expensive. When I was looking they were starting in the $700 range but have some cool features. My fav were the Big Tex brand.

Me too, but I kept my car for a weekday driver as it gets 30 mpg. Little S-10 comes in handy pretty often, just ask my friends whom I always borrowed from.
