TWS (Texas World Speedway) - places to stay

Alright guys going to go up to TWS (Texas World Speedway) to cornerwork on 4-4, was planning on heading up Friday and staying Saturday night so I could get out there bright and early and head home that night. I was wondering if they allow camping on site, or assuming they have a big parking lot would sleeping in the jeep be a possibility? I have no problem doing it, have done it many times on offroading trips. Basically I'm a college student on a budget which is the main reason for me going up there to cornerwork so I don't have to pay for tracktime, so if I could save another $60-$100 on a room sleeping in the Jeep I have no problem with it. TIA


O ya and if not anyone know of some cheap places up there? Again don't care to have a really nice place just looking for cheap. And it would be nice if the jeep was still outside in the morning.

Yes, they allow camping, but you need to get there before they lock the gates. I believe 9pm. No alcohol. You can bring a tent, and they have power. IF I am in town, though, I live not more than 45min from TWS (Texas World Speedway) and would be willing to let you stay in my spare bedroom, as long as you don't mind sleeping on an air mattress.

Man that is a really generous offer! If you are in town that would be awesome! As I said I'll sleep in the Jeep so an air mattress would be more like a hotel.

TWS (Texas World Speedway) had the paddock area in all the tracks around. I used to sleep in my tent but I now have an enclosed trailer with some creature comforts. If inclimate weather is in the forecast, pitch your tent under the last paddock (the furthest one away from the entrance of the track and towards the chicane, it tends to be the driest in a hard/driving rain).

TWS (Texas World Speedway) gates close at 10 pm. Power is available in the garages, but as it is a concrete floor bring an air mattress.

Bathrooms and showers are available at all hours!
See you there,

A nice cushioned sleeping bag will work fine. Air mattresses are for women!
