Is it possible to buy just a ticket for Saturday, Oct. 6? No, sorry. But there is a Sunday only ticket.

I’ve rented an RV and purchased my tickets. I can just come to the track and pay for camping, right? No! Camping at the track has been sold out for over a month. Camping is available nearby at the Berrien County Youth Fairgrounds, with free shuttles to and from the track. Electric hookups, water at each site, showers and restrooms, free Wi-Fi. Click CAMPING at for more information.

I bought a camping pass. Do I also need to buy a general admission ticket for the race itself? Yes, you do. A camping pass is needed for a camping vehicle. Each person needs a General Admission ticket (wristband).

Does a weekend pass include camping? No, it’s a General Admission pass good for a person to enter the track Thursday through Sunday. It’s all you need to see the races and all the activities outside the paddock, but it does not include parking or camping. However, you can visit the campgrounds if you have friends there.

I have a camping pass. What’s the earliest I can come to the track? Thursday, October 4that 10am.

I have a campsite and we are bringing a motor home. Wondering if the extra car pass can be a pick up truck with a camper attachment in the bed of the truck? No, sorry. One camping vehicle per site.

How many people can fit in a campsite? Like how many bands can you get for a camper and a car? Maximum 1 camper per site; you can have an extra car if you buy a pass for it. Maximum 2 cars and 2 tents per site. Maximum 8 people per site. We don’t make this stuff up; these are based on Michigan campground rules.

I bought camping Lot ____ (A2, A2, A3, A5, B, C). How do I know which spot to park in? You’ll have your choice of available spaces in your lot when you arrive. However, we can’t let you park in the middle of a row, as that could block a big camper from accessing the empty space next to you. So pick your row and take the next open space.

Can I save a spot for my friend who’s coming in later? Yes, you can save onespace next to you. If your friend has a big camper, make sure you choose a space next to the end of a row so they can get into their space easily.

Is there early arrival staging for campers like at the National? Yes, at the fairgrounds! You can get in line as early as 6pm Wednesday and will have a police escort to the track when we open Thursday morning. Campers in staging will be the first through the gate. Enter the fairgrounds at the intersection of Sylvester Ave and Shawnee Rd in Berrien Springs, Michigan. Map link: (FYI, the River Street parking lot we use for staging in July is NOT available for staging. It’s the Welcome Office location for this event.)

Do you have any hookups? No hookups.

We were thinking about pulling a small pop up camper with our motor home, is this allowed? This one is a technicality, because only one camping vehicle is allowed in a site. But if you’re towing something small, we’ll consider it one vehicle.

Is there water to fill tanks, and sewer pump service available? Yes, these are available from outside vendors. They charge a reasonable fee based on the tank size. They won’t start until Friday afternoon, so make sure you come in with a full water tank and empty sewer tank! I’m on the waiting list. Is there any update on additional campsites available? Not at the track, but full hookup camping is available at the Berrien Country Youth Fairgrounds and includes free shuttles to and from the track Friday through Sunday:

How often are the shuttles running? Are they going to be stopped by the traffic or do they have a different route? They have the best possible route – The one no GPS is going to use! It should be about a 40-minute round trip by the time they drop off and get turned around and back for the next pickup. Shuttles run non-stop Friday 12pm – 12am (last pickup at the track at 11:30pm); Saturday and Sunday 7am – 1pm, and 5pm – 1am (last pickup at the track at 12:30am).

I’m staying with my friends in their RV. Can I just park my car and leave it all weekend? Not at the track, but you can leave it at the fairgrounds and take a free shuttle to the track. There’s no overnight parking at the track, except for people with camping passes than buy a pass for an extra car to park in their campsite.


I’m hearing we aren’t allowed to bring beer. Can you elaborate on that please? You can bring your own alcohol to campsites and parking lots – just NO GLASS BOTTLES. You can enjoy your own beverages at your campsite or tailgate in the parking lot during intermissions, etc. You can’t bring alcohol into the track area (past the wristband check point).
