Can anyone provide me with info on a place I can make camping reservations for the spring race?  At the track, near the track, either is fine.
 
Or, do you know any websites where I can find a list?

All American Campground takes reservations and they are CLOSE to the track.  You might also try Pole Position Campground, their info is on the BMS website.

it depends....if you're a pretty cool guy and think you can keep up, stay in gaines' place....bristolcapground.com........if not, you can stay at one of those other places......
nah...for real though, there are plenty of places to stay with great people at all of them....if you've got a camper and can get it there early, go to earhart east....it's right there at the track....if you're tent camping, you might want soemthing with less generators....bill gaines' is good for that.....it's not too over run with rvs.....it is a decent hike to the track though....everywhere has shuttles, but everyone is taking them...you just have to have patience to get on one.....
you'll get plenty of good advice here...just take a look at the map, pick where you think you might want to stay, and then ask specificly everyone;s opinion about that campground....cool?
 
not bad for a friday afternoon golf outting with plenty of brews and some more here at the homestead huh?

Dear Lord. While I realize you have a GREAT sense of humor, I was hoping that this year you could find someone else to use as the punch line. Amen.

I know me and beiter didn't feel so good when we woke up Friday morning. I am not a big drinker anymore but something about the Bristol air. Before I knew it I had downed 6 Smirnoff's, 1 Moonshire Cherry, Several sips of the "Paint Can" and by that time I lost count on the jello shooters. But I can't wait until next year because............................IT IS BRISTOL BABY!!!!!
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE "TATER SALAD!"

Man, I guess I better stay away from Earhart East.  Sounds like a rough bunch of people.  Oh btw suz, the green apple jello shots was the best flavor.

Hey, I felt fine the next day.  Must have been that clean Bristol air or you guys are just getting old!   We need to start a count down to the spring race!

Ryan,

Hey man....I'm on the FAN ADVISORY BOARD AND LIVE in Bristol, and let me make a couple of recommendations...One if you are looking for a non-alcoholic campground check out www.valleycamping.com or another place that is located about 2 miles from the track that offers shuttles to and from the track is located near a lake and it's called www.lakeviewrvpark.com you can check out both places on the bristol motor speedway's website under camping/loding. Hope this will give you some insight....Have a good one!
