Camping

Camping is a great race tradition and we offer camping at all of our events.  Camping is FREE, with the exception of Steele Creek, Loretta Lynn’s and Snowshoe.  These rounds are hosted in regular campgrounds and camping fees will be charged by these facilities.

Primitive Camping is available at all events. This means water and electric are not available, so come prepared.  We do have port-a-lets at all events.

Spots cannot be reserved in advance and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Camping in the Pro Pit area is restricted.

Gates Open 9:00 am Friday.

Gates Close each night from 12:00 am – 6:00 am.  Guests will not be admitted or permitted to set up their sites beyond posted entry times. 

Noise Curfew

Our good neighbor quiet policy begins at 10:00 pm. Quiet hours are in effect until 6:00 a.m.  No loud generators please.Be courteous to your fellow racers – they need their sleep too.  

Campfires

Grills and small contained fires are permissible. Fires must be contained and above ground in an approved container no larger than 20” in diameter. Grills and fire containers must be removed after the event weekend.  Due to the large number of guests and the close proximity of the rigs, we cannot permit open non-contained campfires.

Fire Extinguishers

All motor homes/camping vehicles and pit rigs in excess of 20’ should have fully functioning fire extinguishers readily available in the event of an emergency.

Parking

RV's must be parked accordingly.  Fire and Safety personnel must be able to see in all camping areas for safety reasons.  Fire lanes must remain open at all times - vehicles blocking lanes will be towed.

Sanitation

State and county health rules must be obeyed (waste and wastewater must be disposed of properly at dumping station).  Please be courteous and properly bag your trash and place it by the roadway for pick-up. Garbage barrels are not for personal campsite use.  Dumpsters are located near the front gate. It would be very helpful if you could transport your trash to the dumpsters. 

Sleep Safe!

GNCC Racing is a family activity, and one of the most exciting features is the opportunity to camp out and have fun with your family and friends.  However, if you are staying overnight in an RV or vehicle,  or using a generator, you need to be aware of the dangers of Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning.  CO is a poisonous, colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that can be released when burning gasoline, kerosene, oil, propane or wood.

Mind your vehicle and generator exhaust while in close proximity to your family and neighbors.  Do not place your generator directly under a slide-out or under your vehicle, where the fumes can seep into the camper.  Make sure all exhaust fumes are properly and fully vented, so that they do not become trapped or seep into your sleeping quarters.  When sleeping in a van, car or truck, make sure the exhaust is unobstructed if you run the engine for heat.  Even when sleeping outdoors under the stars, make sure you are not too close to an exhaust.  Devastating consequences can result without proper ventilation.

What to do if you suspect someone has been poisoned:

When you suspect CO poisoning, promptly taking the following actions can save lives:

  • Move the victim immediately to fresh air in an open area
  • Call 911 and notify track officials immediately.  Numbers to call are:

John Knox (412) 298.8854

Dean van Leeuwen (724) 372.2348

Dan Reinhart (724) 884.5728

  • Administer CPR if the victim has stopped breathing.  (Be careful not to expose yourself to fatal levels of CO poisoning when administering CPR).

Know the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.  For more information, please visit the United States Environmental Protection Agency page on Carbon Monoxide.
