Saving Money at a NASCAR Race

Posted on 07/21/2011

NASCAR races are like no other sporting event… hearts pound, seats shake, and vision blurs as cars speed around the track. The season is speeding along and many races are still on the calendar for NASCAR 2011. If you want to attend, but don’t want your budget to crash and burn, review these ideas for saving money at NASCAR races.

Get Going Now - Don’t wait to make your NASCAR plans—get going now. Tickets sell quickly and more affordable rooms tend to be the first to go. For instance, discounted rooms near upcoming races in Pocono and Indianapolis have already been snatched up.

Research Ticket Package Deals - If you know what race you want to attend, go straight to the venue’s website. One example is in Charlotte. At you’ll find plenty of ticket offers and promotions for upcoming NASCAR events. Right now they’re offering a “buy three, get one free” deal. When you buy three tickets in the East Grandstand you’ll get the fourth free.

Look for Race Tickets on eBay - NASCAR enthusiasts say that eBay can be a great way to find discounted tickets for upcoming races. According to a report on, search multiple ways to find the best deals. Instead of simply searching for “tickets” try searching for “seats.” Search for various keywords because if a listing isn’t posted accurately it can mean you’ll score a better deal.

Stay at a Campground Instead of Hotel - If you really want a NASCAR experience, try staying at an RV resort or campground. You’ll find yourself surrounded by a community of passionate NASCAR fans, which could be even more fun than the race itself. At you can get a free stay for every reservation booked during in-season. Use them for yourself, or give your free dates to a friend.

Pack Snacks and Drinks - According to NASCAR pros, most of the tracks allow ticketholders to take snacks and drinks inside. This will save you some serious cash at the concession stand and keep your budget right on track.
