Missouri Speedway Adds RV Park
The Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., has added a 50-site RV campground for race fans this year.
Located just south of the pits, the new campground sits on nearly 80 acres and overlooks a four-acre lake that will be stocked with fish. Beyond the lake are 40-plus wooded acres, which over the next few seasons will have walking and nature trails developed therein, according to WhoWon.com.
Among the campgrounds amenities are toilet and shower facilities, dump station and potable water source.
There will be 12 sites with 30-amp hookups and water (no sewer) and 38 dry camping spaces all with graveled parking slots for the RVs.
"We are starting a bit on the conservative side with the number of sites," said Randy Bowman, general track manager, "but we have a lot of room to grow."
The cost for sites with electric and water is $35 per night and $20 for dry camping. All sites however have full use of the bathhouse. The electric and water sites are already sold out for the Diamond Nationals race in May and several other races are getting close as well. Special prices are available for tent camping as well.
The track is located 80 miles southeast of Kansas City.
