Catch The Excitement Of A NASCAR Race This Season
There’s nothing that can compare to the thrill and excitement then that of attending a live NASCAR event in the United States or Canada. It’s time to Discover NASCAR Races For Family Fun And Excitement in North America! If you have never been to a real NASCAR stock race day event, then this is something you definitely must consider attending this season.
Stock car racing at this level is an exhilarating experience like no other!
What’s neat about these races is that they are specially organized for families in mind. Long gone are the times when heading to a stock car race was for tough single men only, with a beer in each hand!
Today, there are all kinds of added attractions and entertainment set up at the race track, specifically designed for people of all ages. NASCAR Racing is really a fun filled family affair event.
Check out this cool video The ‘NASCAR Race Hub’ crew at NASCAR on Fox Television put together on a look back at some of the greatest and closest finishes in Daytona 500 history.

An added bonus for those that enjoy camping is you can plan a weekend to the races and camp right out at the track.
How cool is that!
One of our favorite tracks in the United States is in Phoenix Arizona. They offer incredible facilities for camping directly on site.
Such extras as
On Site Safeway Grocery Store
Free Hot Shower Trailers
Free Shuttle Tram Service to the Gate
RV Services and Camping World Store
Free Johnny on the spot toilet facilities

A Sea of Campers at the Race Track
If you have a unit thats self – contained, then spending a weekend camping at the races is the best! There’s no traffic line ups to deal with, and no early mornings trying to get to the track on time in heavy traffic.
You can come and go to and from the race track at your leisure with your track entrance pass.
My wife and I have been traveling to this race track for years from British Columbia, Canada. We’ve enjoyed flying down to Phoenix and staying at area hotels and in most recent years, driving down in our Class C Motor Home and camping out at the track.
I must say, you just can’t beat staying at the track for the weekend race events. It’s so great not having to worry about driving for the entire weekend racing events, having to buy groceries and much more!
NASCAR Racing For The Entire Family
You bet the whole family will love a weekend at the races! Tickets for most race dates are becoming much more reasonable, and packaged specifically for families in mind.
Unlike attending other major league sporting events where ticket prices are hugely inflated, NASCAR has taken the step to make attending a race affordable for everyone!

Whats also great is that you certainly do not have to be a race fan like me to enjoy these exciting events. The first time you attend a race, I am sure you will be asking yourself What took me so long?
Attending Race Weekend In Phoenix 2019
Over the years, I have enjoyed introducing and taking various family members and friends to the races for the first time. Most of these folks are your typical devoted football [NFL] and hockey [NHL] fans and thought I was crazy going to stock car races.
Well, when they arrived and experienced the excitement of premier level stock car racing, they were simply awe inspired!
When you experience 43 high powered race cars traveling inches apart at speeds of over 200 mph, it is simply exhilarating for the first time. Whats even more spectacular is watching night races under the lights, which is becoming more popular at most tracks each year.
The sites and sounds at night are fabulous!
So What Is NASCAR Anyway You Ask
Well, NASCAR stands for …
This organization was founded back in 1948. Today, over 1500 races are held annually at over 100 race tracks all across North America. With this many race times and dates held, stock car racing has become so popular, it is now the largest spectator sporting event in North America.
Today, an average crowd in attendance at a premier race event easily reaches over 150,000.
The overwhelming speed and thundering sounds of those high powered engines, the smells associated with racing, all add to the intense excitement of attending a live race experience!
Take along a pair of NASCAR Race Scanners or rent a set at the track and you can enjoy live television broadcasts and listen to your favorite driver talking to his crew members.
What other sport can you think of that allows fans to do that!
Tons of Exciting Things To Do at the Races
From Souvenir trailers for your favorite drivers, to a host full of exhibits and entertainment from major sponsors, it’s all at the track to keep you and your family entertained before, during and after the race!

As mentioned, one of my favorite places to attend a race is at Phoenix International Raceway, located just outside the city of Phoenix, Arizona. This beautiful facility is situated less than one hour from downtown and situatedin a beautifulArizona setting, surrounded by hillsides and cactus.
Most recently, the name had been changed to ISM Raceway. In 2020, it has now returned to what most race fans are familiar with … Phoenix Raceway!

The Best NASCAR Races To Attend
Recently, race dates have been included and held outside of the United States. Canada now holds sanctioned events annually and has become extremely popular. As well, races had also taken place in Mexico, which also proved highly successful.
For us Canadians, we have NASCAR Pinty’s Series, premier stock car racing series. It’s our national NASCAR racing series here in Canada.
Each year, I look forward to our annual trek to one of our favorite destinations in the U.S. We have enjoyed the racing experience for many years now and will continue to do so for many more to come. We have planned many family holidays specifically around these special events.
One of our most exciting trips was attending a race held at in world famous Daytona Speedway in Florida State and then setting off on a wonderful Caribbean Cruise holiday afterwards. It is easy to plan and do both, making for a fabulous family vacation!
