It’s notoriously difficult to get in and out of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Traffic will be so bad for this weekend’s sold-out race, you might as well camp out. Since you’re not driving anyway, why not have a beer—or ten? Join us as we roam Indy’s campgrounds in search of the party.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway has everything from “glamping” tents in the infield, to RV lots, to people who’ve just pulled their RVs into someone’s yard. What will we find? Shenanigans, that’s for sure.

I’m sorry, but I would need at least a big ass diesel RV with three pull outs and luxury amenities to “camp out” at a race. Why, you ask?

Because I'm not some dirty tent city peasant who uses communal showers, that's why. I also don't have enough money for the aforementioned luxury RV, so I won't be camping out there any time soon.
