Waiting for Campground Opening is Fun for Speedway Campers

Bobbie Foster spent almost four days parked on the side of a road. In that time, she read a book, got a suntan and painted her toenails red.

An orange piece of paper with No. 1 scribbled on it made the wait worthwhile.

The campground at Kentucky Speedway opened promptly at noon Thursday - 56½ hours before the scheduled start of the Meijer 300 for NASCAR's Nationwide Series - and leading the procession were Foster and her fiancé, Joe Adams. The couple from Dayton, Ky., arrived at 1:30 p.m. Sunday with a new camper hitched to a teal Chevy pickup.

"He went to work, and I sat here," Foster, a fan of driver Carl Edwards, said. "It is very much worth it to be No. 1 because you get a prime spot."

Many folks spend the weekend in the rolling pasture that becomes a Woodstock-like setting for fun-loving NASCAR fans.

The campground boasts 1,000 spaces that can accommodate cars, campers and high-end motor coaches. Each rectangular spot costs $30 for the weekend.
