The NASCAR Championship Week is fast approaching, November 6-8, 2020, at the Phoenix Raceway. For race fans, part of the thrill and excitement of race weekend is the fun atmosphere of tailgating on the grounds in trailers and RV’s. Oftentimes, this fellowship of sport is in fact the main draw.

Tailgating is a time-honored tradition and one of the best ways to enjoy sport. RV tailgating offers all the creature comforts of home at your fingertips while putting you in the center of the exciting energy involved in attending a live event. Watch the game from the roof of your RV while cheering along with your fellow fans. Or set up the perfect patio with tailgating essentials made up of loungers, coolers, corn-hole, and the live game. 

At Camping World, we encourage safe and responsible outdoor recreation in your RV’sTry some of these tips to tailgate safely this year, whether attending a Camping World Truck Series Race or any sporting event.

Stay in Your Lane 

Pun intended! Phoenix Raceway asks all campers to honor the 6-feet social distancing guidelines suggested by the CDC. This means staying at your RV’s and not wandering through neighbors’ camps. This helps everyone keep their RV’s a safe and controlled environment for themselves and their families. At this year’s NASCAR championship weekend, the campground has designed a one-way parking orientation that isolates each campsite’s outdoor space, giving everyone their own private open-air outdoor oasis

Keep Your Party Small 

Enjoy the tailgating experience with your closest friends and family, ideally those you live and isolate with on a day-to-day basis. When entering and re-entering the camping grounds, Phoenix Raceway will be conducting non-contact temperature checks.

Bring Extra Masks 

As a good practice, and a Phoenix Raceway rule, exercise caution by wearing a mask when leaving your campsite. While at your campsite with your group, enjoy the atmosphere as usual in your own outdoor space. But when walking around and participating in games and events, like the scavenger hunt, pedal party, or bingo, wear a mask as a consideration for the health of your group and others.  Camping World carries masks and sanitization kits to keep you and your rig safe.

Power up Your Outdoor TV 

It’s a good time to equip your rig with an outdoor TV. The NASCAR championship weekend will be streaming live concerts and, of course, the race. For those that don’t wish to go into the arena, a great outdoor entertainment system is essential. Amp up your patio gear with comfy camp chairs and extra tables.

Bring your Bike 

Bicycles are one of the best and fastest ways to ride around the arena and take in all there is to see and do. There’s no better way to zip around quickly and efficiently. Try picking up a foldable bike that packs up small and ports in RV’s nicely. Stay on the designated bicycle paths and wear a mask while riding.

Do an RV System Check 

Phoenix Raceway has closed campground restrooms and showers as a safety precaution. For this NASCAR event and other tailgating occasions, ensure your RV systems are in working order before you go. Check your freshwater pump before your trip to make sure you have adequate water pressure and no leaks. Ensure your waste holding tank is empty. Pick up tank treatment pods at Camping World and be sure to add water before adding in the treatment.
