When you visit us on race weekend, our main goal is to make sure you enjoy your stay in our lots as well as have a blast on the property. To ensure that happens, we need everyone to follow a few simple rules and guidelines.

Please familiarize yourself with the list below to enhance your race weekend experience, and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at (800) 441-RACE.

When You Arrive: Go to Lot 1 during hours of operation, except Champion's Gate, Trackside Camping, Turn 1 Camping and Turn 3 Camping customers. All customers arriving after hours will report to Lot 1 and park until registration re-opens. Vehicles must park with the exhaust (tailpipe) to the road and must fit within the spot (minimum 20-feet by 40-feet). Site sizes may vary. No vehicles may be staged on Speedway property prior to the RV lots opening.

Quiet Hours: Enforced from midnight-6 a.m. Loud music, large gatherings and unruly behavior is prohibited during this time.

Generators: Properly ventilated generators can operate at low decibels, with no disturbance to neighboring sites, at all hours. In an effort to safely combat the dangerous effects of carbon monoxide, vehicle and generator exhaust must be expelled safely into roadways and not into adjacent campsites. We reserve the right to prohibit generator use at any time if it is deemed disruptive or unsafe.

Self-Contained: All RVs must be self-contained and must feature on-board sanitation facilities (except in Campground Lot 9). “Self-contained” is defined as having on-board potable water storage, a cooking stove, a water or chemical toilet permanently attached to the black water holding tank, and a permanently installed holding tank for gray or black water.

Tow Vehicles: Four (4) tow vehicles permitted in Campground Lot 8XL, two (2) tow vehicles permitted per RV parking space in Campground Lot 6, Campground Lot 7, Campground Lot 10 and Trackside Camping. Only one (1) permitted in Geico Campground Lot 2, Campground Lot 9, Turn 1 Camping, Turn 3 Camping and Champion’s Gate. Parking stickers must be adhered at time of arrival.

RV Moving: RVs are not permitted to relocate once Speedway personnel have assigned a spot, or another Lot fee is required. If guests move their RV from their initially assigned space, the Speedway is not responsible for holding that space.

Avoid These Potential Problems: Contained fires must be above ground in an approved container. Monitor propane tanks, barbecues and watch for carbon monoxide issues. Keep fire lanes and roadways open at all times. Vehicles blocking safety areas may be towed at guest’s expense. Observe all signs, and obey instructions from Speedway personnel. At night, use extra caution due to lack of lighting. In wet weather, be aware of spots with poor drainage.

Parking: Parking is at your own risk. Please lock your vehicle at all times.

Responsibility: Please be responsible in the consumption of all alcoholic beverages.

Pets: All pets need to be harnessed, leashed or tethered when outside of your RV. Please clean up after your pets.

Be Good Neighbors: Please be courteous to other guests. Remember that you are responsible for the behavior of the visitors that occupy your spot — whether you are in attendance or not. We reserve the right to remove anyone from the property, without refund, if their behavior is deemed offensive, poses a hazard to others, or violates any rules or regulations. Anyone that does not adhere to Speedway rules and policies is punishable up to and including permanent revocation of your spot.

Rules: The Speedway reserves the right to add or change rules without notice. Any decision interpreting or enforcing these policies is at the discretion of Speedway officials.

Parking In Main Car Areas: RVs are not permitted in the general car areas at Dover Motor Speedway including the North, South and West lots.

Spaces: No roping off, blocking or saving spaces is permitted.

Tents: You may not bring your own tent to camp (except in Campground Lot 9).
