Atlanta Motor Speedway is an oasis for race fans who want to spend every possible minute of the NASCAR weekend within shouting distance of the track. A new social venue, a money-saving camping package complete with tickets for all three days of racing, and an ultimate camping experience giveaway courtesy of Honda highlight this year's camping lineup at the 2016 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 weekend.

The Park Pavilion, similar to the Gathering Place which opened last year, is a center for race weekend activity, located adjacent to Bruton Smith Park, near the Blue parking lot. It features a large patio, a fire pit and picnic tables and is open to both fans and campers alike.

"The Park Pavilion is another feature we've incorporated especially with campers in mind," said Ed Clark, Atlanta Motor Speedway president. "It provides an inviting atmosphere in a convenient location for our camping fans to mix and mingle and share their race weekend experiences."

The Happy Camper Special is an all-new budget friendly camping and race ticket package option for campers attending the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 weekend. For just $275, the package includes a weekend space in the Legends RV Campground, two general admission tickets to Friday's Active Pest Control Qualifying Day and Saturday's XFINITY Series and Camping World Truck Series doubleheader, and a pair of tickets in the Lower Earnhardt Grandstand for Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. It's easily the best value for a complete weekend of both camping and high-speed NASCAR entertainment.

Atlanta Motor Speedway is again teaming up with Honda in 2016 to give away the ultimate camping experience during the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 weekend. The package includes one infield camping space for race weekend, four infield passes, four weekend pre-race pit passes, one $250 Camping World merchandise certificate and a Honda EU2000i generator. There is no purchase necessary to enter, and fans can register by logging on to www.atlantamotorspeedway.com/honda today.

Reserved camping areas at Atlanta Motor Speedway start at just $100, and options include tent and pop-up camping, coveted infield RV locations, luxurious lakeside spaces and even select trackside locations complete with full amenities, views overlooking the AMS oval and both grandstand and pre-race pit passes.
