  • Reduced seating and camping capacities

  • All guests (age 3 and up) will be required to bring and wear mandatory face coverings*  

  • Guests will be directed to specific, spaced-out parking lots 

  • Each guest will be screened prior to entering the event gates; initial screening could include questions regarding current health status and potential exposure and/or a non-contact temperature check
  • A sequenced entry/exit procedure into the facility property/gates will be used to minimize large concentrations of personnel or guests  

  • Multiple handwashing and hand sanitizing stations placed throughout the operating areas and entrances  

  • A “Clean Team” of staff, clearly identified for guests, cleaning or disinfecting at all times  

  • Clear bags, up to 18 inches in size, will be allowed. These bags can contain pre-sealed and packaged food and beverage items, including alcohol  

  • No glass containers of any kind will be allowed  

  • Limited “Grab 'N' Go” economically priced concessions, as well as limited track/NASCAR merchandise, will be available for purchase via cashless transactions 

  • Limited tailgating is permitted on property prior to the event with your individual group in your individual parking spot, while maintaining distancing (no tents or grills)   

 

*For guests who may need an accommodation in order to comply with any facility rules and/or protocols, please contact our Guest Services team when you arrive on property for further information.




MASKS

As with our essential personnel and competitors, fans in frontstretch and backstretch seating will be required to wear masks while on property.

DISTANCED SEATING

The Darlington Raceway team has reseated all grandstand guests. A maximum of 6 seats grouped together will be allowed. 

   

New seating assignments (if applied) will be sent in advance of the weekend. All tickets and admissions will be delivered digitally via Tickets @ Home.

RESTROOMS & CONCESSIONS

In terms of restrooms and concessions, all locations will maintain physical distancing and more frequent cleaning across high touch locations in operating areas. 

There will also be no buffet or self-serve options at concession locations. There will be limited menus and limited food preparation onsite, as well as physical barriers between the guests and food service operations. Finally, anyone involved in food preparation will undergo the same screenings as employees.

Camping Safety Protocols

CAMPING PROTOCOLS

PRACTICE DISTANCING 

Please keep in mind, these are extraordinary times, and while we want to continue to bring fans out to the races, we must do so in a safe manner. Hopefully soon we will be back with social gatherings, but in the meantime, please respect those around you and remain at your campsite. 

  • Camping guests will be instructed to stay in their designated reserved space and distanced from other campers. 

  • While in the spot and remaining distant from other camping guests they will not be required to wear a mask, face shield or other face covering.  

  • Face coverings must be worn anytime a camping guest is not in their campsite. 

  • Signage will be visible throughout the campground regarding protocols camping guests must abide by. 

  • If camping in an area where there is an empty spot adjacent to your assigned spot, guests should not use the empty space for parking, gathering or any other activities. 

  • Entertainment that promotes social gatherings is not allowed; stages, bars, compounds, circling the wagons, DJs, live bands, loud sound systems, etc. will be strictly prohibited. 

  • Grilling is allowed at your designated site with your individual group. 

  • All campground restrooms and shower facilities will be closed. Camping spots are for self-contained RVs only. 

   

MASKS 

While at your campsite, feel free to relax and enjoy the races as usual. When leaving your campsite, fans must wear a face covering at all times.

VEHICLE REQUIREMENTS

Self-Contained RVs Only

To reduce the potential for crowds in social or common areas, all camping spots are for self-contained RVs (motorhomes, 5th wheel travel trailers, and bumper-pull travel trailers) only. This requires each RV to have proper cooking facilities with an on-board power source, toilet facilities with on-board holding tank, potable water supply system including faucet, sink and holding tanks, and heating and/or air conditioning separate from the vehicle’s engine.

All campground restrooms and showers will be closed.

No Tent Camping

Because campground shower and restroom facilities will be closed, we are not able to accommodate tent camping for this event.

PROHIBITED ITEMS

If camping in an area where there is an empty spot adjacent to your assigned spot, guests may not use the empty space for parking, gathering or any other activities.

Entertainment that promotes social gatherings is not allowed for this event. Stages, bars, compounds, circling the wagons, DJs, live bands, loud sound systems, etc. will be strictly prohibited.

Guests will be asked to take down setups at infield camping spots that could interfere in any way with on-track competition protocols.

Displays of the confederate flag are strictly prohibited.
