I would suggest the Bristol race. They are tearing up the track as we speak and Bruton Smith swears it will be a GREAT racetrack again. I have suggested that, but DON'T camp there at the track. There is a campground about 1/2 mile away that is no alcohol. Much more "family friendly" than the track campgrounds.
You are reasonably close to many NASCAR options. Pocono, Dover, and Richmond off the top of my head.
I'm attending my first NASCAR + track camping event at Sonoma, CA in June. I don't recall seeing "Family Friendly" in the info packet. I figue what the heck, can't be much noisier than a WalMart parking lot.....

Thank you everyone for some great suggestions. This past year, we did camp down at Charlotte, NC at a local KOA to check out the Nascar Hall of fame (which was amazing!!-spent the entire day in there!) and saw the Lowes speedway. I will check out that website nascarcamping.com and see what else I can find. Yes, I do want to stay away from the alcohol-party related areas, I've heard stories from friends that I really don't want our kids to witness. The guy who suggested the Baltimore Grand Prix, that is different cars though right, not nascar? Just curious....thanks everyone for all the info.!!

Yes the Baltimore Grand Prix is differant from NASCAR but you still get to see Corvettes and other big cars but they race on a street course. On free day at the track kids even get to sit in some of the cars. It is a great way to get "up close and personal". Good luck.
