I am going to be hauling my car out to AZ for May 5-6. I am considering either NASA at PIR or SCCA at Firebird. Which seems like it would be better for racing etc. Do either allow you to camp in the paddock? I have a 40' trailer with sleeping qtrs. so I would like to stay at the track. Any info is appreciated. I realize there will probably be more competition at the SCCA Race.

Thanks,

Both allow you to camp in the paddock. As you know SCCA will have some SM competitors. NASA most likely will have none. If you go to the NASA event I'd consider it more just track time, although you might find someone in your group to actually race with. Most people prefer PIR over Firebird as it's a nicer facility, but Firebird is not bad. Firebird is closer to the city if you want to venture away from the track. Have fun.

Not as standard. Depending what track they are running and which paddock they are using, there is some electricity you might be able to tap into. You ought to find out what track and what paddock as that can make a difference.
