Pits and Paddock
Parking: This is a large event and Thompson is relatively limited on space. To make sure there's enough room for everyone, consolidate your vehicles as much as possible. In the paddock, teams will be limited to a 20x40' area--we use spaces this size all the time, and it's plenty for an RV, your race car, and a tow or support vehicle. Anything that doesn't fit into that space will be directed to remote parking.
Overnight camping: Yes - Click the camping link on your Lemons online team registration page on the Lemons website (not the track link below garage rental on Thompson's own website). If you do buy camping directly from the track's website you'll be paying twice.
Pit-vehicle restrictions: Except for street vehicles coming to or leaving the facility, no motorized vehicles may be used on track property from one hour after the checker/on track running until sunrise. No firearms or fireworks may be used on track property. No "razor"-type scooters, skates, skateboards and motorized mini-bikes allowed in the paddock. Non-golf cart personal paddock vehicles (ATV's) are allowed in the paddock only. Golf carts may be operated anywhere on the facility.
Pit assignments: Be prepared to wedge your stuff into a 20' X40' box
