SKUSA Pro Tour
|Pit Spots, Tents & Camping – Planning And Reservations For This Year’s Pro Tour SummerNationals at NCMP|
Reserving Your Pit SpotAs always, the toughest part for the SKUSA staff in organizing large events each year is pit layout and fitting everyone into the paddock!
This July will be no different, as our 3-day SummerNationals event at New Castle Motorsports Park in Indiana will likely see the largest participation yet for a Pro Tour weekend! ALL RACERS or TEAM OWNERS can do their part now by reserving the space they will need (as well as encouraging all drivers to get pre-registered for the event – before their classes cap out at 44)!
The price of all pit spots will be $.30/SF for the first 7 rows, and $.20/SF for the last 2 rows. The paddock area will be rows of pit spots 10’W x 50’D, 10’W x 40’D and 10’W x 20’ D, so your drawing should reflect multiples of these areas. Please also specify your top 3 choices for the pit spots you prefer (i.e., 15-20, 41-45, etc.), based on the pit map posted below.
Here are THE ITEMS TO INCLUDE ON YOUR PIT REQUEST DRAWING:
Facility MapFirst-time attendees will be impressed with this track and its facilities!
TentsThe EXCLUSIVE rental tent vendor for this event will again be Greenfield Tent Rental. Call Alan at 317-910-0351 to get tent options, pricing and to make arrangements. Their estimated tent price is approx. $.60/SF for tent canopies, and approx. $1/LF for walls. They also offer other rental items such as tables, chairs, food service items, and heating/cooling equipment. An add’l fee for set-up may be required by the tent company, so talk directly to them about your tent needs. NOTE: You will want to confirm your pit size and location with the SKUSA office prior to finalizing your tent rental, although it’s a good idea to check tent availability, space requirements and pricing right away in order to submit the most accurate pit layout.
On-Site Camping/RV Parking Available at NCMPOvernight camping in RV’s and motorhomes will again be allowed at this event in the 2 RV rows as labeled on the pit map -- for a nominal fee of $125/spot (20’ x 50’ each). Sleeping in Toy Haulers and/or Trailers will be allowed in the pit rows for this event at a price of $50 per trailer (in addition to the pit spot price), so please add this note to your pit request.
As stated above, there will NOT be any electrical hookups available at this event, and a faxed or emailed note is required to submit your RV spot reservation, just like the pit spot directions above. You will receive confirmation upon receipt of your camping spot request, and then we will contact you to secure payment via phone when we have your spot located on the map.
Food Concessions & CateringThere will be a food concession stand on site serving breakfast and lunch all 3 days of this event (Fri thru Sun), The Racers Grill located inside the New Castle Motorsports Park pro shop provides some of the best food served at any racing facility. For teams who wish to have meals catered in their tent, the New Castle team can provide anything from hot dogs and chips to prime rib. Call Donna at 317-462-3413 for advanced orders.

See SKUSA Rulebook section 10.4.1.3.1 regarding fire extinguishers, and note that NO fuel is allowed to be brought into this event (except by SKUSA, and no more than 5 gallons of generator fuel per trailer). All fuel will need to be pre-ordered or pre-purchased from SKUSA by Sunday, July 17th to guarantee sufficient supplies on site. All trailers will be inspected prior to pit placement to assure compliance.
