Pit Spots, Tents & Camping – Planning And Reservations For This Year’s Fikse Wheels Pro Tour Summernationals

Reserving Your Pit Spot

As 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)!

If you know EXACTLY how much space you will need for your pit spot, please fax – or email – a complete drawing to the SKUSA office ASAP. The fax number is 951-491-0809 and email is  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it What to include on your pit request is described below. It’s a good idea to call after you send a fax, to make sure your request was received and is complete. Our phone number is 951-491-0808. Emailed pit requests will be replied to with an email confirmation upon receipt.

The price of all pit spots will be $.30/SF for the first 8 rows, and $.20/SF for the last 3 rows. The paddock area will be rows of pit spots 10’W x 50’, 40’ and 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., 10-14, 41-45, etc.), based on the pit map posted below.

NOTE: The event/class sponsors will receive priority pit spot placement, so be sure to note on your pit request if you are a sponsor, or if send an email to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  if you’d like information on becoming one.

Here are the items to include on your pit request drawing:
  • Full layout – with dimensions in feet – of your total pit area. PLEASE BE EXACT, AND DO NOT REQUEST MORE SPACE THAN YOU TRULY NEED. You will NOT be able to add space once you are pitted on the map.
  • Include exactly where tents will go, trailers, E-Z ups, VIP area, etc. NOTE: Toy Haulers/sleeping trailers will be allowed in the pits; however, a $50 camping fee will be charged in addition to the cost of the pit space. All other campers/RV’s will need to be parked in the designated RV area. NO Exceptions! See below for more info about overnight camping.
  • There will NOT be any electrical outlets active in the pits for this event.
  • Be sure to include space for trailer tongue and doors. Fire lanes must be kept clear.
  • Include a team name and a list of the drivers that will be pitting in the spot. NOTE: All drivers MUST be registered for the race before SKUSA will confirm your pit spot.
  • In the event that there are multiple teams in one pit area, a designated team manager/ representative must be named as the person responsible for tent and trailer placement. We will NOT pit teams unless and until ALL trailers are present.
  • Tell us your planned arrival date, taking into account the other events and practice schedule posted HERE.
  • Include your contact name and best daytime contact info (phone and email).
  • Tell us whether or not you’ll be renting a tent, bringing your own, or both. See below for vendor info. Please note: your pit spot must include an extra 5’ feet around your tent for the stakes.
  • Teams that want to be pitted next to our near each other MUST submit their pit requests at the same time – preferably on the same drawing.
  • NO passenger vehicles will be allowed in the pits, so please do not include them in your pit layout.
We will be in touch within 24-48 hours to confirm that each pit spot reservation submitted has been received. Then we will secure payment with you when we have you placed on the pit map.

Tents

The EXCLUSIVE rental tent vendor for this event will 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 space 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 NCMP

Overnight camping in RV’s and motorhomes will be allowed at this event in the RV row (row 11 on the pit map) for a nominal fee of $125/spot (20’ x 50’). Sleeping in Toy Haulers and/or Trailers will be allowed in the pits for this event in rows 1-10 and 12 at a price of $50 per trailer (in addition to the pit spot price). NOTE: As stated above, there will NOT be any electrical hookups available at this event. A faxed or emailed note is required regarding your camping 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 & Catering

There will be a food concession stand on site serving breakfast and lunch all 3 days of this event (Fri thru Sun), and outside catering companies will NOT be allowed to deliver in. However, 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.

Strict Fire Codes

SKUSA has strict rules regarding fire extinguishers and fuel for this event. 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 19th to guarantee sufficient supplies on site. All trailers will be inspected prior to pit placement to assure compliance.

Some teams may arrange to park early, if in town for testing or racing the weekend prior. Please add a note to your pit request with your arrival date.

Trailer Storage

Please add that note to your pit spot request to give SKUSA advanced notice. (Garage customers excluded.)

See you in Indiana!
