RVers love motorsports, Part 3 – ‘Work camping, volunteering at the races’


NASCAR-GettyImagesEach year thousands of RVers follow their favorite motorsport from track to track.

Many simply enjoy the races, others volunteer and some help finance their RV lifstyle by working the events.

RVers have a myriad of options when it comes to jobs in motorsports, according to Workamper News.

“Most of these positions are support jobs at the tracks — before, during and after each event,” states the Workamper Web site.  “You can work one event or dozens. With a little creative planning, you can even combine your motorsports job(s) with a campground or other Workamper job.”

There is often a small army of RVers who are working the concession and souvenir stands, helping with parking and traffic control, and taking tickets at the gate.

SteveAnderson-WorkamperNewsCompensation can be a modest hourly wage and a camping spot. The downside is, because they are working on race day, most will not actually see the big race. They may, however, get a chance to watch practice and qualifying sessions on the days before the race.

According to Steve Anderson, owner of Workamper News, RVers sign up to work races because of “the love and enthusiasm they have for the sport, and just being at the event and living the experience through conversations and new relationships.”

In the final posting in the series “RVers love motorsports,” full-time RV couple, Donna and Wayne Roberson of Sutherlin, Ore., talk about their passion for sprint car racing.   To read the complete 4-part series click here.
