The site itself has covered and paved area for camping. There is no electricity on site and it gets dark at night so plan accordingly. There are port-a-potties, trash dumpsters, and potable water from a garden hose as amenities.

For a less rustic experience there are hotels, restaurants, and full service campgrounds in town within a mile from the site.  

The nearest reliable auto parts store and tire store is 30 miles away in Morton. Make sure to bring any spare parts you need. We recommend you bring as many mounted spare tires as you'll need.

Spectators

The SCCA insurance rules require everyone who enters the site to sign a waiver. Everyone is legally considered a 'participant' in the event. If you want to come watch there is no charge but you must sign the waiver. Non driving participants may watch from the grandstands but may not enter the grid, course, or other areas consider 'hot' at any time unless they are working in an assigned work position. Anyone behaving in an unsafe manner will be directed to leave the premises immediately. The grid and course areas are OFF LIMITS to children and pets during competition. All pets MUST be leashed or otherwise restrained. No drugs or alcohol. Respect the site by throwing away your trash and behaving in a manner that best reflects the drift community.
Minors - ALL MINORS (under 18 years old) must have a minor waiver filled out with a parental signature or they cannot be allowed in the site. To get detailed information on the insurance waivers and to print out the minor waiver form, click here.


Media
Anyone who wants to photograph or video tape the event and have access to the course must be approved by the event chair.All photographers must have their own assistant that will serve as their SCCA required safety spotter. The spotter must accompany the photographer at all times while shooting footage in a 'hot' area. Any photographer found in a hot area without a spotter will have their media access suspended for the rest of the event. The photographer must provide copies of the photos or videos taken during the event to the event chair within one week of the event for use on the NWR SCCA drift web site. Credit will be given to the photographer. Posting images online is strongly encouraged and reference to the NWR SCCA Drift program is appreciated.

Notes

Here are a few things you need to know about SCCA Drift events before you come.

Everyone works
The SCCA is a non-profit volunteer organization. This means we rely on volunteers to plan and staff the events and allows us to have events by drivers for drivers and keeps event fees low. That is why the rule is that every driver must complete their assigned work assignment. If you do not complete your assignment you will not be allowed back to future events. Don’t worry, helping out is fun and we do our best to put you into your preferred work position.

Drive nicely on the way to and from the event.
When driving to and from the event it is absolutely imperative that you obey all speed limits and traffic laws within 20 miles of the site. Any excessive speeding or aggressive driving could result in the loss of use of the site so drive slowly! We must positively represent the sport to everyone in order to ensure a successful future.
