Hamilton, Ontario (PRWEB) January 18, 2007
NascarCamping.com, an interactive website with a photo gallery, track and campsite listing, regularly updated blog, and other resources of interest to the race and motorcoach enthusiast, now supports a fully functional message board. "In order to bring together those with a passion for the sport and love of RVs, we have launched our own bulletin board," says philanthropist and website founder Chris Ecklund.
According to Mr. Ecklund, the NASCAR experience itself is an automatic community-builder. "I have met people from around the world at NASCAR events, and it is especially nice to meet fellow Canadians who make the annual trek south for the winter," he says. He adds that some races draw such huge crowds that the camping areas become small cities for the week: at Indianapolis in 2006 almost half a million fans showed up. "At each race we end up meeting great people who become friends, and we all end up chasing NASCAR racing together."
NascarCamping.com is an online replication of that heady, exciting experience. Even after the races conclude, enthusiasts can still keep the memories vivid by accessing the website to see a stream of photos shot from amazing angles, read blog posts from Mr. Ecklund, enjoy track stories submitted by other site visitors, and participate in the new message board.
The online forum is a long-anticipated site feature. Fans can post race stories and photos in real time, sell or exchange passes, provide detailed information about individual track facilities for those who have never been to the location in question, and arrange to meet up. Over time, the forum can become an invaluable trip planning aid.
Ecklund understands his site visitors' dedication. "There is nothing like bringing your rig in and parking it 50 feet from the track and seeing the cars go by at 180 m.p.h. The noise, the feeling of horsepower, the smell of exhaust, the excitement in the air, where else can you go to get a fix like this?"
