CONCORD, N.C. — If you've spent more than a few nights camping at a race track chances are you remember what it's like when those old musty, dirty clothes in the back of the camper begin to emit a foul odor.
But Charlotte Motor Speedway has come up with answer to improve the camping experience and make it ... well, a little fresher.
In the category of what-will-they-think-of-next, CMS has installed a new All & Snuggle Laundry Pit Stop outside of turn one in the Tim Flock Campground.
And the price is right, too – it's free.
While fans are washing their clothes they can visit the family entertainment zone, which includes corn hole games for adults, games for kids, watch movies and eat popcorn.
"A lot of fans come in kind of skeptical, like what's the catch," Jody Bennett, the senior vice president for Aquarius Sports and Entertainment, said in a release. "They can't believe it's really free. But after we show them around and explain that it really, truly is a free service courtesy of All, Snuggle and Target, they love it."
The laundry mat has been open for six hours a day since the track's "10 Greatest Days of Racing" began last week.
The laundry mat provides free wash, dry, fold and delivery services. They've also been giving away coupons and Snuggle mini teddy bears and Snuggle products.
"It's been a lot of fun," Bennett said in release. "And we haven't even lost a sock."
And as for that stinky camper?
Well, that problem appears to be solved.
