Fred-Track Owner and Peery, his son, track prep and internet admin.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Covid-19... Currently we are still allowing overnight stays at our facility. Per the Virginia Governors order, race tracks such as ours, are to remain closed. This does not mean we cannot allow safe parking for those that are on the road. I am not convinced that boondocking has anything to do with increasing the transmission of the Sars-Cov2 virus. Stuck in a major city with an outbreak is another matter. Having a mobile home is a blessing and we might all find outselves camped out in the desert somewhere, lol. God Bless.

Fred's Information:
I was born and raised right here in South West Virginia. Our family milked cows until the farm was sold and I headed off to Virginia Tech where I reveived a degree in Biology.
I followed this career for a while and decided that I wanted to get in to racing cars. With the help of a few friends we built and 1/2 mile dirt track that I run and operate today.
It's a great place to camp and an excellent time to check out one of our southern traditions.

Peery's Information:
Peery is the admin for most things computer and internet so it is possible to hear from one or both of us.
Peery works at the track on a weekly basis, doing track prep and fixing things that break.....
Peery races dirt bikes and promotes motorcycle races across Virginia. He travels with his finance Lori and their two Australian Shepards, Wendy and Dixie. They currently Travel with a 2018 Keystone Outback 324CG.

Wide open and plenty of space.

Only stayed one night but look forward to coming back to the area to stay a little longer and take in a race night. Easy access off of Interstate 81. We did not get to meet the host but communication was always prompt and clear.

Great stay!

Fred is a great host. Stopped by to welcome us and showed us several good spots we could chose from to set up. Easy on and off interstate but far enough to be very quiet at night. Saw a few deer on edge of parking lot.

amazing cupple

staying with this host was amazing, lol at least for my rig mate who loves racing. Fred even took us for a ride around the track. Fred is a hard work man that's for sure with an amazing sweet wife. Truly hope to see them again in our travels. Take care Fred with much love from Mary Mealer and Brian Carder.

Great Little Retreat

This was a great stop. Very relaxing environment Fred was a super host. I had a great chat with him and found his travel experiences very interesting. I hope we get the chance to travel through the area again and get to stop and see him.

Pleasant Stay

Awesome overnight spot. Very peaceful spot overlooking the track. My only recommendation when leaving the parking area, take the road you came up on, not the road to the left (south). I'm 12ft and just missed the wire and it's a rougher route. My mistake completely. So when headed up follow the owners directions and when you merge to the right, take the left road. Take that same road down 😁 Thanks again! We will stay again.

Easy access

Very close to freeway. Quiet & plenty of flat area to park. Didn't even have to do any leveling. Our very first boondicking experience. Thank you Fred!

race track stay

Last night we stayed at Wythe Race Way in Rural Retreat Virginia. It was a wonderful place to stay. Right next to the dirt track with a beautiful view of the mountains. Our host was a very friendly and interesting man. He showed us around the grounds and made us feel very much at home. would gladly stay there again.

A Lonely Night at the Track

We found our way to the track parking lot on our own as Fred was not there and he did not answer his phone. If he had added to his welcome message to follow the sign to the Pit Parking it would have helped us get situated. There is plenty of room and much of it is level. Clearly one would not want to be there for boondocking on a race day. As it is the track is otherwise closed during the time of covid 19.
We were very grateful to have a lovely quiet night by ourselves boondocking. We certainly would stay again if we needed a place in the area.
