This past weekend, thousands of people braved clogged roads and crowded parking lots to watch NASCAR racing at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon.  But a small group of fans pitched tents in a grassy parking area for the duration. 

Camping on track grounds has been going on for a long time, but this is only the second summer it’s been legal.   Amanda Loder talked to some residents of this temporary village, and produced this audio postcard.
