Blackhawk Farms power and camping questions

Do I need to bring a generator to run tire warmers or do they have places where I can plug them in the pits?

Also, can someone explain camping at the track to me? I've never done it before since Putnam doesn't allow it. Just bring a tent and a sleeping back and whatever else I need to the track on Friday night?

I don't remember seeing electric outlets, but camping is allowed almost anywhere in the pits.

I've camped there the night before any events I went to for free.

as far as power I know they charge (I think)20 at the racing events but not sure if they charge or not at track days

there are outlets available on most of the buildings. blackhawk charges something like $15-$20 for electricity usage though... most people pay in advance, some people wait to pay when the facility folks stop by to question whether or not they've paid....

Electricity is $20 for the weekend, you pay Cindy in the "Corner 10" shop. Or else you can pay the security guard.

There is power available on the pole kitty-corner from the tower, also outside the pavillion, tech shed and garages.

Camping is anywhere in the paddock area. There are lots of good places for tent camping.
