Picture is not a representation of what is offered.

This year, for the first time, ‘glamping’ in the infield will be offered to fans at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

What is “glamping”?  Just fancy camping. Glamorous camping, really. IMS has found a way to glam it up for those fans that are looking to be close to the action but also want a bit of the plush side of life.

Most guys would never admit to “glamping” or even consider a guys weekend spent “glamping”.  But if the lady in your life is more luxe than not, “glamping” is the way to go.

Indy 500The IMS is offering four levels of packages starting at $650 and topping out at $1100. All include 4 nights and 5 days of “glamping” for 2 to 4 people. Packages include tickets to Coors Light Carb Day (last year’s Carb Day headliner Poison rocked the IMS infield and this year promises to be just as amazing), Legends Day (honoring the amazing Mario Andretti) and, of course, the Indy 500.

If you really wanting to pamper your lady, get her the “Queen Package” that includes a 10’x15′ tent with a queen size bed, nightstand, table and chairs. For those more frugal “glampers” there’s the “Four Cot Package” which has the same amenities but with four military style cots in lieu of a queen bed.

What makes it even more “glamporous” is access to private showers and restrooms just for you and fellow “glampers”

We’d be letting you down if we didn’t mention that we have some amazing products to go along with your “glamping” vacation. Take a look at our exclusive comfort chairs to add even more plush to your “glamp”, and remember to get enough seating for those glamorous friends you might meet along the way.

Slacker Stool- 1389V

"I now keep one in my car ready for any type of activity where sitting is preferable than standing. You can insert your own activity here. The size make this easy to grab when in doubt, and has often served as a life saver.

Easily stored and low-profile. Almost no bigger or heavier than an umbrella. You will not complain taking it with you and will be rewarded by being rested and comfortable when you get up."

    Joey Chair- 7789V

    "After owning this chair for a little more than half a year, I can confirm that this chair is all-around amazing. It is extremely comfortable and it is pretty light weight.

    As others have mentioned, the feet outperform other chairs that have straight feet in the sand. The feet design allows for the chair to sit on top of sand rather than sinking in.

    My friends are always jealous when I bring this chair to the park (which is every time, since its so easy to pack). So much that we often end up taking turns on it 
    If you're debating whether or not to get it, do yourself a favor and just buy it!"

    Big Kahuna- 599

    "Awesome sturdy comfortable chair. I don't know why but I am the King Champion of breaking folding camp chairs. I am 6'2" 295lbs and have broke many 300lbs rated chairs, one chair cut up the back of my knee pretty good when it failed.

    My son is 6'7" 325lbs and plays major college football, he has not even come close to breaking as many chairs as I have. Well the Big Kahuna Chair is rock solid and comfortable I don't ever see this chair failing. If it ever does I'll post it."
