Canadian couple camps out for races at Charlotte Motor Speedway

-

Canadian couple Bernie and Charlene Lapensee are already camped outside of the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The pair wants to be the first inside for the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race on May 20 and the Coca-Cola 600 on May 28.

The husband and wife arrived in their camper on May 2 and plan to drive it back to Ontario, Canada after the races.

“It’s pretty quiet right now but give it a couple of days, people will start showing up,” Charlene said.

They’ve been coming to these races at the speedway since 2013.

“I like the sounds, I like the smells, I love being infield and just all that sound, the sights, the people,” she said.

Bernie is retired and Charlene runs a private cleaning company.  The couple’s camper has a NASCAR theme they’ve airbrushed on.
