Pit Spots, Tents & Camping – Planning And Reservations For This Year’s Pro Tour Winternationals at NOLA

Reserving Your Pit Spot

As always, the toughest part for the SKUSA staff in organizing large events each year is laying out and fitting everyone into the pits!

This year is no different, as our WinterNationals event at NOLA in Avondale, LA will see large numbers for this event's inagural running! ALL RACERS or TEAM OWNERS can do their part now by reserving the space they will need (as well as encouraging all drivers to get pre-registered for the event – before their classes cap out at 40)!

If you know EXACTLY how much space you will need for your pit spot, please fax – or email – a complete drawing to the SKUSA office ASAP. The fax number is 951-491-0809 and email is  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it What to include on your pit request is described below. It’s a good idea to call after you send a fax, to make sure your request was received and is complete. Our phone number is 951-491-0808. Emailed pit requests will be replied to with a confirmation upon receipt.

The price of all pit spots are as follows
  • $.50/SF for spaces 1-43 (tent staking allowed in spots 1-14 only)
  • $.40/SF for spaces 44-103
  • $.30/SF for spaces 104-190
  • $150 per space for RV's (no hookups)
  • $50 to Camp in your Toy Hauler/Trailer. PLUS the pit space cost.
Please specify your top 3 choices for the pit spot locations you prefer (i.e., 23-27, 133-136, etc), based on the pit map posted below. We will do our best to accommodate you.

2017 WinterNats Pit Map

Updated: 2/26/2017

NOTE: The event & class sponsors will receive priority pit spot placement, so be sure to note on your pit request if you are a sponsor, or if you’d like information on becoming one. An emailed request for sponsorship information can also be sent to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Here are the items to include on your pit request drawing:
  • Tell us whether or not your team will be racing the weekend PRIOR with the Texas ProKart Challenge, and if your driver list or pit spot needs are different than those submitted to them. We BOTH need our own pit requests from you directly, based on the directions posted herein.
  • Full layout – with dimensions in feet – of your total pit area. PLEASE BE EXACT, AND DO NOT REQUEST MORE SPACE THAN YOU TRULY NEED. You will probably NOT be able to add space when you arrive.
  • Include where tents will go, trailers, E-Z ups, VIP area, etc.
  • Include space for trailer tongue and doors.
  • Include a team name and a list of the drivers that will be pitting in the spot. NOTE: Please send your pit map when it is absolutely final. All drivers MUST be registered for the race before SKUSA will confirm your pit spot location. In the event that there are multiple teams in one pit area, a designated team manager/ representative must be named as the person responsible for tent and trailer placement. We will NOT park teams on site unless and until ALL trailers are present.
  • Teams that want to be pitted next to or near each other MUST submit their pit requests to SKUSA at the same time with a specific note on each drawing telling us that preference.
  • Include your contact name and best daytime contact info on your drawing (phone and email).
  • Tell us whether or not you’ll be renting a tent, bringing your own, or both. See below for vendor info.
We will be in touch to confirm each pit reservation submitted, and will secure payment with you when we have you placed on the pit map.

NOTE: NO passenger vehicles will be allowed in the pits, so please do not include them in your layout.

The EXCLUSIVE rental tent and rental equipment vendor for this event will be Gulf Coast Tent Rentals. Tents are approximately $1.15 per square foot and walls are $3.00 per linear foot.  They can also provide tables, chairs, lights and more.  NOTE: You will want to confirm your pit size and location with the SKUSA office prior to finalizing your tent rental, although it’s a good idea to check tent availability, space requirements and pricing right away in order to submit the most accurate pit layout.

There is Absolutely NO Staking of tents (other than pit spaces 1-14)  Gulf Coast Tent Rentals can also rent blocks to tie down your tents.

Trailer Storage

If you have a trailer that will be used for transporting karts and equipment only, and does not need to be parked inside of the pit area, there will be a $25 fee to store it in a secured outer lot of this facility. Please add that note to your pit spot request to give SKUSA advanced notice.
