Atlanta Motor Speedway is opening its camping facility to those fleeing the path of Hurricane Ian.

The Henry County venue has once again opened its campsites, allowing refugees to pop up a tent, RV, or camper.

The facility can handle thousands of campers with hot showers and restrooms. It also has water, power, and sewer hookups.

Over the last few years, the speedway has hosted hundreds of campers who have been trying to flee storms like Irma, Florence, Doran, and Michael.
