No matter how unique your taste buds are, Charlotte Motor Speedway will have many food options to choose from during the next two race weekends.
During Tuesdays Red Carpet Rookies event, menu items served included Krispy Kreme bacon cheeseburgers, tacos, specialty potatoes, funnel cake baconator, salad and ice cream.
Chef Shawn McFalls said he and the director of operations sit down in the spring and use trending foods to create new menu items for the Speedway.
After the items are created, they are served to track management staff and property staff to sample. The food then slowly begins to roll out through race time.
Front Porch Creamery in Mooresville created an ice cream flavor exclusively for Charlotte Motor Speedway. The Speedway had a Facebook competition for fans to name the chocolate swirl ice cream with chocolate chunks. The winning entry was Burnout Blast.
McFalls said his favorite item served at the track are the potatoes in the Spuds and Suds stand. These giant baked potatoes weigh 24 ounces, and sell for $7 or $8 depending on which type is purchased.
The taco spud features taco meat, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, cheddar cheese and green onions. The nacho baked potato has nacho cheese, jalapenos, sour cream and crumbled tortilla chips. The stand serves a butter, bacon and cheddar baked potato. The fourth spud option is buffalo chicken.
The track will also have a Danica Patrick stand, also known as Fit Fuel. This features healthy eating options, including chopped vegetable salad, veggie burgers and turkey burgers. The stand also paired up with chef Lorena Garcia, who is one of the top Latina chefs.
The Speedway has worked with Garcia over the past year, all of the sweet menu items are her recipes this year. Garcias fish taco and pork carnitos tacos will also be sold at concessions.
Gluten-free hot dogs and gluten-free beer, among other gluten-free items, will be available on the main concourse.
McFalls encourages spectators to check the fan guide to see where these options are sold, as they will not be available at every concession stand.
I have no idea what led to this dessert/savory combination trend, but I think it is gross.
But I was raised on the West Coast and was (and am) appalled when I saw people putting maple syrup on waffles/pancakes AND bacon AND eggs.
I have always said I will try anything, but this abomination would try my patience (but if dared I would take a bite).
Not sure if I can do the cheese in the donut. But it does look disgustingly yummy.
needs more bacon...
I read “bacon” in the title....BACON.......now I’m hungry.
Danica Patrick needs more bacon.
Suicide by food. That is HORRIBLE.
Something For EveryBody?What a”Novel”Concept!I LIKE IT!!!!
We still live in a country where we’re free to clog our arteries. This may not always be the case, someday we may find ourselves in “Grease-easys” (a Rushism).
This meal is cardiologist approved... well, at least by Dr. Cohen who has 4 kids in private college simultaneously and really needs the cash from sextuple bypasses.
Auto racing, doughnuts, bacon ...
Deep fry it to perfection and now you’re talking.
I can attest very good stuff, Not as good as Blue Bell but way better than the rest of the ice creams out there.
Just buy it at the grocery store because at the store front it's very spendy. 2 double dip cones were $8.00+
It's like $5.00 for a 1/2 Gallon at the grocery.
Gotta have something to wash it down with.
The Krispy Kreme burger thing started at the NC State Fair IIRC.
I’ll personally pass on it.
Now pair the doughnut with the ice cream stacked on a cone and I’m in.
I’ve never cared for beer, so I’d have to drink Diet Coke.
It looks wonderful to me. I’m trying to remember the last time I ate a doughnut or a potato, and I can’t.
O.K. I think this is still America and one can choose what they want. The 1st wookie better not try to set food standards at a NASCAR event.
LOL! That would be a poor choice.
Maybe that would de-bitchify her. Couldn't hurt.
