When we think of America’s favorite pastimes – professional sports – we think of the irresistible stadium food we get to indulge in. In my home city of Boston, people flock to the Red Sox games to pass the tradition on of eating a Fenway Frank to their young ones. It is no different with motorsports at the upcoming NASCAR Weekend here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The gates will open to the fans on Friday morning with the mouth-watering smell of burgers, tacos, and more.
Where else can you find Chicago-style Italian food, Japanese burgers, Hawaiian snow cones, cupcakes and soul food within walking distance? That collection of around-the-world cuisine puts any baseball park to shame! NASCAR attracts a variety of fans, so it is only fitting that we give them that same variety in their stadium-style food. Here is a list of the different food trucks that you can find at the midway this weekend: Red Neck Kitchen, Curb Side Café, Quality Food Service Catering, Chi-Town Hustler, Sin City Wings, Haulin’ Balls, Sheff’s Kitchen, Fuku Burger, Snow Ono Shaved Ice, Foxxy Lady’s Cupcakes, and Sloppi Jo’s.
Levy Restaurants assembled the group of food trucks and also caters for 102 luxury suites. They provide guests with hospitality, as well as exceptional meals such as basil grilled shrimp, gourmet antipasta and hoisin-glazed baby lamb chops. This year, they have raised the bar by accommodating guests who cannot ingest foods that contain gluten. Celiac disease has become a growing issue in the United States, and is thought to affect around one in every 105 people in our country. Having an aunt that suffers from Celiac, I understand the challenges and disappointment this disease can cause. I am excited that Levy Restaurants has worked hard to accommodate every NASCAR fan. The Wellness/Gluten-Free Stand will be located in the Petty Terrace (the first stand as you enter the Richard Petty Terrace from elevator No. 8) and will offer gluten-free and healthy choices, including BBQ chicken salad, chicken salad wraps, gluten-free pizza, gluten-free beer, gluten-free crepes and gluten-free chips. They also will offer healthy kids’ meals (juice box, carrot sticks, grapes and a turkey hot dog).
