Charlotte Motor Speedway goes gourmet

CONCORD, NC (WBTV) -

It's race weekend again at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

In the field, diehard fans from around the globe cheer at the roar of the engines.

They will party with tens of thousands of people.

Outside the field, in a completely different setting, spectators can also rev up their engines.

Speedway Dining Club Executive Chef feeds thousands of people on and off race days.

"The day of the race we will feed about 1100 people," said Chef Pete.

"In here, I have five suites where we will feed about another 500 people, downstairs we have a concessionary for our grandstands and we will feed another 3000."

But whether you are a newbie to the races or an old time fan, Chef is hoping to satisfy your appetite during the Bank of America 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

"If we don't have something that is not on the menu, I'll be glad to make sure you get fed while you're here," said Chef Pete.

"Because that's what it's all about."

That is just one of the benefits when you're a member of the speedway club

"As you can see over my shoulder this is a great view of the track, a great view of the world's largest HD video board," said the Executive Director of the Speedway Club George Kail.
