New menu items to be featured
The Quicken Loans 400 will soon be speeding toward the green flag, so fans will want to make a pit stop and check out all of the new food choices at Michigan International Speedway.
MIS and its catering partner Americrown have developed new food items for the fans this year – and these items are truly unique to Michigan.
The “Pierogi Burger” is a juicy new hamburger. But instead of a plain, cheese with grilled onions burger, a cheese pierogi has been added. A pierogi is a Polish dumpling, a delicacy with many of the local Polish residents of Southeastern Michigan.
Americrown has added also gravy cakes to the menu. These potato pancakes are topped with a chipped beef gravy, sour cream and green scallions, sure to satisfy a race fan.
Coney Dogs have become synonymous with Michigan. What a better way to watch a race at NASCAR’s fastest track than with a coney dog with real sauce, mustard and diced onions?
“It has been fun to work with Americrown to develop all the new items,” said MIS President Roger Curtis. “Food at an event is so important. And while we will continue to allow fans to bring in their own food in coolers for free, we know there are some fans who love that carnival-like food that you wait all summer long for.”
While food during the NASCAR races is important, food after the race is, too.
The all new tailgate package includes a beef tri-tip roast, baby back ribs, port butts, chicken wings, chicken thighs and jumbo hot dogs. The best part is everything is fully cooked. All you have to do is season it to your liking and heat the items up.
The 10-person package is $250 while the 20-person package is $400. You can feed 40 people for only $550. Invite your neighbors over and have a cookout.
All you have to do is simply call Brandy Escamilla at 909-429-5380 by June 5 at 5 p.m. and your package will be delivered to your campground on June 14.
Michigan International Speedway has more than 8,000 campsites and smells like one large kitchen as people cookout. Now Americrown makes it easy for all the campers with a special tailgate package that feeds 10, 20 or 40 people.
“We have always wanted something for the campers and we spent time discussing the perfect option,” said Americrown Executive Chef Paul Miller. “The tailgate package should be fun for campers who want to cook throughout the weekend. And the best part is we bring it right to your site.”
