Tailgating in The Racing World

Monday, September 20, 2010 @ 01:09 PM

This weekend I went to Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. This was not a big race weekend pre-say. It was not the Nationals with a lot of spectators tailgating. This was a typical weekend or racing for racers and their families.

Some of these people came for the weekend. Some just came for the day. I met lots of cooks and tailgaters though. There will be a larger event happening in 2 weeks. Many of these folks were testing their cars and getting them ready for the big event. Some were there just racing against each other for money.

I plan on interviewing some of the tailgaters that I met, at the larger function. They all seemed to be quite willing to talk about their fare. One group I met with had just finished breakfast with a skillet on a table top propane grill. One gentleman was grilling some marinated pork chops on a small charcoal grill. One group that I met, was totally gearing up for the day. They had a few cars together and were planning on feeding a big crowd. They had a charcoal grill, already grilling up some sausages. A woman was getting a whole mess of drumsticks ready to deep fry in their outdoor propane deep fryer. They had a nice big BBQ smoker made out of a 50 gallon drum, and when I walked buy later on, I noticed that they had deep fried some french fries as well. I can’t wait to see what they will have cooking for a weekend long event!

So, stay tuned for The Shakedown at E-town. There will be more info & more pictures to come, and maybe a few tips and recipes as well.
