The old Athens Speedway used to have some killer corndogs. Late in the evening, they’d do a two-fer.

An ear of corn, grilled still in the husk over an open fire on a piece of chainlink fence then dipped into a coffee can full of "butter" at Road America, and these fries with ketchup, mayo and chopped onion at the Nurburgring.

I bet that chopped onion really elevated those Pommes frittes.

You have to order them as "pommes spezial" to get the onions and it's an extra .50 euro but worth every penny. They come with a tiny fry-sized fork,and whoever applies the ketchup and mayo has clearly studied their craft because the proportion and distribution are exceptional.

Honorable mention for Nachos at the Hyundai press tent.

Martinsville is legendary for their $2 hot dogs. I had one once but didn't know the drill and ended up with pretty much no toppings by accident. it was still good though, so I can only imagine that it's even better with all the bells and whistles.

Good to know. I do like to avoid tracks that serve only beverages.

Port Royal Speedway

The churches do the food. The hot sausages are great. They are bratwurst cooked on a grill with onions and peppers.  The rolls are toasted by pressing them on the grill.
