This checklist is intended to help you remember some things that you may not have considered. We certainly didn't get everything on here, so feel free to add to it! Keep in mind that most races are on very hot days so keeping cool and hydrated is important! Beer will speed up dehydration. Be sure you are also drinking water while in the stands. We use this list when we go to NHMS in Loudon, NH. and the July race is usually very hot.

Here are some good food ideas we use when we go to NHMS:

 

Breakfast Sandwiches

English Muffins

Eggs

Sliced Cheese

Sausage Patties From Wal-Mart (These are the best!! They come in a large sleeve with about 18 patties)

 

Marinated Chicken and Steak

Marinade your meats a week ahead of time!

Buy fresh meats and let sit in fridge for 2 days in the marinade, then freeze.

Take from freezer and put right in cooler before you head to the race track.

 

Brats

We use Hillshire Farms Cheddar Wurst, but feel free to use real Brats

Cook peppers and onions on grill on tin foil

Cook brats in pan with beer

Serve in soft sub rolls with peppers and onions
