PLACERVILLE, CA (4-2-13) - When it comes to going to the races, much of the interest is to witness the thrills and spills of one of America's favorite spectator sports while enjoying some of America's favorite food with your family at the track. As the 2013 season opens this Saturday, Placerville Speedway fans will notice a new level of product to make their dining experience much better at the track.
Thanks to a new partnership with Strauss Wholesale Foods in Diamond Springs, nationally known Harris Ranch Beef and Evergood Fine Foods, a new line of products will be available to delight the heartiest appetites at the track each week. These new additions come after much collaboration between longtime local food supplier Jim Strauss and Placerville Speedway promoter Alan Handy.
Some of the new products coming from the track kitchen this season include Hamburgers, cheeseburgers and chili burgers that will now feature high quality Harris Ranch Beef along with new hot dogs and sausages from Evergood Fine Foods of San Francisco. Evergood Fine Foods is one of the strongest sausage companies west of the Rockies according to Vice President of Sales and Marketing Don Miller. Evergood has been family owned and operated since 1926. Makers of the famed "Giant Dog" at AT&T Park, Evergood has built its reputation on sausage products of superior quality and exceptional flavor.
Placerville Speedway is putting the days when fans had a choice simply a jumbo dog or regular sized dog behind them and will be offering a wide variety of tasty links to the menu this season. Among these choices will be Italian sausages, linguica, hot links, chorizo, polish sausages and more. Different varieties will be rotated on the menu throughout the season to add a variety for visiting fans.
All of Evergood Sausages and hot dogs use all natural casings to enhance the taste of the product. Your local racetrack is a great source of affordable family entertainment that allows a family to come to an event and have dinner while they enjoy the experience of local dirt track racing in their community. With these latest additions, that affordable night out with the kids can also offer something a little different that tastes great.
"These are brands that locally based Strauss Foods is now carrying to better serve their customers with the very best product," said Handy, who has personally tested each of the product with Strauss and the company representatives. "Jim Strauss is an icon in this county when it comes to food service; we are truly in good hands working with him and Strauss Foods."
