Charlotte Motor Speedway Expands Partnership With Celebrity Chef Lorena Garcia

Celebrity chef Lorena Garcia will add spice the 10 Blockbuster Days of Racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway by providing fans with exclusive race day menus featuring her vibrant Latin flavors. As part of an expanded partnership with Charlotte Motor Speedway, the Miami-based restaurateur and one of the country’s top Latina chefs, worked with restaurant partner Levy Restaurants to introduce a pair of new menu items available at the track during the May racing schedule. Garcia will also present a signature healthy menu package in the track’s suites for the May 17 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race and May 25 Coca-Cola 600, highlighting dishes from her acclaimed cookbook, New Latin Classics.

This season’s partnership caters to race fans’ taste for bold regional flavors and expands on a successful debut last fall, when Garcia served up a pair of her favorite Latin-inspired dishes at October’s Bank of America 500. As a part of this season’s partnership, Garcia will appear at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Tuesday, April 22 to introduce her new menu.
“We’re fortunate to serve fans at some of the season’s most exciting races, and we want to celebrate each occasion by creating a one-of-a-kind fan experience,” said Charlotte Motor Speedway Executive Chef James Pierson. “As chef Garcia’s signature dishes showed last season, Latin-inspired cuisine really resonates with race fans, and we’re proud to expand our partnership to bring these favorite dishes to more fans in 2014.”
