Race car drivers like to try out different lines on the track during races, but today, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Chris Buescher could only focus on one line – the line separating the track from the apron.
“It’s okay if I make squiggly lines, right?” asked Buescher under the watchful eye of Kansas Speedway’s operations team as he wheeled the line painting machine on the track.
Buescher “joined” the Kansas Speedway operations team as they start preparing for the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on May 11.
“Kansas is one of my favorite tracks,” he said. “I’ve run a lot of laps here and had some really good runs, and something has happened. You could say that the track owes me something.”
Buescher’s duties didn’t end with the painting, though, as he helped Americrown, Kansas Speedway’s concession provider, unveil four new menu items, which will all be available at Kansas Speedway’s upcoming race weekend.
New menu items:
· Chimichanga Dog – an all-beef hot dog with pulled pork, deep fried in a flour tortilla, and served with a beer cheese dipping sauce.
· Fried Taco
· Open Faced Sandwich – Garlic bread topped with meatballs, marinara and mozzarella
“These all look so great and I can’t wait to try them,” said Buescher. “They may not be on my diet but I can cheat a little, right?”
Buescher and the rest of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series return to Kansas Speedway on May 11, while the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series returns on May 10.
