Darlington Raceway will join the list of tracks offering “all you can eat” food and drink concession areas to its grandstands for its May 10 Dodge Challenger 500. Tickets start at $60 for adults for seats in the Colvin Grandstand in Turn 2 with unlimited hamburgers, hot dogs, soft drinks and snack items.
Fans who already have tickets or have seats in other areas can add the concession feature for $15 for adults and $10 per child under 12. The Colvin Grill area will be open two hours before the start of the race.
It maybe just one grandstand (and probably a grandstand that for what ever reason has a history of not selling out) but it does give the average Joe race fan a place to watch an all day event and not have to worry so much about spending over a $100 a person on food and drinks.
I would be curious to know what other tracks are making such an offering, but either way this is a step in the right direction.
