Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Chris Buescher visited Kansas Speedway today to help introduce new food items on the menu for this year’s races.

Buescher also participated in pre-race operations activities, including helping to stripe the racetrack.

“It’s OK 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, in the area that separated the track from the apron.

Buescher “joined” the Kansas Speedway operations team as they start preparing for the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on May 11. Buescher, from Prosper, Texas, has competed at Kansas Speedway several times, placing sixth in 2017 at the Hollywood Casino 400.

“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 and Americrown, the concessions provider at Kansas Speedway, also unveiled four new menu items today. The new menu items include:

• 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.
• Pizza.
• Open-faced sandwich – Garlic bread topped with meatballs, marinara and mozzarella.

“These all look so great and I can’t wait to try them,” Buescher said. “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.
