Car racing and barbeque — is that a no-brainer or what?
Coffee and crepes — a little more complex equation, but it is working…
The ISM Raceway is waving the green flag for barbecue. The Avondale track announced last week a partnership with Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q.
Rudy’s is now “the official barbecue of ISM Raceway.” Rudy’s Trackside will be located in ISM Raceway’s midway.
“Rudy’s is a fan-favorite locally, especially here in the West Valley since their Goodyear location is just a few miles from the track,” said ISM Raceway President Julie Giese.
“Our fans and the industry make a point to visit Rudy’s during their time at ISM Raceway so having their barbecue available at Rudy’s Trackside at future events is a perfect fit for everyone.”
Rudy’s Trackside opens at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Camper Appreciation Night will feature a $5 barbecue sandwich special.
The venue will also host live music each night Thursday through Sunday starting Nov. 10.
Barbecue breakfast? Why not: Rudy’s Trackside will open each morning at 8 beginning Friday, Nov. 8, serving barbecue breakfast tacos. Fans can also place delivery orders from the GEICO Gecko Campgrounds with Rudy’s Goodyear location throughout the entire weekend by calling 480-663-6311.
“Rudy’s Trackside is unlike anything we’ve ever done,” said Andy Jenne, area director for Rudy’s, “We are very excited to serve real Texas barbecue to the NASCAR fans here at ISM Raceway.”
The caffeine and sweets combination is proving a winner at Colados Coffee and Crepes, which launched in Goodyear Oct. 16.
Berni and Yesica Reina opened the first Colados five years ago in a 1,200-square-foot space at Indian School Road and 107th Avenue in Avondale.
The new 4,500-square-foot Colados is in the Goodyear Centerpointe plaza on the southeast corner of McDowell Road and Pebble Creek Parkway. The address is 15479 W. McDowell Road, Suite 109. Colados is open in Goodyear 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays.
Good luck parking, as this has already become a hotspot.
