Column: Eating in the fast lane at Auto Club Speedway

Friday’s column (read it here) is about the food at the Fontana racetrack. I participated in a taste test that wasn’t quite what I was expecting but was probably more enjoyable than anything else I’d have come up with to do Thursday (like Upland’s state of the city event).

And click here for an embarrassing, but blessedly short, video of me eating a sandwich. Sforza sprung the idea on me and started filming. I focused on chewing with my mouth closed. There are reasons I’m a print journalist.

    But . . .but. . . you make no mention of any deep-fried anything. No deep-fried beer or Kool-Aid or Coke?

    No corn dogs deep-fried with chocolate and marshmallow toppings?

    What a ripoff. That’s it. I’m not going.

    I’m kidding, of course. I share your lack of enthusiasm for any type of auto racing. It’s horses or nothing for me.

    But good luck and safe running to those who are drivers and fans.

    [I suspect a person could find all those items at the speedway, just as they could at the fair. And good luck to them. — DA]

    LOL, you call THAT video embarrassing? I have two boys with cameras, let’s just say I don’t go out in public much anymore.

    [Thanks for putting things in perspective, Dee! — DA]
