REALLY FAST FOOD
Hot dogs and hamburgers they’ve got in abundance, but the Levy Restaurants chefs at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway keep coming up with new offerings, such as the BBQ Split that they’ll serve during the NASCAR races this weekend. You choose a barbecued meat and two of your favorite sides; it’s finished with two pickle spears and a cherry pepper, and you can drizzle with one of four sauces, $12.
