Who’s looking forward to Saturdays now that college football is in full swing? In Georgia, there’s nothing like riding around Athens to see all those Georgia flags waving from almost every car. You haven’t done anything until you get the chance to tailgate, whether it’s with friends, family or complete strangers. It doesn’t matter your race, color, creed or any of that because you all share the same passion which is food, fun and football. Some people may ask, what exactly goes on at a tailgating party? You have great food, fun games and of course; we talk about anything football related. For me, the one-stop shop to pick up all your tailgating needs has to be at your local RaceTrac. Below are a few items you can get at RaceTrac to make your tailgating experience goes smooth.
What’s a good tailgate if you don’t have food? Guess what, RaceTrac has everything you need like the hot dogs, which are great. If you’re looking for a much healthier option, don’t worry because they have you covered also. RaceTrac offers fresh sandwiches, wraps and salads that are delivered daily with high-quality. You can get an American Sub, Chicken Salad Sandwich, Chipotle Chicken Wrap and the Classic Turkey Swiss with Tomato.
Despite it being the beginning of October, it’s still pretty humid down here Saturday afternoons. RaceTrac got you covered when you’re in need of something to drink. If you’re taking the kids with you, RaceTrac offers up to 30 different fountain options and up to eight frozen drinks. For all my beer drinkers out there, RaceTrac is always well-stocked with your favorite beer. Many of the RaceTrac stores offer a selection of locally crafted beer, so you can support brewers around you.
We all know that whenever we leave home, often times we forget something. RaceTrac has everything from coolers; propel tanks, ice, utensils, hats or the all-important selfie sticks.
One of the great things about attending the tailgating event was chanting with Joe Cahn. He’s known as the Commissioner of Tailgating, who’s been to over a thousand college games and visited all the NFL stadiums. Throughout his journeys across America, he’s had the chance to meet some great people and host a number of tailgating parties. Did you know that 74 percent of Americans consider grilling items “must-haves” at a tailgate? According to a tailgating survey conducted by RaceTrac and Harris Poll that nearly four out of five Americans have attended a live sporting event. If you break that down, most likely most of those people probably tailgated, and if you haven’t, you’re missing out on a lot of fun. RaceTrac is the answer to all your tailgating needs, like I mentioned before, and they have the stats to prove it. Do you know that nearly 81% of the people polled by RaceTrac believe you should never arrive empty-handed to the party?
Did you know that 78% of Americans want a variety of beverages? Whether its water, beer, drinks or something that’s frozen, people tend to want a beverage. When it comes to tailgating or anything else, I like to plan everything early. It seems like I’m not alone because 77% of Americans would purchase supplies prior to leaving for the event. As a matter of fact, get your water bottles, ice packs or coolers early from RaceTrac so you won’t have to rush towards the end of the week. With so many people going to these games, it’s been said that nearly one in five Americans should begin four hours before the sporting event.
Are you ready for Saturday? Are you planning to tailgate? If so, what game will you be attending? Make sure you head to RaceTrac to pick up your needs and check out Joe Cahn to pick up some knowledge on the art of tailgating.
