Ty Dillon is having one heck of a year and we’re just loving it! Fourteen races into the season and Dillon is sitting comfortably in third place while compiling nine top-10 finishes along with five top-5’s in stock car racing’s second-tier series. The kid is hot, and as Summer heats up, we expect him to get even hotter as he makes a solid case for advancing to a full-time ride in the sport’s top series.
As you can probably tell, Race Day is a big thing in our home. We’re fortunate that on most weekends from February through November, there’s a race to get excited about and cheer on our favorite driver. We’re also fortunate in the sense that as over-the-top “foodies”, it gives us a regular opportunity to devise a menu of delicious goodies that are not only delectable, but fun to prepare as part of our usual Race Day theme.
For our most recent Race Day, we prepared yet another duo of zesty appetizers to help get us to Victory Lane – “Race Day Pigs-in-a-Jalopy” and “Pit Road Buffalo Dip“! Though delicious, both lean a bit to the “spicy” side of the spectrum, which is something we love. But that doesn’t mean it always loves us.
I must say we don’t eat like this often. After all, race days are special and I admit, we tend to go a little overboard. It’s typically a day we throw caution to the wind and make food fun again. It’s a day of indulgence or shall I say, “over-indulgence”. And when that happens, an unexpected bout of heartburn can quickly turn a great day miserable. Been there, done that.
