BlackTop Nationals: Perfect place for hungry car fans

The big BlackTop Nationals  classic car and bike show, which draws more than 150,000 people from more than 20 states to the areas in and around Century II, is coming up this weekend.

And organizers have come up with a trendy method for feeding the crowds: Food trucks.

Instead of the River Festival-style food court the event had its first few years, this year, the BlackTop Nationals will have local food trucks and other vendors stationed throughout the event all three days.  No matter where they are at the show, attendees should find some mobile food nearby.

Among the trucks signed on to participate are B.S. Sandwich Press, Big Daddy’s Smoked Shack Meats, Chino’s Parrilla and the new Cajun food truck, Vautrot’s Cajun Goods. There will also be lemonade, root beer and funnel cake folks set up as well as Chris Cakes, the famous purveyor of pancakes and link sausages.

The food vendors will be serving from 3 to 9 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
