What’s Happening?

When fans go out RVing and camping at a NASCAR race, they need to eat at some point, and they often can’t make the long walk to a race track concession stand or food truck. This is where RV recipes come in, and these are some fun, NASCAR RV recipes.

  • Most RV recipes that are used in a typical campground can be taken to a NASCAR campground. For this list, we will focus on some of the easiest recipes, and maybe find a way to add a NASCAR flare to them.
  • These recipes can elevate fans camping/RVing experience. Since most NASCAR tracks are far from city centers, it is important to eat at a campsite.
  • Fans love coming up with unique recipes while camping. These recipes can also go to a normal RV/camping trip, not just a NASCAR race.

1. S’Mores and Hot Dogs


  • Skewers
  • Hot Dogs
  • Buns and Condiments
  • Marshmallows
  • Graham Crackers
  • Chocolate

We start the list with traditional options. All fans need for this are some skewers, hot dogs with assorted condiments and buns, and marshmallows with chocolate and graham crackers. While these are far from the most exciting items, they are always present around a campfire or frill.

2. Cooler Corn by SuburbanWifeCityLife

Ingredients/Equipment (Full Recipe Here)

  • A cooler
  • Boiled Water
  • Shucked Corn

Corn on the cob in a cooler? SuburbanCityWifeLife says it is indeed possible, and NASCAR campers can do so by boiling water, and pouring that water into a large cooler with corn. The cooler keeps the water warm similar to how it keeps cool things cool, so, fans can make corn on the cob without having to use a large oven. All you need to do is boil water and cover the corn with it in the cooler for 20-30 minutes, and there’s corn on the cob.

3. Campfire Mac and Cheese by Laurenslatest

Ingredients/Equipment (Full Recipe Here)

  • Elbow Pasta
  • Alfredo Sauce
  • Cheddar, mozzarella, and Parmesan Cheese
  • Half and Half
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Aluminum Pie tins
  • Grill/Grate

Mac and cheese is always a popular dish for families, and it makes for a great side dish for other main courses. This one uses many of the same ingredients as mac and cheese, but, they are placed in aluminum pie tins and roasted over a campfire. It might be worthwhile to test whether or not regular mac and cheese recipes could be cooked using this method.

4. Camping Quesadillas by Cupcake Diaries Blog

Ingredients/Equipment (Full Recipe Here)

  • Medium Flour Tortillas
  • Grilled Chicken Breasts
  • Salsa con-queso
  • Black Beans
  • Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
  • Tin Foil
  • Grill/Grate

Another home favorite is done at a campground thanks to some aluminum foil and a grate over a campfire. This one is cooked by placing the quesadilla in tinfoil over a campfire and grilling after placing all of the ingredients inside the typical quesadilla. While this can be done on a stovetop within a camper/RV as well, this can be a great substitute if there are no hookups at the campground. Not every campground at a track has electric hookups.

5. Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos on Taste & Tell

Ingredients/Equipment (Full Recipe Here)

  • Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
  • Eggs
  • Hash Browns
  • Cubed Ham
  • Cheese
  • Cilantro
  • Old El Paso Green Chiles
  • Tinfoil

This can be very convenient for early mornings at the track. The idea here is to make the burritos beforehand and wrap them in tinfoil. Once it’s time to cook them, pull them out of the fridge and roast them over a campfire or grill. Imagine baking some breakfast burritos over a campfire in the infield as an early Cup Series practice session rolls on at the track.

These are just a few recipes that can be taken both camping/RVing at the track or in general. Be sure to try these out at the next NASCAR camping trip.
