NASCAR @ DELAWARE SPEEDWAY: "Ted Reader Tailgate Zone" added to NCATS event on June 6

Free area for race fans to be located in tent overlooking Turn 1

London, ON (May 29, 2009): The official team known for working with award-winning chef and food entertainer, Ted Reader, will be at Delaware Speedway for its inaugural NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race on Saturday, June 6th. Though Reader himself will not be on hand, his barbecue team equipped with Ted’s brand of fun and flavour, will be holding court in the “Ted Reader Tailgate Zone” the day of the race.

Reader and his team have parlayed a passion for food into a culinary tour de force that includes more than a dozen cook books, shelves of food products, live culinary performances, TV and radio cooking shows and appearances as well as culinary demonstrations, a catering company and teaching. Reader’s latest book, “Napolean’s Everyday Gourmet Grilling” was released last month.

At Delaware Speedway, Reader’s team will use his trademark barbecue rig to “Tedify” the track’s standard menu for guests in the licensed “Ted Reader Tailgate Zone,” which will be located on the turn one hill, overlooking the front straightaway. The area will also feature live music from the band “Black Belt Jones” and is free with race admission (Age of majority required).

More information about Reader, his books, recipes and food products is available online at

The appearance is being made possible through an association with Napolean Grills, who will also have a taste-test display in the NASCAR Midway area both Friday, June 5th and Saturday, June 6th. Napolean-sponsored driver, Jason Hathaway, will be signing autographs at the Napolean Grills display on the Friday night. Hathaway, a former Delaware Speedway Street Stock champion and APC Late Model Rookie of the Year, will compete in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race on the Saturday night (June 6th).

Spectator gates will open at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, June 5, with racing set to start at 8:00 p.m. The program for that evening features the only 2009 appearance of the wildly popular winged Auto Value Super Sprints, along with Delaware Speedway’s Demar Aggregates Trucks and POWERADE Modifeds, both of which are part of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (i.e., weekly racing).

On Saturday (June 6), spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. Pre-race activities include a 50-lap Delaware Super Stock race and a NASCAR Canadian Tire Series driver autograph session. The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series “Delaware 200” is schedule to take the green flag shortly after 8:00 p.m.
