CONCORD, N.C. -- Customers are racing into Charlotte Motor Speedway's new Kangaroo Express, which was added to the track infield during major events this year.
The convenience store is winning fans -- even among well-known racing names, according to WCNC.
"It's a really neat deal going on at Charlotte Motor Speedway; a Kangaroo Express with all kinds of things for the race fans here on the infield," said Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton. "There are snacks of all kinds and drinks. You also have some beer for the guys and the gals later in the evening. There are a bunch of soft drinks, sandwiches and even breakfast for the kids."
Kangaroo Express, the leading banner of Cary, N.C.-based The Pantry Inc., is sponsoring Wade Burton's son Jeb Burton in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at the speedway today.
According to store manager Dean Warber, the infield location focuses on convenience for the fans.
"Our pricing is pretty much the same as at all of our convenience stores. There is any kind of beverage you can think of. We have water, ketchup, mustard. If a customer comes in and we don't have something they are looking for, we will take a note [and] we'll get an order and have it [at the next event] here," Warber told the TV station.
The store -- which is open 24 hours -- has delivery trucks that make daily trips to the track.
"This is a neat facility to have here for the fans that camp out. They can come and get what they need to have an enjoyable weekend," Warber said.
