Chris Macarak - AKA: The Tire Guy, owner of On-Site Tires will provide his incredible Saturday night unique Brats ‘n’ Beer dinner with a variety of wonderful brats (in the past, it’s been rattlesnake, deer, elk antelope as well as traditional brats – who knows what Chris will cook up this year?  You will, if you attend!).  Support On-Site Tires with your business.  You’ll love On-Site’s personal and professional services at the track, business or home!

There will be beer-30 on both Saturday and Sunday.  Concessions at the track will be open for breakfast and lunch, but will not provide dinner service so if you are staying at the track make sure to pack food for evening meals.
