Food Selections

NASCAR fans can try Delaware-themed food selections ranging from scrapple to crab cakes as part of Dover International Speedway’s 50th Anniversary celebrations.

The offerings are presented in collaboration with Delaware on Tap, the Delaware Tourism Office’s smartphone application guide to the state’s craft beverage makers. The free download from the App Store and Google Play connects more than 30 breweries, wineries, distilleries, meaderies and cideries, features information on events, tours and transportation, and offers a free prize to users who visit 10 sites.
