It depends on how far you want to go. I live north of the race track in Florence Ky, and there are lots of good places up here.

I have tix to the race but I am heading to a competition instead.

If you are ok with driving towards the Florence area, let me know and I will give you some suggestions.

Florecnce is a good drive and there is going to be wall to wall people and i think they said something about closing some exits down there like maybe 71 to 75 north???? I would pile up with food in cooler and once there just eat what you took there.

Yes we made it only missed the first 90 laps of the race! Just ridiculous! Last weekend we went to Indy for the Brickyard Got there for a prerace concert all the way to the checkered flag and back to our relatives in less time than waiting for Kentucky.
