Fastest Food in America? "Good to Go" Food Truck Hits Track at Atlanta Motor Speedway
ATLANTA, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "Good to Go," a state-of-the-art food truck owned by Wind Creek Hospitality in Alabama, today became the first food truck to take the track at the historic Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Driven by Chef Paul Norton, "Good to Go" posted a blazing 4 minute lap time, only slightly slower than the average time of a NASCAR qualifier at 26 seconds.
"I have always tried to run a fast kitchen, but I never thought I'd be shaking and baking around Turn 2 here," said Chef Norton.
Ed Clark, General Manager of the Atlanta Motor Speedway noted, "Admittedly, 'Good to Go' was the only truck on the track, but that doesn't mean it is not a tough competitor. I had the shrimp and grits that Chef Paul cooked this morning and the dish was a winner, hands down."

"Good to Go's" home base is the Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Wetumpka in Wetumpka, Alabama (WCW). WCW and its sister property, Creek Casino Montgomery (CCM), are major sponsors of Friday's night race lineup for Atlanta Motor Speedway's NASCAR Labor Day race weekend event. They are the official casinos for NASCAR's Sprint Cup new "knockout qualifying" event and are also sponsoring the Sprint Car Shootout that is held after the qualifying event.
Cody Williamson, General Manager of the Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Wetumpka where the truck is based said, "We are thrilled to be at the Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend and have 'Good to Go' actually take a lap on the track." He continued, "Our food truck is a way to share what is best about Wind Creek. It is also a rolling emissary of our values. Chef Paul and his crew use locally grown produce and products and travel to feed people in the bad times and the good."
