Dinner With Racers - Where To Eat

Dinner With Racers - Where To Eat

02Sep 2016

*Retrace the steps of Ryan Eversley and Sean Heckman and eat where the racers do on "Dinner With Racers".


When we sent Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge driver, Ryan Eversley, and Sean Heckman, partner in TMB Creative, Inc., out for a 30 day road trip, we didn’t know what to expect. They told us they’d like to get to know some racers better and in order to do that, they needed to do a 30 day, 8,000 mile road trip in an Acura fitted on Continental’s CrossContact LX20 tires. They said if they talked with these racers over dinner…they’d get the real scoop. And that’s just what they did.


So, 20 states and 26 conversations later, we had “Dinner With Racers”. Dedicated to long-form, unstructured conversations, Ryan and Sean meet up with drivers, engineers, team owners, business types, and media stars across a number of motorsport disciplines including IMSA, InydCar, NASCAR, Global Rally Cross and more. But you can’t have “Dinner With Racers” without the dinner.


So where did Ryan and Sean eat 26 meals? We cooked it all up into one list…right here…for you! Check out these favorite eats of racers across the US. And tune into an episode (or two) of “Dinner With Racers” while you’re on your way there.
