Sit at the Speedway Club at Charlotte Motor Speedway for a year, and you'll see 300 races, from NASCAR events to amateur ones. That's thanks to the eatery's panoramic views of the racetrack, a vista that's best paired with the culinary team's gourmet American cuisine. The location might lead you to expect a tire garnished with basil, but the dishes are even more upscale than that. Plates range from juicy cuts of steak with herbed lobster butter to citrus-rum–glazed salmon. Even the casual dishes show the chefs' creativity, such as a burger topped with bacon and tabasco-fried onions.
