Have you ever stopped to think just how many sports involve racing of some sort? Racing, as defined by Wikipedia, "is a competition of speed, against an objective criterion, usually a clock or to a specific point. The competitors in a race try to complete a given task in the shortest amount of time." Racing in Chicago is ubiquitous. Year round, there are 5k runs, half marathons, NASCAR, IndyCar, boat races, bike races... all types! While NASCAR was in the Chicagoland earlier this month, Kids Wish Network granted a boy his wish of meeting NASCAR driver, Tony Stewart. With the help of his wish coordinator, Tyler also got a taste of some good ol' Chicago deep-dish pizza from Lou Malnati's.
In June, the National Hot Rod Association made its way to Chicago for a weekend full of speed. Along the way, Toyota Racing Top Fuel drivers Morgan Lucas and Antron Brown visited Lou Malnati's to get a first-hand look at how we create our delicious deep-dish and to taste-test it themselves.
Don't get us wrong, we love football, baseball, basketball, hockey - but there's something about racing that gets your blood pumping and makes you anxious about who will cross the finish line first.
