New Jersey Motorsports Park Hosts Food Truck Festival for Second YearLast Edited:
The New Jersey Motorsports Park is known for its action on the track, but on Saturday, May 5th, the vehicles at the event stayed parked.
People of all ages raced out to Millville to get to the second annual New Jersey Motorsports Park Food Truck Festival.
Whatever your taste buds were looking for you could find it there, from Asian to barbecue, breakfast to dessert, and everything in between.
“There [are] a lot more food trucks than there [were] last year. It’s really nice that there’s so many different options," said Caitlin Nicke of Dividing Creek. "You can have something hot, something spicy, something sweet, something just as a snack, or a pretzel [or] you can get a full meal here.
"There’s so many people, and it’s a good crowd, everybody is happy, smiling. You’re enjoying yourself today.”
About 20 different food trucks set out to win the coveted title of Best Food Truck, but there wasn't just one trophy that the participants were trying to win.
Two trophies that were being awarded at the event were made by Cumberland County Technical Education Center (CCTEC) students. They were the People's Choice and Judges Choice awards.
SNJ Today's Nina Contento and Mike Frankel were on the panel of judges and set out to taste as much food from the food trucks as they could and rate them.
Kono Pizza took home the People's Choice award, and Baby Blues BBQ Philly won the Judge's Choice award.
The day was also filled with games, monster-truck rides, axe throwing, racing on the track, vendors and of course, tons of food.
“The food truck festival is just awesome," said Naren Gosine, of Baby Blues BBQ Philly. "The race cars, even monster trucks — I’ve never seen a monster truck up close in my life.
"This is the first time I’ve been here ... this is awesome. One of my favorite festival spots so far.”
