FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky-grown food will be on the menu at Kentucky Speedway for the auto race on Saturday.

State Agriculture Commissioner James Comer says Kentucky Proud foods will be served to fans at Saturday's Quaker State 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and for the remainder of the racing season at the northern Kentucky track at Sparta.

Comer says the partnership with the speedway brings the Kentucky Proud program to a wider audience.

The food service vendor for the speedway says the chef will use honey from producer Ted Ratliff of Letcher County to serve with country fried chicken and biscuits. The honey will also be an ingredient in a honey mustard sauce and in a cocktail made with Jim Beam bourbon.

The speedway also will serve local Kentucky Proud produce.
