Last year, Guy Fieri was named Grand Marshall and did a cooking demonstration at the event pictured at left.
Monica from the Sprint Crew blogs of Nascar Blogs was at the Infineon Raceway this past Father's day weekend, and had a brief visit with Guy Fieri at the raceway.
I ran into the famous Chef Guy Fieri, who wanted to experience this race weekend as a true race fan and not celebrity. He camped out with a group of close buddies, cooking for other campers around him and even hand delivered food to the police officers on duty at the race. Fieri said jokingly, “I needed to make friends with as many law enforcement personal I as I could in the state of California!.” Ha-ha!
This painting pictured at right was auctioned for $5000 to raise money for charities in 2008.
Guy is in Houston, TX this week, taping for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. He is scheduled to hit Ohio in late July for the show.
But Lannae from Lannae's Food and Travel writes,
The word on the street is that Guy Fieri, host of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food TV Network will be filming at Melt, to showcase all the great grilled cheese options you can get there. Melt will be shut down for 2 days for filming, because the kitchen is way too small for the film crew, Guy and owner chef to be in kitchen at the same time and even fathom to carry on a normal day's business. What that means for you, if you are up there, they will need people to sit in as diners and patrons of Melt. Who knows, this may be your day for fame on TV!Read her review of Melt; sounds wonderful.
