Human Fuel Bring lots of snacks and water. Driving while hungry or dehydrated is not only uncomfortable, but it’s also unsafe. Food and drinks at the track are usually not healthy, won’t improve your energy level, and tend to be a bit expensive. We brought tortillas, meat, cheese, protein bars, fruit, nuts, and of course, water. For particularly hot or strenuous days, bringing a drink like Gatorade or Powerade will help keep your body balanced.
