RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Not a fan of NASCAR? There’s another race going on this Friday. One to fill your belly.

Richmond’s first food cart food court is rumbling into the River City this summer, and there’s a mashup of historic proportions coming to dinner too.

On April 27 in the parking lot of the Virginia Historical Society (VHS) at 428 N. Boulevard will host nearly a dozen vendors. They’ll be keeping it going all Summer long each Tuesday and Friday.

Adding to the rally excitement, the VHS will stay open until 8 p.m. offering Richmond families a side dish of Virginia history with their turkey burgers and truffled tater tots.

Here’s a list of some of the food truck vendors:

• Boka Truck: Asian-Mexican-American fusion takos with French technique and seasonal menus

• Sustenance Truck: Fresh, local, seasonal gourmet sandwiches, soups, and chef’s creations
