Roach Coach

It’s 9:30 AM and a white truck comes zipping into the TRB parking lot. Robin is behind the wheel honking the horn and letting the crew know the break truck has arrived. Robin Lynn Catering is a snack shop on wheels packed full of chips, cookies, sandwiches, pastries, drinks, and lots of other goodies that could get a waistline growing. Break trucks have been circling the race shops for so many years that you could say they’re a tradition. The “Roach Coach” is an unfortunate nickname the trucks acquired back in the day when these catering trucks didn’t used to be so, well shall we say – clean. It wasn’t uncommon to see roaches crawling around inside the food trucks. Times have changed and you now see nothing but cleanliness, but the nickname still lives on. (See Tony & Greg in pic)
