Just drink a couple glasses of water before crashing to rehydrate your brain and you won't have a hangover...you may want to substitute water with a couple bottles of Gatorade or something like that...

EAT SOMETHING!!!! Find the happy medium where you feel good and then just try and ride it. If you keep adding to the "ride" your going to eventually crash and then bring on the hangover. You could make a "small" beer, 3-4% ABV.

There is no such thing at a nascar race. Especially on the infield @ MIS.

Good luck, and try to find someone sober enough when everyone crashes to force everyone to down bottles of water.

Any ordinary bitter recipe should do you OK, or a cream ale recipe should get you in the BMC but better market. Check out a thread on Dudes pub ale for a Boddington's style beer that should work too. I would suggest the cream ale for a NASCAR race I think, you'd have to mini mash it:

3.5 lbs. Extra-Light DME
2 lbs. 2-row
2 lbs. Flaked corn
0.5 lb. light crystal (20-40L)

Hop to 15-20 IBUs using any clean bittering hop, you can use one of the American C's and that should go OK, I like Mt. Hood a lot, very clean, but not your typical American citruisy hop.

Ferment with US-56, WLP001, or Wyest 1056 (Chico Ale yeast) and you're right there, about 5.0% alcohol. Back off on the extract if you want it still lighter

First my advice, Do a search on "session beer". What you're looking for is a beer you drink all day and not get TOTALLY plastered. That beer is a session beer. (It's an english or an irish term i believer)

Now a question, What about clay's recipie makes it a cream ale?

Nascar beer? Does that mean it has illegal additives to squeeze a little more juice out of your engine?
