Track Names Four Hilarious, Unique Fan Competitions for Event, Set for Friday Evening, April 27

TALLADEGA, AL – There are exactly 50 days until the “Big One on the Blvd” at Talladega Superspeedway on Friday, April 27, and the anticipation for the biggest and best party in NASCAR is growing with a new lineup of fan challenges!

The wildest, most undeniable evening of fun, is part of the track’s tripleheader weekend which includes the General Tire 200 (set for a 5 p.m. CDT start earlier in the day on Friday), the Sparks Energy 300 for the NASCAR XFINITY Series on Saturday, April 28, and the GEICO 500 for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday, April 29.

The “Big One on the Blvd” is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start in the track’s infamous infield, featuring some of NASCAR’s biggest stars making their way down the notorious Talladega Blvd on a Mardi-Gras style float. The attention will then turn to the fans who will take center stage near the Miller Lite Pavilion and partake in four new, outrageously original “fan challenges” in which the drivers will oversee. They include:

  • Chop It Like It’s Hot – A unique eating contest where it’s going to take a team to finish off the biggest & most tasty pork chop you’ve ever seen. They’ll use no hands while the chop is tied to the other’s body. You’ll have to see it to believe it. The first team to successfully eat all of the pork chop will be deemed winner and receive $200.
  • Stick It To Me – In what is not a normal visit to the bathroom, this event will feature a host of two-person teams, utilizing rolls of toilet paper and a plunger in the most unique relay race ever. The contestant with the plunger must make their way to their teammate and grab the toilet paper roll with the handle of the plunger, then head back to drop the roll into their toilet. The winning team will take home $200.
  • NO BALLS – In a slippery, fun version of musical chairs, eight contestants compete using real tires and exercise balls. After each round, a chair (exercise ball on top of a tire) will be taken away. Whoever is left without a seat when the music ends will be eliminated. The winner will go home $100 richer.
  • Trap Queen– Four Ladies will run through a pit filled with 600 gallons of a mystery substance trying to obtain as much fluid possible in sponges attached to their body. Once they reach the other side of the pit they must squeeze the sponges to fill up their select bucket. First one to fill their bucket to the designated line wins the title of “TRAP QUEEN” and $500.
