Darlington Raceway To Host Speed & Feed BBQ Cook-Off And Car Show Event November 8-9
DARLINGTON, S.C. (May 30, 2013) – Darlington Raceway has always been known for its great racing, but on November 8-9, 2013, she will welcome some of the top BBQ teams in the southeast to the Pee Dee for the inaugural “Speed & Feed BBQ Cook-off and Car Show.”
The event, which will be sanctioned by the South Carolina BBQ Association, one of the premier BBQ organizations in the country, will feature top BBQ cook teams vying to win the coveted $2,500 first-place prize, while also earning a spot in the World Food Championships, held in Las Vegas, Nev. in November 2014.
The Friday and Saturday event will be open to the public with BBQ sampling taking place on Saturday, Nov. 9.
“The Speed & Feed BBQ Cook-off and Car Show will be a fun and unique event that is coming to Darlington Raceway on November 8-9,” track President Chris Browning said. “Because of the fact that teams are competing for a spot in the World Food Championships in Las Vegas and a $2,500 first-prize, you can expect to see cookers produce some of the top BBQ in the region that weekend.”
Additionally, the Car Show portion of the Speed & Feed event will feature an open show of cars, trucks and golf carts on display for enthusiasts, along with a swap meet.
The car show, golf cart show and swap meet are being organized by longtime enthusiasts, Fred and Nancy Turner, of Florence, S.C. The Turners have put together successful car shows in the region for decades. Participants in the car show and golf cart show will receive cruise laps around the famed Darlington Raceway.
“We’re excited to bring a car show and also introduce a golf cart show to Darlington Raceway for this event,” the Turners said. “To be able to cruise around the Lady in Black in a car, truck or golf cart will be a lot of fun for our participants.”
Approximately 100 total awards will be handed out for the car (75 awards) and golf cart (25) entries and a portion of the proceeds from the car show will benefit Toys for Tots.You can keep up with all of the latest news from Darlington Raceway at DarlingtonRaceway.com, on Facebook at Facebook.com/DarlingtonRaceway and on Twitter at Twitter.com/TooToughToTame.
