Big One

Talladega Superspeedway is turning the BIG Five-O this year and the “Big One on the Blvd.” is going to be BIGGER and better than ever! Along with a new lineup of fan competitions, NASCAR’s Party Capital is taking it back old school for the can’t-miss event on Friday, April 26.

Scheduled for a 7 p.m. CDT start, the “Big One on the Blvd.” will showcase a host of NASCAR’s biggest stars atop a Mardi-Gras style float, parading down Talladega Blvd. in the legendary infield. When the float reaches the Miller Lite Pavilion, the fans become the stars and participate in four outlandish, original “fan challenges” – overseen by NASCAR drivers and personalities. The games include:

Weenie in the Hole
Do you have good aim? Well hot diggity dog! Weenie in the Hole is just for you! Three contestants will face off to get as many jumbo hotdog weenies in the hole of their buckets before the clock runs out – using only their mouths! The contestant with the most successful weenie drops will receive $100!

Cake Stand
CAKE STAND, CAKE STAND, DO SOMETHING CRAZY!!! Three teams of three will attempt to devour a delicious Talladega Superspeedway 50th Anniversary cake while in keg stand position! Knees weak, arms are heavy? No problem, you can alternate with teammates! The first team to consume the entire cake will receive $300 and bragging rights!

Straight Arm’d and Delicious
Pour some sugar on me! In this straight arm relay challenge, three contestants will pour smoothies over their heads and try to catch as much liquid in their mouths as possible! Don’t swallow, because the contestant to fill up his or her designated bucket first will receive $250! You must be SMOOTH to win this competition!

BBQ Sauce Wrestling
BBQ Sauce Wrestling is back and better than ever! Four ladies will battle it out in a 500-gallon pit of BBQ sauce in order to capture their opponent’s flag! After two elimination rounds of best 2 out of 3, then an ultimate championship round, the BBQ Sauce Wrestling Queen will win a grand prize of $1,000! Are you saucy enough to take the challenge?
