New Competitions Set for ‘The Big One on the Blvd’ at Talladega
Talladega Superspeedway’s 'The Big One on the Blvd,' is ready to take center stage yet again in the infamous infield on Friday, Oct. 21st!
This year’s one-of-a-kind party promises nothing less than ridiculously-fun entertainment for everyone. Scheduled are four new, outrageous original “fan challenges” that will be overseen by an array of NASCAR’s top drivers after they are paraded down legendary Talladega Blvd. Scheduled are:
- Egg-Streme Scramble – Teams of two will race down our Big One on the Blvd. slip-n-slide to find the raw egg hidden in a syrup-filled bucket. The first contestant to successfully find the raw egg and crack it over their partner’s head will be deemed the winner. Each time a player cracks an egg and it is not the raw one, the other teammate must then slide down and try their luck.
- Dirty ‘Dega Eating Contest – Four contestants will compete to finish their tray of Alabama’s finest “Dirt Cake.” Dirt cake is a mixture of crushed Oreo’s, whipped cream, gummy worms and pudding. The quickest competitor to finish their whole tray will be named the ‘Dega’s Dirtiest Champion!
- Crazy “Human Hamster” Balls – Contestants will compete in a two-round obstacle course showdown inside a Human Hamster Zorb ball. Two winners from round one will then compete against each other to see who is the fastest in order to claim victory.
- The Great Sausage Hunt – Eight competitors hungry for victory will face off against each other in a wrestling pit filled with 300 gallons of pumpkin puree, and then fight to find the hidden sausage link before their opponent. Drivers will determine who the final two contestants will be, and they will battle to see who is named the winner!
Competition winners will not only claim bragging rights, but will also win big cash prizes. To get all the details, fans will have to be in attendance!
Countless drivers have been a part of “The Big One on the Blvd” since its inception in the spring of 2014 – either by serving as a judge for the event or just showing up to take in all of the fun. The list has included Clint Bowyer, Austin Dillon, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Jeff Gordon, Michael Waltrip, Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne, Danica Patrick, Denny Hamlin and more.
Clint Boyer said,
The track continues to do a good job in making this (The Big One on the Blvd) bigger and better since we started it. It's not very often you get to see some of the drivers outside the garage or the race track, so this is a cool opportunity for us to kind of kick back and interact with some of the fans. There's no way you won't have a great time. Make sure to check it out. It's Talladega baby!
