Smithfield Racing

Whole Hog Challenge


It’s your turn to compete – and win!


We know that NASCAR gets your adrenaline going, so we’re serving up a competition you can really sink your teeth into. The Smithfield Whole Hog Challenge is an exciting season-long series of amateur competitive eating contests. Qualifying contests will be held at most Smithfield primary races throughout the 2016 racing season.


The winner of each qualifying event will receive prizes such as Richard Petty Driving Experience stock car ride-along certificates, as well as a trip to the Homestead-Miami race in November to compete against other series event winners. The Smithfield Whole Hog Challenge Champion will win a trip to the 2017 season-opener race in Daytona.
