Premio is Back for "Friends of Mike" Sausage Eating Contest Take 2

New Egypt, NJ (July 17, 2012) – Get ready for Round #2 as Premio Foods is BACK!!!  New Egypt Speedway will certainly be the place to be on July 28 for the 7th Annual Friends of Mike Night and this time there’s a sausage eating contest added to the mix. Premio Foods, who will be sponsoring a portion of the evening’s activities at the speedway, will also be presenting the second-ever Premio Italian Sausage eating contest. Premio has been the official sausage of New Egypt Speedway for the past decade, which is cooked and served weekly by Maxwell’s Special Events Catering.

Premio Foods is one of the leading sausage manufacturers in the country and is proud to be a part of New Egypt Speedway. They have been passionate about making fine Italian sausage for decades, and continues the tradition in their family today. Their delicious mild Italian sausage, fresh bracioli and sweet lugiana are traditional Italian favorites, but they also honor other classic ethnic varieties with their hearty bratwurst, beer bratwurst, chorizo and kielbasa.

The contest will take place on the front stretch during the intermission of the Friends of Mike activities. Just like back in April, custom aprons and hats will be given out to the participants in the contest. There are 15 available spots open for the contestants. The first place prize will be a $100 American Express gift card, with second place receiving a $50 Premio Foods voucher, and third place earning a $25 Premio Foods voucher. The fans of New Egypt will get to see just who can eat six full sausage links the quickest.

Premio Foods representative Pete Telesco was extremely happy with the inaugural eating contest held back in April. “We loved having the contest earlier in the year even though the weather didn’t cooperate with the track. The atmosphere during the sausage contest as it was raining was fantastic. I can’t even imagine what it’s going to be like on Friends of Mike Night,” offered Telesco.

Premio Foods will generously be donating some of their great tasting sausages earlier in the day at the fan-favorite pre-race F.O.M. free-to-the-public BBQ. Telesco and gang will have plenty of giveaways and coupons that will be given out to the fans in attendance on this unforgettable night of racing. There will be plenty of food, prizes, and of course racing on what is shaping up to be one of the best Friends of Mike events ever.

For fans who wish to compete in the eating contest please pre-register with the speedway by calling 609-758-1900 or emailing the track at You must be 18 years or older to compete in the contest. The first 15 fans to register will be the contestants in action on July 28.

The Sportsman will battle it out for a $1,500 top prize while the Outlaw Stocks will race for an increased winner’s share of $1,000.
