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.

sausages earlier in the day at the fan-favorite pre-race F.O.M.
