TALLADEGA, Ala. – During a day, a stage during Talladega Superspeedway is mostly about a NASCAR drivers and who’s piloting a fastest car. But when a object goes down, a infield during a 2.66-mile lane transforms into a wild, outside nightclub with a camping vibe, kicked off by The Big One on a Blvd on Friday night.
It started with a motorist march by a camping drift – Jeff Gordon, Kyle Larson, Ryan Blaney, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. and Clint Bowyer were among those on a boyant – heading adult to unusual fan competitions, like racing to finish a 32-ounce play of queso drop and a four-person send competition by a 300-pound pool of a same cheese.
“Honestly, Talladega does a best pursuit of ancillary a fan experience,” Blaney pronounced of a festivities, where hundreds of fans came to watch. “So anything we can do as drivers to help, it’s what is all about.”
The Cinco de Mayo thesis – notwithstanding a participation of stereotypical Mexican food and enlightenment – did not discuss a Mexican fight story a holiday represents. In a past, a vast competitions have enclosed wrestling in grill salsa and tellurian hamster round races. But Friday, it was all about a cheese.

“This is Talladega – because not?” one lady said.
Looking over a competitions from his mark on a float, late motorist and FOX Sports researcher Michael Waltrip said, “It’s unfortunate and interesting during a same time. It’s kind of like food porn.”
