The Budweiser Tiki Hut will provide plenty of fun and entertainment during NASCAR's 25th visit to The Glen.
New York Lotto Quick Draw will be setting up shop in the Budweiser Tiki Hut area for anyone who feels lucky. The lotto quick draw numbers will be displayed on the Sprint Vision Screen throughout the race weekend for fans who have put money on the line. Quick Draw is a relatively simple game where contestants pick up to ten numbers from 1-80 and a computer picks 20 numbers randomly. Winners are paid based on how many matches they have. All fans will need in order to win is a little bit of luck.
Fans with an empty stomach and a hunger for competition need look no further than the Tiki Hut and the NEW Trash Plate Challenge. Contestants will have 30 minutes to tackle a heaping amount of food, consisting of Sahlen’s hot dogs, chicken fingers, tater tots, hot chili sauce, Yancey’s Fancy Artisan Cheese and Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dip, all piled atop a 31 gallon trash can lid – that’s enough to feed 6 people! It is a challenge eating star Adam Richman himself would not be able to finish. For those determined few who defeat the challenge, their meal will be free ($50 value), receive an “I Survived the Trash Plate” t-shirt and access to Gatorade Victory Lane on Sunday along with a photo on the Wall of Champions. The contest will take place twice on Saturday, August 7, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM, and once more from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Fans will have one more shot on Sunday, August 8, from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
The Budweiser Tiki Hut now features a full bar and with it numerous happy hours featuring Budweiser, Hazlitt wines and Crown Royal during the weekend. The NASCAR Happy Hour kicks things off on Friday, August 6 from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM, the Zippo 200 pre-race Happy Hour keeps things running on Saturday, August 7 from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM, and then the Heluva Good! Happy Hour brings things home on Sunday, August 8, from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM. Live music will help provide a change of pace on Saturday with Virgil Cane performing 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM, the Electric Jangles from 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM and special guest Bo Bice 9:00 PM – 10:00 PM.
