The inaugural "Red White Blue & Que" barbecue competition, sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, is set for July 8-9 at Lucas Oil Speedway.
Wheatland, Missouri (March 20, 2017) - Along with outstanding racing action, the great taste of professional barbecue is coming to Lucas Oil Speedway this summer.
The inaugural "Red White Blue & Que," a Kansas City Barbeque Society-sanctioned event, is scheduled for July 8-9 at Lucas Oil Speedway.
More than 20 teams are expected to compete for a purse of at least $5,000 on the second day. Race fans attending the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series event on first day, July 8, can sample barbecue from 5-7 p.m. and vote for their favorite as teams compete for "People's Choice" honors.
The weekly racing program is Veterans & Military Appreciation Night Presented by the Springfield News-Leader Media Group. In keeping with the theme, some proceeds from the People's Choice public sampling will go to an Ozarks military and veterans charity.
"We're excited about the opportunity to bring some of the best barbecue teams in the nation to Wheatland," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. "Along with a great night of racing, it's a chance for our fans to sample professional barbecue for a good cause."
