After weeks of campaigning and voting, we have a winner for the Pocono 400! CONGRATULATIONS TO SHAWN MCMILLAN for his winning submission of “Party in the Poconos 400”! He took the lead in the voting and never looked back! Thanks for all those who participated in the voting! And I am sure Shawn is thankful for your votes as well. But this is just only the beginning, there is another campaign being waged! You, the fan, can choose what type of pierogi that will be served at The Party!
I will be the first to admit, I have no idea what a piergoi is or even eaten one. So being the person I am, I consulted my ever faithful friend, the internet. Thanks to Wikipedia, I now know what a pierogi is.
Pierogis are dumplings of unleavened dough, first boiled, then baked or fried usually in butter with onions, and traditionally stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese or fruit. There are of central and eastern European provenance, and are usually semicircular, but are rectangular or triangular in some cuisines.
With that being said, here are your choices you can choose from in the pierogi contest! I have also included a picture of them in case you want to know what they look like.
- Hot Honey Buffalo Wing–friend then shaken in a honey-hot sauce, served with blue cheese dressing
- Loaded Potato Skin–fried and topped with cheese and bacon, served with sour cream
- Sweet Cinnamon Sugar–fried and topped with whipped cream
Wow!! These all sound DELICIOUS! I personally like the Loaded Potato Skin! For one thing, it has bacon on it! I mean BACON!!! And as well all know, bacon makes EVERYTHING better! The other two sound yummy too! Either way, you need to get voting! And just like with the race name, you get to decide the winner! Just head on over to Walmart Race Driven 400 Facebook Page and make your voice heard! Once again, you can vote once a day, every day until May 6! Right now, Loaded Potato Skin has jumped out in the lead! So if you like Hot Honey Buffalo Wing or Sweet Cinnamon Sugar, you better get voting!
Want to go to the Party, but lacking the necessary funds? Don’t worry, you can get a ticket for only $25! Yep, that’s it! But you need to hurry, there are only a limited number of these specially priced tickets (courtesy of the folks at Walmart) available. Tickets can be purchased online at Walmart.com!
