In 2016, I-35 Speedway began a new venture tying together BBQ with Circle Track racing. The aromas of the racetrack changed from the normal smell of racing fuel to a new aroma of brisket, ribs, and pork cooking in the smokers of the various Kansas City Barbeque Society competitors. The event was super successful and once again the date is rapidly approaching for the second version of the Smokin’ Trackside BBQ Bash. This year the Smokin’ Trackside BBQ Bash will be on August 11-12, 2017, again in the grass parking lots of I-35 Speedway, located at exit 64 off Interstate 35.
If you are team looking to qualify for an automatic entry in the Jack Daniel’s World Championship and the American Royal Invitational this is the event for you. Our request has been submitted to the Governor of Missouri for a proclamation to make this a state qualifying event. Last year’s Grand Champion, Smoking Hills, have already submitted their entry to defend their title. Now is the time to sign up for this event, visit our website, I-35speedway.net or we also have a Facebook page, Smoking Trackside BBQ Bash at I-35 Speedway. Come compete in the competition by day and enjoy the fast racing at the track on Saturday evening!
Friday will once again be a time for preparation and then relaxation. Like last year we will have entertainment and a People’s Choice contest that evening at the Trackside Bar and Grill. The public are more than welcome to come enjoy the festivities. Racing, BBQ, and Brew what can be more American? Make your plans to be a part of this event.
