Phoenix Raceway celebrates St. Patrick's Day with Lucky Leprechaun Dog

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, fans coming to the Camping World 500 race weekend March 17-19 are encouraged to take a bite out of the Lucky Leprechaun Dog, the newest signature item of Phoenix Raceway. Coming in at a whopping 950 calories, the Lucky Leprechaun Dog is a deep-fried gourmet hot dog covered in corn beef and smothered in lucky green bacon mustard sauce served on a traditional bun.

The green and golden twist on a race-day classic is thanks to a collaboration between Phoenix Raceway and Americrown. Fans can feast on the Lucky Leprechaun Dog during the upcoming NASCAR Weekend at all Lucky Dog locations on the DC Solar Power Pavilion (formerly Fan Midway).

"With signature foods being such an important part of the race day fan experience, we asked our chefs to create a one-of-a-kind delight that fans can't get anywhere else," said Kristie Maggs, Senior Director of Consumer Marketing & Partnership Activation. "Just like NASCAR, this creation packs a unique punch to an American Classic with of course that St. Patrick's Day twist."

The Lucky Leprechaun Dog will also be entered into the nationwide Big Dog Contest to be held during the Championship Weekend at Miami Homestead Speedway. Each track in the International Speedway Corporation (ISC) family of tracks will be submitting a dog for entry at the end of the 2017 NASCAR season to win the coveted award. Fans will get to try the different versions of hot dogs and place their votes for the top dog at the championship race.

Tickets for the Camping World 500 are available starting at $25; and tickets and pit passes may be purchased online at PhoenixRaceway.com, by phone at 866-408-RACE (7223) or in person at the track ticket office.
