Dunkin' Donuts Chicago wants to find out who is the biggest race fan in Chicagoland with an exciting sweepstakes. The winning race fan will get the opportunity to drive like the big dogs as part of the Richard Petty Driving Experience. The Richard Petty Experience offers the sensation of driving a real NASCAR racecar, just like the famous No. 43 Eckrich Richard Petty Motorsports Ford, navigating ultra-high speeds behind the wheel of a stock car on a 1.5 mile oval track.

To enter the sweepstakes, race fans need to write an essay in 150 words or less explaining why they are considered the biggest race fan of all. Entries can be submitted on the Dunkin' Chicago Facebook page. The grand prize winner will receive a certificate to the Richard Petty Driving Experience, an Eckrich Smoked Sausage gift basket and a $50 Dunkin' Donuts gift card.

Additionally, Eckrich and Dunkin' Donuts will participate in the Race Fan Rally on Thursday, September 11, 2014 in Joliet, Ill. They will have the Eckrich mobile unit on display, which features the No. 43 Eckrich show car and interactive games for the whole family to enjoy. They will also be handing out coupons for free Dunkin' Dogs to fans that stop by to visit during the event. Dunkin' Dogs feature delicious Eckrich Cheddar Smoked Sausage, wrapped in soft, sweet dough.

"We're pleased to continue our partnership with Dunkin' Donuts and work together on some very special promotions," said Michael Baughman, Director of Marketing, John Morrell Food Group. "We're looking forward to the Chicago race weekend and sharing all of the thrills and excitement that the sport has to offer with our fans firsthand."
