Are you a fan of NASCAR? How about that great New England favorite, clam chowder? Yes to both? Well you're in luck! The New Hampshire Motor Speedway is hosting it's first ever TUMS "Chowdah" Challenge!
Original recipes for the best homemade clam chowder are being accepted until 12:00 Noon on September 15th (yikes tomorrow!) and then 5 finalists will be selected to compete in a live cook off on September 19, 2010 at the track. Judging will be done by Michael Waltrip, NASCAR driver, Jimmy Spencer, former driver and current SPEED analyst, and Levy Restaurants Area Chef Sam Carlsen.
