There's nothing better than sitting in the grand stands of a NASCAR race on a sunny day, watching your favorite driver, sipping down a tall Coke, and buying a big stick of beef from the summer sausage guy.
Except of course when he throws the sausage your way, and ends up wacking another guy in the face. That's when summer sausages start flying across the stands, with lots of expletives and spilled drinks. Not a good sight.
So to remedy this, NASCAR is getting rid of the walking summer sausage vendors, and selling these babies via retail. Now you just buy 'em before the race, and enjoy. No more black eyes!
NASCAR Summer Sausage is produced by Chandler, MN-based Monogram Meat Snacks, LLC, in partnership with NASCAR. They come in three sizes, 5oz, 9oz, and manly sized, 18oz.
They'll be sold at convenience stores.
