He developed his reputation visiting many of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series  events, running through the grandstands giving away pizza.  In many cases, it's the race fan that makes the most noise that receives  the reward of a Pizza.    Joe the Pizza Dude will be making an appearance at The Battle at Lincoln at the Lincoln  Speedway on Tuesday night, July 12.

Lincoln Speedway is a very popular and  "fan friendly" track in the tri-state area, offering great unobstructed viewing from every seat in the grandstands.   The infield  is open for watching the races  by entering through the fourth turn tunnel.  The pits are asphalt, with a slight elevation and  great lighting a so fans can watch all the pit action as well.     The three-eighth mile Lincoln Speedway offers it all, the high speeds that you would see at the "big tracks" with the flair and excitement of the short track "bull rings".  At Lincoln Speedway, you'll have it all.
