VERNON, Calif. (PRUnderground) October 6th, 2020

Commandeering 3500 horses to South Georgia Motor Sports Park (SGMP) in Adel on October 10-13, Coast Packing Company CEO Eric R. “Goose” Gustafson — for the first time ever with radial tires on this car — will drive his ’69 Noonan Hemi ProCharger Pro Mod Camaro at Duck X Productions’ Sweet 16 3.0 (, with “takeout or delivery” #FatMap229 in tow.

Touting the “baddest Radial vs. the World” cars racing for $100K, Duck X Productions LLC is predicting records galore during the event, which will mark R&E Racing’s first visit to SGMP since June 2019 PDRA Summer Nationals and its first outing since the team took the NMCA World Championship late last month.

For this post-season stop, Coast Packing, the leading supplier of animal fat shortenings in the Western U.S., has assembled a refreshed and expanded online gastronomic #FatMap229 (, highlighting local spots where fans can “Taste the Difference” that lard and beef tallow make in popular dishes, for take-out or delivery.  Proximate to Valdosta, Georgia, Tallahassee and Jacksonville, Florida, and the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, Adel is part of the taste of the deep South.  #FatMap229 shines a light on 57 take-out and/or delivery spots in 32 cities (, unified by an embrace of the farm fats that define Southern cooking.

Beef tallow fries are on offer at FLIP Burger Boutique and Biltong Bar in Atlanta, as well as at Basecamp, located on Kennesaw Mountain in Marietta.  You can stock up on beef fat at Marview Farms in Arabi, beef fat and lard at Mountain Valley Farm in Ellijay, and at The Spotted Trotter in Atlanta. Praise the Lard BBQ in Buford stays faithful to pork fat, while Rodeo Mexican Restaurant in Valdosta, among other locations, uses lard in its refried beans; Cracker Barrel Old Country Store cooks with lard across an array of dishes.  Lift the lid and you’ll find beef tallow in the fryers at Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and Outback Steakhouse.

South Georgia Motor Sports Park, always a tremendous venue, lies in the heart of Cook County, an area home to a wealth of spots steeped in time-tested Southern cooking traditions,” Gustafson said.  “In terms of freshness, flavor and texture, foods made with farm fats like lard and beef tallow are natural standouts, which is why we’re so delighted when consumers taste for themselves, as they can from Valdosta to Tifton to Atlanta.”
