You can’t keep a fast team away from South Georgia Motor Sports Park (SGMP) in Adel, as Coast Packing Company’s R&E Racing prepares once again to free its 3500 horses, this time for DuckX/BossX Productions’ 4th Annual Sweet 16 4.0 (, April 1-3.

Smoking the strip, R&E Racing’s ’69 Noonan Hemi ProCharger Pro Mod Camaro has enjoyed a record month.  At Lights Out 12 in late February, veteran driver Jason Lee went to the top of the qualifying list and established the quickest mark in small tire racing with a 3.502 elapsed time at 211.46 miles per hour.

For this early Spring 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 – and finally dine in.  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 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.

SGMP lies in the heart of Cook County, an area home to a wealth of spots steeped in time-tested Southern cooking traditions – many of which now welcome diners,” said Coast CEO Eric R. “Goose” Gustafson.  “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.”
