Stewart’s Day at the Races was packed with fun! There was a featured Stewart’s Shops race and our famous ice cream eating contest. Stewart’s Shops and Chad O’Hara from B95.5 hosted the 14th annual ice cream eating contest at the Saratoga Race Track! The 6th Race was the Stewart’s Race, and our Lucky Tape Winner Jesse S., pictured below, enjoyed a day of races in the Stewart’s Shops box, a $100 Visa gift card and a trip to the Winner’s Circle with Stewart’s President, Gary Dake.
Thirty lucky contestants were chosen for the kids, teens and adult ice cream contests, ten in each group. They raced to see who could devour a pint of Stewart’s Philly Vanilla the fastest. The contestants had to use a spoon, and some were very creative and strategic with their ice cream consumption. Some contestants used the spoon like a lollipop stick and had the entire pint on their spoon as they proceeded to eat it. Others just shoved in as much as they could on their spoon. And all the contestants did their best to avoid brain freeze.
Congratulations to the winners, they took home twenty-five 1/2-gallon certificates; now that’s a lot of ice cream!
Kids: Christina G of Schenectady – 1.17 minutes
Teens: Kaylin S. of West Coxsackie – .32 seconds

But win or lose, everyone had fun.
