JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (February 3rd, 2022)- Coastal Plains Dragway is excited to announce a partnership with the famous Mount Olive Pickle Company for a new award called “Give ‘em the Pickle” award. Racers who red light in the first round of competition at any race in 2022 will be handed a voucher to claim a free Mount Olive Dill Pickle at the newly rebranded Bright Leaf Dog House.   

“We are continuing to grow our racer experience in 2022,” CPD management stated. “We all can relate on how it feels to lose in the opening round. At least if you red light, you will get a pickle to enjoy on your way to the buy back window.” 

The new partnership will take effect immediately just in time for the Valentines Day Classic February 19th. This award will be given at both IHRA Summit Super Series events and specialty races throughout the 2022 season.    

“We are excited to once again show off another great Eastern North Carolina company,” management explained. “It’s more than racing, it’s an experience and that is what CPD continues to strive for; a great experience.” 


Mt. Olive Pickle Company, Inc., located at the Corner of Cucumber & Vine in Mount Olive, North Carolina, was originally founded for the purpose of brining cucumbers to be sold to other pickling firms. From a modest beginning in 1926, with only a 3,600 square foot building and $19,500 in capital, Mt. Olive has grown to be one of the most loved pickle companies, manufacturing the best-selling brand of pickles, peppers and relishes in the U.S.
