Once Chad got over the shock of driving an in-shell peanut car, he embraced the challenge with his usual enthusiasm! Show Chad your support as he breaks down long-standing racing superstitions.
Among the many superstitions in racing, peanuts have long been thought to be bad luck. We found a few different theories on this superstition, but it’s hard to pin down exactly where it started. We’ve decided the starting point really doesn’t matter because Chad Hackenbracht is bringing it to an end on July 28th!
Peanuts are a great-tasting, satisfying snack; and we have something for everyone. Available in plain-roast and salted-&-roasted for the traditionalists, a great new Hickory Smokehouse flavor for those who are looking for a little something extra and Cajun Hot Nuts for those who like it hot. Whatever your preference, Hampton Farms peanuts and your favorite cold beverage make the perfect addition to any race weekend. How can something that tastes so good possibly be bad luck?!
Hampton Farms is proud to sponsor Chad Hackenbracht. He is one of the most impressive young drivers in the ARCA series. Chad will be driving the Hampton Farms #58 car, covered in peanuts and the color green, which is also supposed to be bad luck in racing. We’re not buying it, and neither is Chad. He continues to drive like a racing veteran with top 10 and top 5 finishes; so we couldn’t think of a better partner to break through that old bad-luck superstition. Chad is exciting to watch, and we’re looking forward to seeing him drive the first Hampton Farms In-Shell Peanut car as he goes for the win on July 28th!
