Jesse Jones is returning to Martinsville (Va.) Speedway in time for the March 23-25 NASCAR race weekend featuring the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and Camping World Truck Series. The last three years the tack’s concession-stand hotdog offering was a product from Smithfield, a primary sponsor of the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford of Aric Almirola in the Cup Series.
 
“We at Jesse Jones are excited to partner with Martinsville Speedway again and be the exclusive provider of the world famous Jesse Jones weenie in the Famous Martinsville Speedway Hot Dog,” Jesse Jones representative Duncan White said.  “A long-standing tradition that dates back to 1947 can be enjoyed together again by generations of race fans.”
 
The track replaced the Jesse Jones wiener with the Smithfield product in 2015 and remained with the new dog in 2016 and 2017. Fans, though, missed the traditional red southern-style Jesse Jones weiner that had become a Martinsville tradition.
 
“Our fans have told us they wanted Jesse Jones back and we have listened,” Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell said. “The Jesse Jones hot dog is part of what made The Famous Martinsville Speedway Hot Dog famous and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
 
The returned Jesse Jones hotdog will be available for $2 at all of the track’s concession stands during Martinsville’s NASCAR race weekend next month.
 
As before, the fully-loaded dog will be topped with Jesse Jones chili, slaw, mustard and onions on a steamed bun.
