“These are some of the most popular events at the racetrack,” said Jason Settlemoir, COO and GM of Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment.  “We want to make sure these dates are marked on our fans and food vendor calendars, it is never too early to think about enjoying a night at the track while enjoying some fantastic food!”

 

The 3rd annual Battle for the Best Burger is slated for Saturday, June 9. The contest offers a $1,500 grand prize with $1,000 for 2nd place and $500 for third. This free event runs from 12 noon - 10 pm and fans are encouraged to come out and taste some of the best local burgers.  Two lucky fans will win a spot at the Judging Table and help determine the top 3 burgers.
