Hey there! Here is some (almost) interesting intel for you. Did you know that the actual speedway (the Watermelon Capital Speedway) – based in Cordele, GA, (Crisp County) is actually called the Crisp Motorsports Park? Yup! It’s true.
By the way, you may be wondering about the whole “watermelon” theme here. Well, as it turns out, Cordele, GA calls itself the “Watermelon Capital of the World.” My, that is a bold statement, but I suppose if they didn’t have some way to justify the claim, someone else would beat them to it. And, to their benefit, they DO host an annual watermelon festival every year (in June).
One final “watermelon” mention. Have you ever heard the song “Watermelon Crawl” by country singer Tracy Byrd. Honestly, this song has to be one of those particular tunes that epitomizes just about every stereotype people can come up with in country music. It’s one of those songs I love to despise. And so I will share it here with you, so that just in case you didn’t already have an obnoxious ear worm haunting you today – well, you will now. Anyway, come back again to see what we have in store for you next!
