FONTANA - Calif. (June 5, 2017) - PizzaOvens.com and sponsors will attempt to break the record for the Longest Pizza at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana by making a 7,000' (1.3 miles) pizza on Saturday, June 10, 2017. The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and is free to the public.
Pizza assembly will begin from outside of turn 3 of the legendary NASCAR oval track along the tram route to the fan zone where a designated area will be sectioned off for the public to watch the pizza cook.
Live entertainment will be in the fan zone from 12-5 p.m. and the pizza is expected to be done around 4 p.m. In addition, PizzaOvens.com has partnered with GroovyKids Yoga to offer a free 45-minute family yoga class at 10 a.m.
Officials from Guinness World Records will be present to document the challenge and officially judge the record attempt.
• The dough weighs about 17600 lbs
