The main entrée. The Chicken Wing dominates the field with a BBQ style that's big, bold and quick. It has many different recipes for success, but also a saucy demeanor and sometimes can get a little 'crispy' after losses.
It's a race that was born in Buffalo.
The Wing, Cheese & Carrot Race (or WCC Race) at Sahlen Field is a ballpark tradition unlike any other, presented by Platter's Chocolates. The rivalries, the trash talking, the sometimes less then ethical racing...it's a competition that leaves you wanting more, and needing a wet nap.
Wing, Bleu Cheese and Carrot take the debate over Buffalo's favorite meal onto the field for the fans of Buffalo. Every night at the ballpark, the three race around the warning track in order to capture bragging rights. On really intense nights, Beef on Weck and Fish Fry enter the race to stake their claim as Buffalo's most beloved meal!
Bleu Cheese can absolutely smother the competition. With the mold of a champion, it serves as a creamy rival to Chicken Wing. Uses a trademark spin to pull off upsets over the wings, but can sometimes "crumble" when winning.

Chicken wings are Buffalo's favorite dish? Beef on Weck is pretty 'salty' over that idea. Here to prove that wrong, Beef on Weck can use seedy methods to win, has that rare ability to dominate and is looking to carve out its own place in the WCC Race.
