See the Hogway Speedway from a pig's viewpoint

Posted October 20, 2016

— Racing pigs have been a tradition at the N.C. State Fair for years and the Circle "C" Racing Pigs are a huge attraction every year. But have you ever wondered what it is like to be one of the pigs taking to the speedway?

We hooked up a GoPro to one of the pigs at Hogway Speedway to find out.

The show is presented by Circle "C" Farm, of Newton, N.C. They have been racing pigs for more than a decade. And it isn't only pigs you can see taking to the speedway. Even some cute little ducks and goats get in on the action!

Note: These shows are always packed! No matter what time of day you go, so make sure to go at least 30 minutes early and grab a seat. And maybe have a snack – hit the nearby log cabin for some tasty brownies, muffins or eclairs - while you wait.
