Friday June 6th was National Donut Day. National Donut Day is the first Friday in the month of June every year. It first started in 1938 when a young military doctor was sent to a military base. On his way to the base he stopped by a bakery and picked up 8 dozen donuts. When he arrived at the base he began helping wounded soldiers and would give them a donut. This is how National Donut Day first came about. In honor of National Donut Day everyone at the Preston Autoplex got to enjoy fresh donuts from Bay Country Bakery. To add to the excitement we decided to have a donut eating contest in our BlackFrog building. There were three contestants and they had to eat four donuts as fast as they could. Whoever finished first won and took home the title of “Fastest Donut Eater”.
The contests were Brent “Krispy Dream” Durham, April “Dunkin’ Yourself Green, and Ricky “Hostess with the Mostess” Lynn. They three of them sat down for a pre-contest interview. David Wilson Jr. was kind enough to interview each one and ask them how they were going to eat the four donuts the quickest. There were four different types of donuts they had to eat. They could eat these four donuts in any order they wished. The donuts were glazed, powdered, sprinkled, and marble frosting. All three had different approaches as to which donut they would eat first. Here is the footage from the actual contest.
The winner was Brent “Krispy Dream” Durham. He ate the donuts in 3 minutes and 22 seconds! The second to finish was Ricky “Hostess with the Mostess” Lynn who didn’t fall far behind Brent. He was only a bite or two behind Brent but couldn’t manage to out eat him. In last place was April, who David says “hasn’t shown up to the competition yet”.
Stay tuned for our next eating contest here at the Autoplex which will be on July 6th. July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day, be sure to watch out for our footage on who wins the National Fried Chicken Eating Contest!
