(CHICAGO) — The racing world descends on Chicago this week as the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup begins at Chicagoland Speedway. Brad Keselowski tasted victory at Chicagoland last season, but if he wins this year, he’ll take a bite out of a Second City staple.

A new tradition will be born Sunday when the 400 race winner will be presented an Eisenberg Chicago-style hot dog in victory lane. In anticipation for the race, Keselowski toured three iconic Chicago hot dog venues on Tuesday as part of NASCAR’s Chase Across North America campaign.

Several lucky fans joined Keselowski at the locations: Weiner’s Circle, Franks N’ Dawgs and Portillos. Keselowski, however, did not dig in to a Chicago-style dog, hoping he would be able to do that on Sunday.

“You don’t want to taste the trophy before you’ve won,” the former Sprint Cup Champion said. “I want my first bite of a Chicago-style hot dog to be in Gatorade Victory Lane on Sunday.”

Sports Feed host Josh Frydman accompanied Keselowski to Franks N’ Dawgs, where the two did indulge in the restaurant’s famous sausages.

Keselowski’s dog of choice: the Reuben Pulaski (polish sausage, potato cake, sour kraut, 100 island dressing).
