Pronto Pup Eating Contest

Eleven contestants used a variety of strategies to down as many Pronto Pups as possible in five minutes with only water to drink. Lincoln City Mayor Dick Anderson was one of four judges for the competition.

A group of five contestants drove from Salem for the event, and one, Rusty Shackleford, took second place and a $100 gift certificate to Otis Pizzeria.

Shackleford’s technique was to cut the Pronto Pups in half, shred them and soak them in ketchup. He said he didn’t feel very well after the competition and declined an interview, but said it was fun and he would be back.
