Members of the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil crew and local Virginia media personalities paired up at the Kroger store in Short Pump on Thursday to compete in a ‘Tailgating Cook off,’ where the No. 22 crew members barbecued burgers for customers to sample for the chance of being selected the ‘People’s Choice’ winning team.
Crew members and shoppers competed in a ‘Grocery Bagging Challenge’ to see who could correctly bag groceries in the fastest time. Fans who filled their bags faster than the crew won Shell Gift Cards, Kroger Gift Cards and other No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil car themed prizes. The event was held in celebration of the exclusive relationship between Shell and Kroger.

This is the restaurant’s second location in Virginia; the first is in Arlington. Behind glass walls, customers watched the beer brewing in massive steel barrels. For our up-and-coming beer region, it makes sense that Short Pump would jump on board.
