NASCAR DAY at Smithfield Foods (15 photos)

Employees, guests and potential employees were welcomed to Grayson's Smithfield Foods facility Saturday for NASCAR Day, which included an opportunity for an up-close visit with the Stewart-Haas Racing NASCAR #10 Ford Mustang.

With free hot dogs as well as cotton candy, hot cocoa and fresh popcorn, visitors also had a chance to test their driving skills behind the wheel of a NASCAR driving simulator.

"We are taking applications today. We need production and maintenance workers," Plant Manager Jeff Salyer said.

"And we have excellent benefits," added HR Manager Sheri Wallace.
