About HotScream ... HotScream takes two concepts, dessert and spicy food, and combines them to form a product that can only be described as 'HotScream The Spicy Ice Cream'. By taking ice cream with its cool creaminess and incorporating a spicy swirl, HotScream has created a new taste sensation, one that almost defies one's own senses. At first, you taste the pureness of the vanilla, followed quickly by the sweetness of one of seven flavor swirls. As you continue to enjoy HotScream, things change: You feel a warming sensation that starts in the back of your mouth, creating a rush that only can come from spicy foods. The warming continues to linger but doesn't engulf your mouth with fire. Taking another bite, you again taste the cool, creamy vanilla and the respective flavor profile while the heat dissipates, only to come back time and time again. HotScream will be available in Walmart stores from Maine to Texas, ACME Food stores, Big Y, select ShopRites and Stop & Shop in April. For more information, visit http://www.HotScream.com.
Meet Grala ... Fans can meet Grala when he stops by the Xfinity Zone for a Q&A session on Friday, April 12, beginning at 1:45 p.m. local time. Stop by, ask a question and grab an autograph before he goes racing under the lights.
KAZ GRALA QUOTE:
Now that you have one race under your belt with RCR, what are your thoughts about getting back behind the wheel this weekend at Richmond Raceway?
"I feel really confident going into Richmond Raceway with the No. 21 HotScream team. We learned a lot about each other at Texas Motor Speedway, and definitely showed some strengths that we can build on. RCR already has a great baseline for Richmond, so I think our focus this weekend is going to be keeping up with the changing track conditions and making sure we are proactive with our adjustments. Luckily, my crew chief, Justin Alexander, has had some great success at Richmond in the past, so I'll be looking to him for guidance throughout the day on Friday. Tire management over the course of a run has always been one of my strong suits, so I am looking forward to putting this No. 21 HotScream Camaro up front and hopefully capitalizing at the end of the night."
