The "Delicious at Any Speed" contest rewarded John Morrell Food Service restaurant operators that enrolled in its rebate program for pizza and flatbread toppings from January through April. Once enrolled, the operators became eligible to win a grand prize trip to Indianapolis. Canseven's name was selected, which granted him a personal meet-and-greet session with Richard Petty, team owner of the number 43 Sprint Cup Series team, and a guided tour of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage. Additionally, he also had his restaurant's logo showcased on the hood of the No. 43 Ford.

"It's always a pleasure to reward our small business operators," said Beth Sharkey, marketing manager, John Morrell Food Service. "Companies like City Pizza are the heart and soul of our industry and it's great to see them recognized. We hope this opportunity gives his business additional exposure and recognition. Of course we hope that Ahmet had a great time meeting Richard Petty and touring the NASCAR garage, too."

Canseven serves as the executive chef of City Pizza. City Pizza's menu features bottom-toasted screen pizza topped with quality fresh mozzarella and a wide variety of toppings, traditional dinners, appetizers, wraps, calzones, burgers, grinders, sandwiches and more.
