About Tailgating Challenge  
It all started with an everyday person, Luke Lorick, who like many others, worked for a large corporation that demanded long work-weeks of 50+ hours.  Luke remembered hearing people say that “if you do something you love, you never work a day in your life.”  Determined to test that theory, Luke decided to put his long-time passion of tailgating (mainly at the University of South Carolina, where he graduated from in 2004), to work.  And there you have it – the beginning of Tailgating Challenge®.  Since establishing Tailgating Challenge in 2012, Luke Lorick has quickly become a leading subject matter expert of all tailgating-related products.  Luke is also the founder of National Tailgating Day, which takes place the first September of every year.  He is driven by a strong will to make Tailgating Challenge, and the content it delivers, be the best it can for his fans.  Luke is arguably the world’s most trusted subject matter expert who attracts a significant, active, and loyal audience.
