PETA takes issue with "The Chicken Dance"

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - The Talladega Superspeedway is going ahead with plans for a fast-food promotion at this weekend's race despite complaints by an animal rights group.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has asked Guinness World Records to ignore an attempt to set a world record for the largest group chicken dance at Talladega, site of the Aaron's 499 race on Sunday.

PETA says the sponsor of the event, KFC, mistreats chickens.

But track spokeswoman Kristi King says the world record attempt has been planned for awhile.

And she said track officials plan to go ahead with the promotion.

KFC called PETA a radical organization that's only interested in promoting a vegan agenda.
