FarmVille 2 - Country Escape Farm Dog 500 Guide

A new event is here! Help your team win the Farm Dog 500! Craft goods for the team to pull and earn Farm Dog 500 Points! Climb the leaderboard and earn a limited edition Alaskan Husky!
If you are at least level 9, you will see a pop-up inviting you to the Farm Dog 500! You will probably have to force close the game to see the update, which means to clear it from your mobile device's memory. You may even need to reboot your device.  
There are 2 stages to this event; each will be 5 days in length. Complete the Farm Dog 500 quests, and compete with friends for the top leaderboard position! Quests will reward you with Race Points, so be sure to complete as many as you can.
The Farm Dog Center will be located behind Eagle Eye Eddie. You will see 3 orders at a time that either can be harvested (crops), or crafted. Each item requested will have a different timer to allow you time to get the items needed. Recipes with Event items will have higher point values. New Event items can be found by sending Farm Hands to the Glade, Pond, Pier or Mine and Prized Animals.
Tip: Check the Farm Stand often to see if your friends are selling what you need.

On the upper right of the first tab of the Farm Dog 500 (image above) is where you can easily access the Boosts available.  You can boost the amount of Race points by 50% for coins, or by 100% with keys. There will be a timer once a boost is activated and a short cool-down period when you can buy another boost. Boosts will last 1 hour, and you can only select one boost at a time. (Prices subject to change based on level)

You will see 3 different rewards that are broken into tiers. If you are in the top (gold) portion of your leaderboard on the final day of the event, you will be rewarded with the Alaskan Husky farm hand. If you are in the middle tier (silver) at the end of the event, you will receive Silver Stamps. If you are in the lower tier (bronze), your reward will be Nails to help you upgrade your Barn or Silo.  You will only receive one of the rewards at the end, not all three.
There are 2 chances to win the prizes. The second stage will repeat the rewards shown below, but if you win the Husky on the first stage the second stage will show the Hall of Fame Husky. The Hall of Fame Husky will be an upgrade to the existing Husky, not a second dog. The Hall of Fame Husky will be great at finding Event items in select future events. 

Each time you reach a certain # of Race Points, you will get a Mystery Box with various rewards. Check the 3rd tab for the Meter. 
Please note the dates have changed for Stage 1. They are now Jan 9-14
The second tab will show you the leaderboard that you are in. Not everyone you know will be in the same leaderboard. The leaderboard tab will tell you which prize category you are currently in (Gold, Silver, or Bronze). You can also see how you rank among your friends. To be fair to all, you will be in a leaderboard with others that are similar level. While viewing the leaderboard you will now be able to see which Farmers are using boosts. 

New item needed and where to locate it:
  • Event Orange: Explore Grandma's Glade, or tend your Prized Animals.
  • Event Parsnips: Explore Pappy's Pond
  • Event Cherry Wood: Explore Prosperity Pier or Mallard Mill (which unlocks at level 34)
