An “entire barbecue meal” fits inside Texas Motor Speedway’s newest sandwich, according to a news release.
Barbecue pulled pork, bacon jalapeño macaroni and cheese, sweet onions and fried spicy pickle chips fill the Speedway’s Hawg Heaven BBQ Melt, a sandwich that will debut at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Duck Commander 500 on April 9. The pulled pork will be braised in Texas Motor Speedway’s craft beer, No Limits Checkered Past, which the Speedway unveiled Wednesday. The sandwich is held together by two slices of jalapeño cornbread, topped with a bacon-wrapped jalapeño.
The sandwich is $12 and will only be sold at a concession stand by the Gate 4 main grandstand entrance.
The Hawg Heaven BBQ Melt is a creation of Lincoln Engstrom, executive chef at Chicago-based restaurant company Levy Restaurants. The sandwich joins Texas Motor Speedway’s Hawg Heaven concession line, a series of food products launched in 2013 that feature bacon-infused meals, snacks and desserts. Other items in the series include bacon cotton candy, bacon nachos and a bacon-infused beer milkshake.
