Candied-Bacon Lollipops, Crank Shaft Burrito and Speedway Picnic Burger To Tickle Taste Buds at Charlotte Motor Speedway
Charlotte Motor Speedway has many long-standing traditions, but the tastiest is no doubt the fun food menu for fans. From chocolate-covered bacon to the Funnel Bacakonator, speedway officials have partnered with Levy Restaurants to create unique, delectable treats only found at Charlotte. This May, Candied-Bacon Lollipops, the Crank Shaft Burrito and the Speedway Picnic Burger will make their delicious debut during the 10 Days of NASCAR Thunder at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Sure to be a fan favorite are the Candied Bacon Lollipops, which combine the savory saltiness of thick-cut bacon with the sweetness of brown sugar and maple syrup and an added kick of Sriracha chili sauce and black pepper, creating a medley of flavors that will satisfy the taste buds. At just 225 calories, fans will want to grab two or three of these tasty treats piled high on a skewer for just $5 each.
The Crank Shaft Burrito is a 6.5-pound masterpiece that can feed a family of four or more, all for just $25. At 5,047 calories, the gargantuan burrito consists of four 12-inch tortillas stuffed with 1.5 pounds of baked beans, 1.5 pounds of coleslaw and 3 pounds of Carolina pulled pork, tossed with house-made 'Speedway City' barbecue sauce, and topped with 8 ounces of white queso, 4 ounces of jalapeños, more baked beans, slaw and pulled pork.
For fans looking for more traditional race track fare, Levy Restaurants has put a twist on the average family picnic with the 6-pound Speedway Picnic Burger. Made to share with family and friends, the 6,209-calorie smorgasbord of food has eight ¼-pound burgers, eight hotdogs, 1.5 pounds of pulled pork, 1 pound of bacon, lettuce, tomatoes and eight slices of American cheese piled on a 14-inch sesame seed bun. The burger costs $35 and comes wrapped with a tablecloth and includes serving utensils, plates and napkins for the full speedway picnic experience.
Fans can try any of these tasty treats during the 10 Days of NASCAR Thunder at the Levy concessions area on the frontstretch concourse.
