TMS, LEVY RESTAURANTS UNVEIL HAWG HEAVEN BBQ MELT
- Next-Generation Hawg Heaven Concession Item Features An Entire BBQ Meal In One Sandwich
FORT WORTH, Texas (April 1, 2016) - Texas Motor Speedway and Levy Restaurants are making it easy for race fans to enjoy an entire barbeque meal, including those delicious comfort food sides, with just their hands.
The Hawg Heaven BBQ Melt is the next generation of the highly successful, bacon-infused Hawg Heaven line and is sure to entice Texas BBQ lovers to check out the latest creation by Levy Restaurants Executive Chef Lincoln Engstrom.
This oversized sandwich features:
- Texas BBQ pulled pork braised in Texas Motor Speedway’s recently released No Limits Checkered Past craft beer produced by the Audacity Brew House in Denton, Texas
- Creamy bacon jalapeÃ±o mac & cheese
- Texas 1015 sweet onions
- Fried spicy pickle chips
All of those ingredients are wedged between two slices of griddled jalapeÃ±o cornbread and garnished with a bacon-wrapped jalapeÃ±o.
The Hawg Heaven BBQ Melt, which will sell for $12, makes its debut at next weekend's Duck Commander 500 NASCAR doubleheader weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. The item will only be available at the concession stand on the concourse inside the Gate 4 main grandstand entrance.
"As we continue to expand our Hawg Heaven brand, we felt giving our fans an entire meal in a sandwich was the next step in this series of products everyone loves," Engstrom said. “This sandwich is a meal in itself and I know our fans will be looking forward to enjoying this at the Duck Commander 500.”
The Hawg Heaven concession line began in 2013 with the Hawg Heaven Bacon Cotton Candy and has featured the Shake 'n Bacon Brew bacon-infused beer milkshake, Hawg Heaven Bacon Nachos, Hawg Heaven Queso Wings, Hawg Heaven Double Barrel Dawg and the Final Rocky Road-eo ice cream sundae honoring Jeff Gordon’s final season in 2015.
The upcoming race weekend at Texas Motor Speedway will be highlighted by the NASCAR XFINITY Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 on Friday, April 8, and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Duck Commander 500 on Saturday, April 9.
