Texas Motor Speedway Showcases Crazy Concessions at Weekend Races

Whether or not you're a fan of cars driving around in circles, a trip to Texas Motor Speedway may be in order just to sample the crazy concessions. If you thought the Rangers Ballpark had a monopoly on absurd sporting event eats (see: the two-foot long Boomstick), think again.

Hawg Heaven Bacon Cotton Candy: Chopped bacon and sugar are spun into candy floss, and garnished with candied bacon bits.
Bacon Cotton Candy Martini: This cocktail is made with cotton candy-infused vodka and garnished with a candied bacon skewer. (When did bacon and cotton candy become a popular flavor pairing, exactly?)
Smokin' Hubcaps: This Hypnotic Donuts-esque creation consists of a glazed donut topped with smoked brisket, cole slaw, fried onion strings, cheddar, and barbecue sauce.
Jackalope Sausage: A blend of pork, rabbit, and antelope. Antlers not included.

If you happen to make the trek out to TMS this weekend for the NASCAR NRA 500, you'll catch a special event they're calling the Inaugural Shake-and-Bake Off, or what is probably the largest gathering of deep-fried foods the Metroplex will see outside of the State Fair. Eight finalists will battle it out for the titles of "Best Flavor" and "Most Original"; the weekend's competitors include Cheese on a Stick, Chocolate Covered Turtle Cheesecake, Deep Fried Jalapeno Sausage on a Stick, Fried Guacamole, Ribeye Sandwich, the aforementioned Smokin' Hubcaps, Southern Style Fried Bologna and the rather ominously-named Inferno Dog.

The Shake-and-Bake Off kicks off this Friday at 9 a.m. at the SPEED Stage just outside Gate 3; all the competing dishes will be available for purchase during the races this weekend.
