Attack of the killer potato: Meet Texas Motor Speedway’s latest Hawg Heaven creation

The Taternator is a “Texas-sized” smoked potato that is overstuffed with a pound and a half of BBQ pulled pork, hickory black-pepper sausage and brisket, and then topped with spicy bacon jalapeño mac-and-cheese and a creamy bacon gravy.

The BBQ spud will cost $12 and is available throughout the triple-header race weekend at the Levy All-American Stand 405 concession. The weekend includes the JAG Metals 350 on Friday, the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 on Saturday and the AAA Texas 500 on Sunday.

“This will surely ‘starch’ the engines of our race fans,” Engstrom said. “The Hawg Heaven Taternater is the perfect fall feast for our race-starved fans that have been waiting six months for NASCAR to return to Texas Motor Speedway.”

Past Hawg Heaven items include the Shake ‘n Bacon Brew bacon-infused milk shake, Hawg Heaven Bacon Cotton Candy, BBQ Melt, Funnel Fries, Bacon Nachos and more.
