It’s always interesting to see what NASCAR track chefs, presumably wearing big checkered-flag-looking chef hats, come up with to satisfy famished fans exhausted from, you know, sitting in one spot all day.

This weekend, they have two new and improved favorites back: On the left is the “Talla-Mento Dogwich,” on the right is the “Colossal The Big One Meatball.”

Sometimes, you just can’t improve on the press release:

"During its debut earlier this year, the 'Talla-Mento Dogwich' – the all-American twist on everyone’s favorite hot dog conjoined with a classic grilled cheese sandwich – quickly achieved fan-favorite status with over-the-top featured ingredients to combine the two for a mouth-watering taste.

"The scrumptious 'Talla-Mento Dogwich' is a grilled, all beef hot dog split into two and placed on top of melted Yancey’s Fancy buffalo cheddar cheese, topped with a generous helping of pimiento cheese, placed in between two slices of Texas Toast (grilled to golden brown) and cut down the middle. No corners have been cut on the dish, using Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan signature spicy buffalo cheese and cheddar cheese to drive home that perfect flavor for fans’ taste buds. Yancey’s Fancy has specialized in hand crafted cheeses for long over sixty plus years, with a reputation for producing high quality products.”

And then there’s the "world-renowned ‘The Big One’ Meatball, the biggest and most unique of its kind, weighs in at over a pound. It has a center of blended mozzarella and pepper jack cheeses mixed with smoked BBQ Pulled Pork and a little house BBQ sauce for an extra kick. It is then covered by a layer of Ground Beef, rolled in a panko bread crumb and parmesan mix before being deep fried to a golden brown. And, there’s more – it is then topped off with a dollop of BBQ sauce and a spaghetti garnish.”

Wonder what the poor quiche-addicted bastards at the Formula 1 race in Austin are eating?

“We have the best and most competitive form of racing in the world here at Talladega Superspeedway, and we have the most unique, tasty and ‘big’ menu items anywhere to go with it,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch, who, the last time we saw Grant, could afford to lose a few pounds. “At Talladega, ‘Size Matters’ and our fans won’t be disappointed with the incredibly large Talla-Mento Dogwich. It joins ‘The Big One’ Meatball as the most creative and delicious food items at any sporting event in the world.”
