Meet the Ricky Bobby — A Torchy's taco exclusive to Texas Motor Speedway
Torchy's Tacos fans, it might be time for a pilgrimage up I-35 to Fort Worth. Texas Motor Speedway's location of the Austin-based restaurant has a taco exclusive to the racetrack, aptly named "the Ricky Bobby." And it's absolutely loaded with stuff.
For $10 and the price of a race ticket I presume, you get Fritos-coated fried chicken, refried beans, chorizo, bacon, green chiles, queso, pickled jalapeños, crushed chili cheese Fritos, sour cream, cheese and cilantro all wrapped in a flour tortilla that should probably be held together by an outside force, like toothpicks or duct tape.
Turns out, it's pretty hard to find the existence of this taco on the internet. We were only tipped off by a tweet from Fox 4's Shannon Murray reporting from the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 yesterday.

According to a follow-up to her original tweet, Murray was unable to try this tortilla-wrapped monstrosity — they were all sold out.
The Ricky Bobby has been available at the infield location since April 2018, and there are no plans to release it outside of Texas Motor Speedway at the moment, according to Torchy's Tacos.
This also isn't the only location-specific taco Torchy's has created. The Astros Minute Maid Park location has the “.45 Express,” made with a deep-fried, corn-tortilla-wrapped Nolan Ryan hot dog topped with hot Cheetos, Green Chile Queso, tortilla strips, cheese, pico de gallo, pickled jalapeños, sour cream and cilantro on a flour tortilla.
And of course, you don't have to go far to find a taco here — Torchy's has 15 locations in the Austin area.
