One for the history books, the NASCAR Cafe in Las Vegas Nevada used to have a 6 pound burrito challenge. Over 4000 tried, with only 42 completing the challenge in less than 90 minutes. While one burrito challenge dies, surely there must be another somewhere to take its place?

When the burrito leaves the kitchen, itís announced over a public address system like a train arriving at a station or a boxer entering a ring. The fight is between the burrito and the guy who thinks he can take it down. If the burrito wins, it costs $20. If you win, the burrito is free and you get a lifetime pass on the Saharaís roller coaster. And probably a car to yourself when you ride it.
