Jamie McMurray discusses carne asada and an emotional ending to the Daytona 500
Part of the bus tour through Los Angeles with Daytona 500 winner Jamie McMurray included a stop at King Taco in Boyle Heights for lunch. On the way to King Taco, McMurray talked to fans about his favorite foods, the dangers of racing stock cars and why he got so emotional after winning the Daytona 500.
McMurray needed a quick lesson in Mexican food, specifically the difference between carne asada and carnitas. He prefers steak over pork. Give McMurray credit for choosing the spicy red salsa over the milder green salsa for his carne asada tacos.
Boxer Israel Vazquez joined the McMurray tour at King Taco.
