Get Ready to Roll This Sunday with The Great Food Truck Race

by in Shows, August 16th, 2013

The Great Food Truck RaceThis Sunday at 9pm/8c, The Great Food Truck Race, Season 4 premieres with all-new trucks, cities and challenges. It’s going to be the longest route yet for the food truck rookies, who will learn to operate a mobile business right on the road. But if that wasn’t enough, host Tyler Florence will be throwing Speed Bumps and Truck Stop challenges at them to see how they do: It could be anything from completely making over the menu to selling at a breakneck pace in order to be the first to win a cash prize. At the end of the race only one team will be left standing with $50,000 and the keys to their truck.

FN Dish recently caught up with members of Philly’s Finest Sambonis and The Frankfoota Truck, who were visiting New York. “You can expect absolute mayhem,” said Dana of The Frankfoota Truck, “especially in the beginning when none of us knows what we’re doing.” “It’s an emotional roller coaster,” said Joe from Philly’s Finest Sambonis. This season, expect to see some of the hardest challenges yet, which Erik of Philly’s can attest to: “We could have sat for three months trying to figure out what challenges would get thrown at us and we still wouldn’t have been able to figure them out.” But even with the competitiveness from each team, there was an element of camaraderie, as Dana explained: “In the beginning we all had our guard up, so it took a while for us to embrace the other teams; but once we did, it was a ball.”

    I find it hard to believe that the spud truck didn't know how to turn on their gas? How did they cook on the first leg in Beverly HIlls? And I would hope that they were given safety instructions, before being put on the road with a propane tank ……………Someone didn't show them how to turn on and off the propane before heading out on the road?…………very questionable indeed.

      Posted the same thing in another thread, I can't believe it wouldn't occur to any of them that they might need to turn the gas on. Agree that something that fundamental (and potentially dangerous) as operating a propane tank would have been reviewed before they got their keys.
