The trucks are back! Starting Sunday, Aug. 23 at 9|8c, The Great Food Truck Race will begin its sixth season in Santa Monica as the food truck operators head out for their 2,500-mile journey along America’s historic Route 66. They’ll be making stops in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Illinois before finishing with an action-packed finale in Chicago. Host Tyler Florence will be leading the teams, this time professional food truck operators, through numerous difficult challenges geared at testing their resolve as a mobile business. The winning food truck team will walk away with $50,000 in cash.
