8 New Food Trucks Ready to Roll by Sarah De Heer in Shows, May 21st, 2011
The second season of The Great Food Truck Race is hitting the road, with chef Tyler Florence returning as host. While you’ll have to wait until Sunday, August 14 to watch the first episode, we can give you a first look now.
Eight trucks from around the country, with three contestants each, embark on a culinary road trip, coming face-to-face with conditions including: weather problems, location mishaps, food sourcing issues and ever-changing customer taste buds. Let’s not forget to factor in the dynamic of the teams, many of them with existing relationships such as: brother and sister, best friends, mother and son and husband and wife to-be.
What’s on the line? The last truck standing wins $100,000 ($50,000 more than last year’s grand prize) and bragging rights.
