The second season of The Great Food Truck Race hit the road last night with eight new food trucks and the bright lights of Vegas. With a grand prize of $100,000 on the line, each truck will try to pull out all their tricks to stay in the game, but ultimately, one truck must go each week. Every Monday, FN Dish will bring you exclusive exit interviews with the latest “Food Truck” contestants to get the boot.
This week, Sky’s Gourmet Tacos seemed to face one challenge after another — money, a blown-out tire and resulting time constraints — and unfortunately, Barbara, her son Victor and business partner Kevin had to say goodbye.
FN Dish: I originally thought the $500 was going to be your major setback due to pricey ingredients; however, it looks like your blown tire might have sent your team home. Tell us about that moment and what you did to make up for lost time and money.
SGT: At the time the tire blew, we were literally right in the middle of engaging team strategy for Vegas — the cameras were rolling. During those hours of delay in locating and then having the tire replaced, I missed 12 critical phone calls, including our confirmation call for the high school’s spring break student fundraiser of which we were the exclusive food vendor for 1,500 kids/parents/supporters.
