The Great Food Truck Race: Eight teams hit the road to win $50,000

TGFTRSunday, August 18th, 9pm ET/PT is when the new, fourth season, of The Great Food Truck Race is set to premiere on Food Network. Eight teams of three will hit the road with one thing in mind – to be better than the competitors and win the grand prize of $50 000, not to mention the right to keep the food truck.

This season will take off from under the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles where all eight teams will see their custom-made trucks which they will be using throughout the competition. And their first challenge will be to sell their signature dish in Beverly Hills for at least $20 each.

During the 4181-mile journey (which is the longest in the series history) they will be visiting Capitol Building in Washington, Crazy Horse Memorial in South Dakota as well as Buckingham Fountain in Chicago.

They will be tested for the entrepreneurial as well as cooking skills. None of the contestants are currently food truck operators, but they all share the same dream – to one day operate their own food truck business.
