The Great Food Truck Race is back for a 8th season this August with a brand-new fleet of fierce competitors cooking and traveling across America's most famous stretch of road, historic Route 66. In a return to the show's roots, the seven teams are professional food truck operators from around the country who are known regionally for their culinary talents and selling skills - and they are ready to be recognized from coast to coast. The 2,500-mile, food-filled road battle kicks off in Santa Monica, California then hits Sedona, Arizona and Santa Fe, New Mexico followed by tasty stops in Amarillo, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma and St. Louis, culminating with an epic finale in Chicago, where the winning truck is awarded a $50,000 cash prize.
The race kicks off with a funnel eating contest at a theme park in Los Angeles; the families get their first challenge of creating the signature menu item; an all-out bidding war for a prime selling spot on the grounds of the theme park.
The teams take on a challenge of one sweet and one savory dish using locally-grown strawberries at the California Strawberry Festival in Ventura County; one team uses their family network to attract customers; another team can't get organized.
The remaining teams must face a challenge involving ostriches; the teams face setbacks in the Danish town of Solvang, Calif., where they're given a challenge steeped in the local culture; one team is sent home after a very close elimination.
The final three teams brave the sweltering heat of Palm Springs, Calif. as they take on a challenge of making something sweet to eat; the teams become human roadside attractions and create a costume to attract customers to their truck.
The final two teams become hot dog vendors to compete for a distinct advantage; the trucks have to catch a ferry to Catalina Island; the families face off to see who will win $50,000 and be crowned winner of The Great Food Truck Race.
