The Great Food Truck Race Returns

**Compensation is received for posting. Opinions are owned by this site.
Food Network TV is one of the only channels I watch. I love to be inspired and get ideas for meal times at home. I am no where near as good as the competitors on these various cooking shows, but I learn from them. I make the best seasoned mashed potatoes, thanks to watching shows on Food Network TV. One of the shows I love is The Great Food Truck Race.

Back for a sixth season, this August, The Great Food Truck Race is on with a brand-new fleet of fierce competitors. These food trucks that are competing, are cooking and traveling their way across America's most famous road, historical Route 66. I don't know about you but I love the show, and the fact it will be trekking down that famous stretch of road appeals to me too! Route 66 is on my bucket list!



Going back to the show's roots, the seven competitors are professional food truck operators and cooks. They are known regionally around the country for their culinary talents and selling skills. Now they want to be known coast-to-coast as well. I like this idea a lot. Most shows change things up throughout the season to keep the interests of viewers, but for me, the first season is what catches your attention. Bringing it back to where it all began, after five more seasons, recaptures my interest.


This food battle kicks off in Santa Monica, California, and lasts 2500 miles till they get to the $50,000 cash prize. That prize is awarded in Chicago in an epic finale.
Other stops include:
  • Sedona, Arizona
  • Sante Fe, New Mexico
  • Amarillo, Texas
  • Tulsa, Oklahoma
  • St.Louis, Missouri
I know if I was in any of these cities, I would be looking for the food trucks that are competing. What a great event, and if you could watch in person or even taste the food, what a thrill that would be! Now, I'm not sure when they are making the stops, but I am sure it will be the news around town when it's about to happen. So watch for it!

Here is what the senior V.P. of Food Network thinks about this season; 

“These skilled food truck entrepreneurs and our viewers are in for the road trip of their lives,” said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. “Their journey across historic Route 66 reflects food culture itself: fast, intense, creative and delicious.”

Sounds like it is going to be the best season ever!! Won't you join in and watch?



Hosted by Tyler Florence, this six episode series by Food Network TV is one you won't want to miss. Catch it all Sunday, August 23rd at 9pm EST.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
