Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race returns for the third season on Sunday, August 19th at 10pm ET/PT. They return with a brand new twist. If in prior seasons current good truck operators were competing each other, this third season is different. No more current operators, this year the competition takes place between eight three-person teams, all teams fighting for the same goal - to earn the right to keep their food truck given by the show and a $50 000 cash price to start their own food truck business.
The participants are all with insane culinary skills and the will to have their own food truck company.
"Their culinary skills, business savvy and entrepreneurial spirit will be road-tested, and viewers will love seeing if the aspiring chefs’ dreams hold up when the rubber meets the road," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network.
The cross-country televised road trip, full of challenges, hosted by Tyler Florence, begins at a Long Beach, Calif. lighthouse and the finish line is located at the easternmost point of the United States, at the West Quoddy Lighthouse in Maine.
Don't forget to tune in for the premiere of the culinary road trip on Sunday, August 19th at 10pm ET/PT, after the finale of Chopped: Grill Masters.
