The Great Food Truck Race

The Great Food Truck Race, hosted by Food Network chef Tyler Florence (pictured below), will hit the airwaves August 15th at 9pm. Today, the Food Network officially announced the show, while those who follow any of the ‘crews’ involved have probably had the competition and the show on their radar for quite sometime. Seven teams took the wheel on a cross country cookout, starting in LA and finishing in New York City.

Contestants include Austin Daily Press (Austin), Crepes Bonaparte aka Gaston (Fullerton, CA), Grill ‘Em All (Los Angeles), Nana Queens (Culver City), Nom Nom Truck (Los Angeles), Ragin’ Cajun (Hermosa Beach, CA), and Spencer on the Go (San Francisco).

We already set our Tivo.
