Tyler Florence Returns As Host in Season Premiere on Sunday, August 17th at 9pm ET/PT

The Great Food Truck Race is back for a fifth season this summer, with a brand-new cast of food truck hopefuls on a high-stakes culinary road trip with a new route from sunny Southern California to the beaches of Key West, Fla. These contenders are not current food truck operators – they are eight teams of rookies who have food skills, fresh concepts, an entrepreneurial spirit and the dream to one day own a food truck business. Each three-person team is provided a vehicle for the race, but only the grand-prize winner gets to keep their food truck and a $50,000 cash prize to start their business. From Sonoran hot dogs in Tucson, Ariz. and Austin’s turbo-charged food scene in Texas to Oklahoma City burgers, hand-rolled ravioli in St. Louis and Alabama’s shrimpin’ country in Mobile, each team’s cooking and sales strategies are put to the test in city-specific challenges in every location. Hosted by Tyler Florence, the seven-episode series premieres on Sunday, August 17th at 9pm ET/PT.
