EIGHT TOP-NOTCH FOOD TRUCKS HIT THE ROAD FOR HIGH-STAKES TRIP OF A LIFETIME IN SEASON TWO OF THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK RACE

NEW YORK, - July 11, 2011 - Food Network competition series The Great Food Truck Race returns for a second season this summer with more - more teams, more cities, more grueling challenges and more prize money. Hosted by Tyler Florence, the series features eight of the top food trucks in the country battling for a life-changing $100,000 grand prize, double the cash prize awarded in season one. From delicious Cuban sandwiches to tasty vegan dishes and gourmet grilled cheese, the eight competing teams represent the best in food truck cuisine. The trucks spend one wild weekend in each city not only selling specialties from their mobile kitchens, but also competing in extreme challenges like butchering their own meat for barbecue in Memphis and foraging the mountains of Denver for wild mushrooms. Season two also amps up the action with special guest stars, including Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts and NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback John Elway. In the end, culinary chops, strategy and moxie will determine who wins the ultimate food truck prize. The seven-episode series premieres on Sunday, August 14th at 10pm ET/PT, after the finale of Food Network Star, and beginning the next week will air in its regular timeslot Sundays at 9pm ET/PT.

This season's competitors include: Café Con Leche (Los Angeles), Devilicious (San Diego), Hodge Podge (Cleveland), Korilla BBQ (New York), The Lime Truck (Irvine, Calif.), Roxy's Grilled Cheese (Boston), Seabirds (Costa Mesa, Calif.) and Sky's Gourmet Tacos (Los Angeles).

In the season premiere, Tyler greets all of the teams at the picturesque Malibu Pier and sends them on their first Truck Stop Challenge: to create an inventive dish with one lobster and all the farmer's table ingredients they can hold. After award-winning chef and food truck operator Susan Feniger chooses the winner, the trucks head to Las Vegas and are confronted with their first Speed Bump - Tyler spins a large wheel containing numerous food truck problems and lands on ´┐Żout of propane,' so the teams must proceed without use of this necessary fuel. At the end of two days in Vegas, the team that sells the least is sent on the road home. The cross-country route then takes the teams to Salt Lake City; Denver; Manhattan, Kan.; Memphis and Atlanta where the competition intensifies with more grueling challenges - leading up to the final battle between the two top trucks in sun-splashed Miami. The Great Food Truck Race is produced by RelativityREAL, LLC.

Beginning July 11th America's Favorite Food Truck Giveaway kicks off where fans nominate their favorite food truck to win a grand prize of $10,000. The voting starts on August 14th in conjunction with The Great Food Truck Race season two premiere, and the ultimate winner will be chosen via online and text message votes. One lucky fan who participates in the voting will also win a trip for two to the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival, September 29th - October 2nd. In 2010, almost 500 trucks were nominated and Big Truck Tacos of Oklahoma City was crowned the winner. More information is available at www.foodnetwork.com/foodtrucks.
