"THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK RACE" TAKES ON THE WILD WEST IN RETURN OF SUMMER PRIMETIME SERIES

Host Tyler Florence Kicks Off Season Nine with New Fleet of Food Truck Hopefuls on Thursday, July 26th at 9pm ET/PT

NEW YORK - June 20, 2018 - The Great Food Truck Race takes a culinary road battle through the Wild West this summer, with seven teams of food truck hopefuls competing to win a $50,000 grand prize. Hosted by Tyler Florence, the trip hits hot spots in the Southwest to test the competitors' cooking chops, selling skills and business savvy. Each week, the teams hit a new city for fierce food challenges, and the least successful truck heads home - until the one team left standing is awarded $50,000. The Great Food Truck Race kicks off Thursday, July 26th at 9pm ET/PT and the winning truck will be named in the season finale on Thursday, August 30th at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network.

"Every summer, our viewers look forward to hitting the highway for a scenic road trip with a brand-new roster of food trucks," said Courtney White, Executive Vice President, Programming, Food Network and HGTV. "These teams bring their food and business A-game to the race, but only one will cross the finish line $50,000 closer to achieving their dreams."

This season's competitors are: Buns N' Thighs - Chicago, Illinois (Marla Nones, Victoria Elena Nones, Ian M. Sherwin); Chops' Shop - Pearland, Texas (Sonia Buckelew, Bryan Soliz, Sandra Soliz); Heroes on a Half Shell - Frederick, Maryland (Clinton Sheron, Danni Sheron, Donna Sheron); Just Wing It - New York, New York (Steven Crowley, Kevin Pettice, Sharon Shvarzman); Mobile Moo Shu - Detroit, Michigan (Michelle Gautier, Chelsea Smith, Marley Vanderbrook); New England Grill - Newport, Rhode Island (Kevin Des Chenes, Christine Hurley, Ed Gallagher) and Sassy Soul - Silver Spring, Maryland and Washington D.C. (Lauren Carson, Paris Henry, Parris Jewel).

In the season premiere, the race kicks off at a cattle ranch outside of Los Angeles, where the teams must hand squeeze orange juice to get the keys to their truck. Later, each team has to create a dish with cuts of beef won in an auction and add it to their menu. Upcoming episodes feature an ultimate shrimp dish challenge in Las Vegas; battle of the beverages in Phoenix; a visit to the historic Territory Prison in Yuma; a date-themed competition in Coachella Valley and a Mexican-flavored return to Los Angeles for the finale where the last truck standing wins $50,000.
