Last night we viewed episode 3, season 1 of The Great Food Truck Race on The Food Network. Hosted by Tyler Florence, the show features seven food truck crews who compete on a six -week journey, selling their goodies in six city stops across the country. As season 1 rolls along, plans for season 2 are now on the road.
Four nominees from Arizona are racing for that chance to compete: Truckin'Good Food (Phoenix), Short Leash Hot Dog (Phoenix), Frostybottom Café (Greer), and Planet of the crepes (Summerhaven) need our votes.
