The starting point was in Long Beach, CA. This season they changed it up a bit by getting people who have the dream to own a food truck but don't have one yet; The winner of this year's GFTR gets to keep the truck + $50,000.
(from Food Network's press release, March 2012)
The Great Food Truck Race's third outing will have more drama, more twists, more strategy, but most of all, more dreams. Hosted again by Tyler Florence, this season's not a competition between current food truck operators - it's between people who desperately want to be. Eight teams of hopefuls will have their dream truck handed to them before they race from city to city trying to prove they have what it takes to own and operate a successful food truck, with the winning team will get to keep their truck and immediately launch their food empire.
|The kick-off was at Shoreline Village in Long Beach, California. |
