The start of the fourth season of The Great Food Truck Race is less than a week away. Every day leading up to the premiere on Sunday, August 18 at 9pm/8c, FN Dish is introducing a new food truck team. With $50,000 in prize money and a free food truck on the line, it's a high-stakes race to the finish line.

Food Truck: Murphy's Spud Truck

Team Members: Suellen, James, Nicole (pictured above)

Home Base: Los Angeles

Food Concept: Gourmet stuffed potatoes with an Irish angle

Nicole, along with her mom, Suellen, and brother James, are determined to give the humble spud its moment of glory with an entire menu of gourmet stuffed potatoes inspired by their Irish heritage. After a traumatic surgery left culinary student Nicole drowning in medical bills, she took a number of odd jobs during her recovery to pay for bills. But not wanting to waste any more time, Nicole's ready to follow her dream and open Murphy's Spud Truck with her family. The trio is ready for the journey even if it means spending quality family time cooking — and complaining — in cramped quarters.

Check back on FN Dish every day to get to know the new Food Truck teams and for more exclusive content, behind-the-scenes images and interviews.
