Food Truck Road Trip

Season 3, Episode 1

3,559 Miles to a Dream

Eight teams of aspiring Food Truck owners arrive in Long Beach, Calif., to kick off this season's Great Food Truck Race: Lighthouse to Lighthouse. Host Tyler Florence welcomes the teams and presents them with the food trucks of their dreams and matching cars. The teams are then sent directly to the toughest, most cutthroat place in the food truck universe: the place where it all started, Los Angeles. These rookies learn quickly that running a food truck is much harder than it looks, and the seven surviving teams realize that they are in for the ride of their lives.

Music City Madness

The final four trucks head to the heart of the South in Nashville. For their Truck Stop Challenge, the teams have to create a down-home country style picnic for country music stars Joey & Rory. The competition shakes up when Tyler reveals the next Speed Bump: to simulate what happens when employees don't show up or call in sick, Tyler tells the teams that two members must sit out and they must train two students from the Art Institutes Culinary School to work on the truck.

Pocatello Is All About Potatoes, You Dig?

The six teams remaining enter the mountains of Pocatello, Idaho. For their Speed Bump challenge, they have to rework their dishes to get rid of all starches on their menus. On day two, they're given their Truck Stop challenge: they have to dig up the potatoes they need at a nearby farm, and they'll need a lot, as the potatoes must be the main ingredient in all menu items. After reaching their sales goal, they race to a vista high above the city, where the first three teams to arrive win a reward, and the team who sold the least over the weekend is eliminated.

A Food Truck Kind of Town, Chicago Is

Tyler starts the finalists off with a Chicago-style pizza challenge judged by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. After the mayor chooses the winner, the teams get ready to sell and are given their Speed Bump. The teams must keep a minimum of five dishes on their menu for the rest of the race. On day two, the teams must use another famed Chicago food in all their dishes — polish sausage. Once the teams sell 300 sausages, they race to Mike Ditka's restaurant, where he himself awards the prize and punishment. The winning team will get a five-hour head start to the next city.

Capital Gains

With their eyes on the grand prize, the final teams are sent to the east coast in this last leg of The Great Food Truck Race. After a stop in Annapolis, Md., the teams meet Tyler on a Chesapeake Bay island where they haul the crab that will become part of an original crab dish. It may be the most important dish they've ever cooked — as the team with the best crab dish wins a potentially game-changing $1,500 prize. After a surprise elimination, the final two teams are sent to the D.C. suburbs and then into Washington, D.C. where they meet Tyler in front of the U.S. Capitol building and find out who will win $50,000 and ride off in their new food truck.
