Food Truck Road Trip

Season 2, Episode 2

A Pinch of Salt Lake City

The seven remaining teams roll into Salt Lake City, and Tyler immediately explains the Truck Stop challenge: the teams must create an original sausage dish with the ingredients on the farmer's table, but the sausage is missing. The trucks head to world renowned Creminelli Fine Meats and create three customized links of sausage in hopes to impress guest judge chef Ryan Lowder and add $200 towards their final tally. The Speed Bump adds another game-changing twist as Tyler calls the teams and tells them to move the trucks to a new location, no matter how many patrons are on line.

Miami Heat

The final two teams arrive in Miami to a breathtaking view of this iconic city and receive their final challenge — each team must make $15,000 dollars and then race to the finish line in South Beach, and the winner gets the $100,000 grand prize. Of course, the finale is filled with twists and turns that no team can anticipate and the first Speed Bump creates chaos as Tyler has both trucks towed away in the middle of the night. Then, the teams are rocked with a second Speed Bump - their current locations are shut down and they must head to the Cuban enclave of Little Havana. On day three, the finalists meet Tyler at the Miami River for the long awaited Truck Stop challenge: the teams will create a delicious seafood dish for local chef Michael Schwartz, but they must head out on fishing boats in the Atlantic Ocean to catch the fish on their own. As the trucks close in on the grand prize, it's time for the final Speed Bump - the teams must shut down and become a dessert truck for two hours on the final day.

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.

Mistake by the Lake?

Outback Co-Founder and Executive Chef Tim Gannon visits the trucks to sample the food and determines the winner ... and the losers suffer through a "punishment" at a restaurant owned by a previous Great Food Truck Race contestant! Tyler also mixes things up with a hilarious Speed Bump: the teams must transfer their entire operation to a hot dog cart and continue to make sales on foot.
