  • The five remaining teams meet Tyler at the Crazy Horse Memorial, where they’re given their seed money before heading out to shop in Rapid City, S.D. How will they manage when their follow car is taken during the Speed Bump? On day two, they race to the Wild Idea Buffalo Co., where they find a side of bison that they must butcher for use in all menu items. After selling $1,500 worth of their bison menu, they rush to be one of the first three teams to reach a vista and win a reward, and the next day the losing team is eliminated.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Four teams remain as they enter the Twin Cities — Minneapolis and St. Paul. In honor of the Twin Cities, Tyler gives the teams twin Truck Stops. On day one, to honor the Minnesota state fair, the teams must serve all of their menu items on a stick. On day two, the teams head into St. Paul and must make $500 selling SPAM dishes. The first team to make $500 and meet Tyler at the Peace Officers Memorial at the State Capitol building wins a huge reward, and with only four teams left, this reward could save a team from elimination and send them on to the next city.
