Cooks, Start Your Engines!

Tyler Florence hosts an all-new season of The Great Food Truck Race and the competitors are stronger than ever. Let's meet this year's food truck teams.

Buns N' Thighs

Ian, his girlfriend, Victoria, and her mother, Marla, hope to take home the win with their signature sandwiches. The biggest challenge for this trio will be managing the stress of competition. "When we get stressed, we take it out on each other," Victoria said.

Chop Shop

A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and the owner of a catering company, Bryan has plenty of experience in the kitchen. Now, with his mom and his aunt by his side, he's taking his talent for tamales on the road.

Heroes on a Half Shell

Donna, a mother of seven, teamed up with her oldest son, CJ, and her youngest daughter, Danni, to bring her healthy submarine sandwiches to the masses.

Just Wing It

Kevin, Sharon and Steven met as contestants on season 12 of Worst Cooks in America. "It awakened something in the three of us that we never thought we had," Sharon said. After tasting Kevin's chicken, Steven said, "Oh, we need to do THAT!"

Mobile Moo Shu

Marley, Chelsea and Michelle are three besties ready to roll the dice on their dreams of owning a food truck. Michelle and Marley started cooking together in college, and Chelsea learned to cook while teaching in China. Their food truck specializes in Asian fusion comfort food.

New England Grill

Chefs Eddie G and Kevin along with Christine, a stand-up comedian, are taking the flavors of New England on the road. From lobster to scallops to Yankee pot roast sliders, they're bringing a bit of the east out west.
