"The Great Food Truck Race" Season 4 kicks off on the Food Network with host Tyler Florence and a brand new cast of food truck hopefuls, who hit the road for the longest route in series history (4,181 miles) and exciting culinary challenges that celebrate the country's national landmarks from the Hollywood sign to South Dakota's Crazy Horse Memorial to Chicago's iconic Buckingham Fountain to the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. These competitors are not current food truck operators — they are eight teams of talented cooks with unique concepts and a dream to one day operate their own food truck business. Each three-person team is provided a vehicle for the race, but only the grand-prize winner gets to keep their food truck and a $50,000 cash prize to start their business.

The season's teams are Aloha Plate (Los Angeles, Maui and Oahu, Hawaii), Boardwalk Breakfast Empire (Sea Bright, N.J.), Bowled and Beautiful (Los Angeles), Frankfootas (New York), Murphy's Spud Truck (Los Angeles), Philly's Finest Sambonis (Philadelphia), The Slide Show (Los Angeles) and Tikka Tikka Taco (St. Louis).



In the season premiere, host Tyler Florence greets the eight teams in Los Angeles under the iconic Hollywood sign , and each team sees their custom-made truck for the first time. For their first challenge, he sends them to posh Beverly Hills for a contest in upscale sales: each team can only sell one signature dish on their menu — but that dish must be sold for at least $20 each. Tyler and the teams then head 380 miles north to San Francisco, where the trucks must pick a differ en t signature dish to sell exclusively. The team that earns the least amount with their two signature dishes is sent home. The route then sends the trucks to Portland, Pocatello, Idaho; Rapid City, S.D.; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Chicago, featuring guest stars Mayor Rahm Emanuel and legendary football coach Mike Ditka; and Washington D.C., where the life-changing grand prize is awarded in the season finale.
