Set your DVRs or VCRs, and get ready to watch for your friends on television this weekend. The Fayetteville episode of The Great Food Truck Race airs at 8 p.m. CST Sunday, Sept. 9. on the Food Network.
The episode was filmed in Fayetteville from May 25-27, and followed five food trucks to various locations around town. Over the course of the weekend, trucks were spotted at local landmarks including Razorback Stadium, Dickson Street, and the Fayetteville square. Several locals even signed waivers to appear on the show.
The episode is part of a seven-show reality series hosted by Tyler Florence which follows food truck operators in a journey from Los Angeles to the East Coast as they try to sell their culinary creations.
Each week, contestants set up in a new town, purchase food for their trucks, and find a spot to sell their unique dishes. Whichever contestant sells the least food each week is eliminated. The team left standing at the end of the season will drive off with $50000 and the keys to their dream food truck.
The five trucks remaining on the show in Fayetteville were Coast of Atlanta from Atlanta, Ga.; Pop-A-Waffle from Los Angeles, Calif.; Momma’s Grizzly Grub from Wasilla, Alaska; Seoul Sausage from Los Angeles, Calif.; and Nonna’s Kitchenette from Parsippany, N.J.
The Food Network airs on Cox Communications channel 54, or 2054 in HD.
