The American version of The Great Food Truck Race will launch its first series on June 6 on Food Network UK.  

The 6 x 1-hour reality competition series from RelativityREAL for the Food Network is hosted by chef and presenter Tyler Florence. The Great Food Truck Race sees outrageous mobile food trucks cook their way across the U.S.

Seven teams compete to win over customers and sell the most food, to go on to the next city and challenge. The winning food truck wins a US$50,000 grand prize.

Host Florence says, “Some of the hottest restaurants have no tables, no chairs, no waiters, not even an address! What they do have are four wheels, and some serious competition!”

Great Food Truck Race will air on weeknights at  4 p.m. and 9 p.m. after its UK premiere on June 6.
