What better inspiration for a competitive reality show, than the place where you throw all caution to the delicious-smelling wind: food trucks!

The Great Food Truck Race is heading into Season 9, this time in the Wild West, where host, Tyler Florence, corrals several teams of brand new food trucks. They’ll use the West’s most killer ingredients, and travel across the desert to new towns. Their goal is to outsell the competition, and your goal is to resist the calling for takeout.

It’s the usual process of elimination (with some bankable disgusting mistakes and near-misses with knives) that narrows the on-wheels competition to 2 teams competing for $50,000.

The Great Food Truck Race is all new, Thursdays at 9/8c on Food Network Ch. 231.
