Great Food Truck Race 5

TUCSON, AZ – The Food Network is bringing its popular food-truck-focused show to Tucson.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that several mobile kitchens will be at the Pima Air and Space Museum on Monday to film a segment for the “The Great Food Truck Race.”

Officials say filming begins around 9:15 a.m. and will be open to any guests who pay museum admission.

The trucks will be in front of some of the museum aircraft, including the Air Force One that carried President John F. Kennedy.

However, they will not be serving food.

“The Great Food Truck Race,” hosted by Tyler Florence, is filming its fifth season. The competition show puts several teams through cooking challenges in different cities.

The winner gets $50,000 and a food truck.

At least three of the competing trucks, the Lone Star Chuck Wagon, Let There Be Bacon and Military Moms, have posted to their Twitter and Facebook feeds that they will be selling in Tucson this weekend, although none of them mentioned the show by name or specific locations.

A post featured on the Edhat Santa Barbara website about the competition filming in Southern California, includes shots of the Chuck Wagon, Let There Be Bacon and Military Moms, as well as the food trucks, Beach Cruiser: Fresh California Cuisine, The Middle Feast, The Gourmet Graduates and the Chatty Chicken.

You may have missed it, but the mobile food industry is growing faster than anyone would have guessed two years ago. It can be difficult to keep up with the new trucks and carts as they pop up throughout the country. Because of this, Mobile Cuisine Magazine assists our readers weekly by posting the names and information about these trucks, so if they happen to be in your area, you can begin to follow them, or at least keep any eye out for them on the roads and cart pods.
