Show info:

Chef Tyler Florence is back to host the fourth season of The Great Food Truck Race. Like last season, the food truck teams are made up of newbies who dream of one day operating their own mobile restaurant business. There’s a lot at stake: the winning team gets $50,000 and gets to keep their truck.

Each week one food truck team is eliminated on the 4,181-mile coast-to-coast road trip from Hollywood to Washington D.C.  Along the way Tyler puts the contestants through challenges, with each new one more difficult than the last. And this year the route is the longest yet, so these teams are in for the ride of their lives.

The new season of this popular reality cooking show competition has already visited the cities of Hollywood, San Francisco and Portland.  This past Sunday night the show visited Pocatello, Idaho.  Also appearing on the episode was Idaho grower/shipper/marketer Wada Farms Potatoes.

Chris Wada, Director of Marketing for Wada Farms stated, “What trip to Idaho would be complete without a visit to a famous Idaho potato field and shipping facility.  It was a lot of fun to be a part of the show and represent not just Idaho potatoes and the community, but also highlight America’s produce industry as a whole.”

Episode Synopsis:

The six teams remaining enter the mountains of Pocatello, Idaho. For their Speed Bump challenge, they have to rework their dishes to get rid of all starches on their menus. On day two, they’re given their Truck Stop challenge: they have to dig up the potatoes they need at a nearby farm, and they’ll need a lot, as the potatoes must be the main ingredient in all menu items. After reaching their sales goal, they race to a vista high above the city, where the first three teams to arrive win a reward, and the team who sold the least over the weekend is eliminated.
