The popular food/reality TV show, “The Great Food Truck Race” will be rolling into Salt Lake City this weekend to film a new episode.

According to The Food Network, the trucks will be visiting Salt Lake City this Saturday and Sunday, April 29-30. Fans will have to wait until then to find out where they will be located.

“The trucks determine their locations once they reach the city (on Friday) and determine the most effective way to promote/market that location. We cannot provide specific information. It’s a very underground/viral production,” a spokesperson said in an email.

The best way to find the trucks will be to follow Julie Sheehan of the Torta Truck and SuAnn Chow of Chow Truck, both have been contacted by The Food Network about pairing up with one of the teams.

The show, hosted by Tyler Florence, is now it its second season. Here’s how it works. Each week the competing food trucks stop in a different city. They have the weekend to strategize and sell food to the locals. The teams that sell the most move on to the next city and episode. The losing team drives home.

The last truck standing wins $50,000.
