Season two of The Great Food Truck Race, which rolled into Denver in May, is currently airing on the Food Network, and on Sunday night, the Denver episode took center stage, spotlighting a slew of local food trucks, recognizable landmarks and markets and familiar faces, including the Steuben's truck, Marczyk Fine Foods, Washington Park, John Elway -- who issued the requisite roadblock challenge to the participating trucks -- and chef Frank Bonanno, who granted one truck, Lime, $200 in seed money after the truck's cooks whipped up the best dish using wild mushrooms foraged in Evergreen.
And to celebrate season two, the Food Network announced a sweepstakes whereby you can nominate your favorite food truck; the ultimate victor in the competition -- the truck with the most votes -- gets $10,000 and the opportunity for airtime on season three of The Great Food Truck Race. The nomination process has come and gone, but from now until September 12, you can still vote for the truck that you think slings the best grub.
And there are numerous contenders from Colorado:
Chef Driven; Coco, The Springs Cupcake Truck; Crepe Crusaders; Crock Spot; Her Story Cafe; Manna From Heaven; Mobile Hash Joint; Mythos Greek; N.Z.'s Smokin' Guns; Quiero Arepas; Steuben's; Stick It to Me; Sweet 'Ness Cupcakes; The Denver Cupcake Truck; and the Uber Sausage.
