The contestants for Season 2 of The Great Food Truck Race have been announced, and Korilla BBQ is representing the Big Apple this year.  The Season 2 premiere is Sunday, Aug. 14th at 10pm on the Food Network. There are 8 food trucks competing for the $100,000 Grand Prize.  Click through to meet the contestants, and to find out how you can win a trip worth $5,000 to the NYC Wine & Food Festival.

New York Street Food readers will be familiar with Korilla BBQ, who we’ve been talking about since going to their Launch Party last October, and have become quite friendly with over the last 9 months.

The other 7 contestants are Cafe Con Leche from L.A., Devilicious Food Truck from San Diego, Hodge Podge from Cleveland, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese from Boston, Seabird’s Food Truck from Costs Mesa (CA), Sky’s Gourmet Tacos from L.A. and The Lime Truck from Irvine, CA. You can read more about them here.

We’re sure all the contestants are great, but with a horse in this race, we’re rooting for our home town buds, Korilla BBQ.

With filming already done for Season 2 and the contestants sworn to secrecy, The Great Food Truck Race is already looking for contestants for Season 3.

You can win a trip worth $5,000 to the NYC Wine & Food Festival by nominating your favorite food truck here. You need to nominate them by August 5th, and then starting August 14th, vote for your favorite food truck and receive an entry into the sweepstakes for this great trip. You can vote once per day, and each vote gives you an entry into the sweepstakes.

Let’s try to nominate at least one more NYC truck for Season 3 of The Great Food Truck Race. There are way too many West Coast trucks in Season 2.
