The reality show competition features a total of eight teams composed of three individuals who have never owned or operated a food truck. Food Network provides each team with a food truck to travel across the country from Santa Barbara, California, to Key West, Florida, partaking in a series of challenges testing their skills in running a food truck. At the end of each competition, one truck will be eliminated; the winning team will be awarded the keys to the food truck and $50,000 to kick-start their new business.
Lance Kramer along with his wife Rachel Young and their best friend Andrea Chesley make up the Lone Star Chuck Wagon food truck team. Kramer is the brains behind the operation, while Chesley serves as his sous chef and Young keeps everything in tip-top shape.More »
