5. Tune in to Food Network’s Hit Culinary Competition “The Great Food Truck Race”

The Great Food Truck Race returns for a new season this Sunday at 9 PM. The show is heading north to Alaska! The six-episode season begins with seven teams of aspiring food truck owners greeted with their own trucks. These teams are not just battling each other, they are battling the elements of this beautiful but treacherous region to avoid elimination and reach the end of the road’s $50,000 grand prize. 

Austin will be represented by a Georgetown mom and her kids– together they are Team Oink Mobile. This close family is all about teamwork and ready to spread their love of bacon to the world.

Their pork-centric menu features dishes like their BLT, 50/50 half-beef and half-bacon burger, and of course, bacon mac and cheese. This close family is all about teamwork and ready to spread their love of bacon far and wide. Learn more HERE.
