Seven Eight food trucks hit the road, and one rolls home with $100,000 in prize money. That's the premise for the second season of the six-city, six-week show, The Great Food Truck Race, that is currently being filmed for the Food Network.

Last weekend, the trucks set up shop in Denver, and right now they're on their way to Manhattan, Kansas, where they'll be filming from Thursday to Sunday. Host Tyler Florence is tweeting the entire journey, noting that Kansas State University is the next stop.

Although the lineup is supposed to be secret, the Internet and oodles of food bloggers have revealed that Seabirds (a vegan food truck from California), Hodge Podge (barbecue from Cleveland), Lime Truck (beach cuisine from California), Cafe Con Leche (Cuban food from New York City), Korilla BBQ (Korean BBQ from NYC), Roxy Grilled Cheese (Boston), and Devilicious (gourmet burgers and fries from California) are among the contestants. 

In each city (so far the tour has stopped in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Denver), the trucks have to source local ingredients and set up in what they hope is a good location. After that, the rules are simple. Whoever makes the least amount of money drives home. The rest of the caravan continues on the road. 

The Great Food Truck Race premieres Sunday, August 14, at 9 p.m. on the Food Network.
