As with the other battles, the truck that sells the most will win the challenge and receive  bragging rights, a sticker and a trophy.

The winning truck advances to the next round and will fight to retain the trophy.

“It’s all about supporting small businesses and giving them recognition,” Johnson said. 

The additional battles are being scheduled.
