Sunny Lin ’06, Becca Plumlee ’06, and Sophia Woo ’06 won the Great Food Truck Race, which aired on the Food Network.

Raleigh-based food truck Pho Nomenal Dumpling took home the title of “Best Food Truck in America” and $50,000 during Sunday night’s finale of the Food Network’s “Great Food Truck Race.”

The Pho Nomenal team of Sunny Lin, Becca Plumlee, and Sophia Woo — all Class of 2006 — bested Waffle Love, a  truck out of Provo, Utah, in the final episode. This season had the trucks traveling famed Route 66.

“This competition shows that Pho Nomenal has everything it takes — the smarts, the food, the innovation —to compete with other professional food trucks,” Plumlee told WRAL.
