You nominated 37 food trucks all fighting for bragging rights from the following counties: Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Calhoun, St. Joseph, Branch, Allegan and Barry.  To say that this was a close race from beginning to end would be a huge understatement.  We saw some of the usual suspects and a few new trucks pull into the top 10 this year.  Congrats to all of the hard working Southwest Michigan food trucks that were nominated.
