According to the newspaper:
A segment on the Doolittle restaurant’s recent Route 66 Burger Challenge was filmed last week […] and a followup session was recorded Tuesday at the Phelps County site.
The focus of the show is on the Route 66 Burger Challenge that began in February at Cookin’ From Scratch.
The challenge featured a 66-ounce King of the Road burger. Those willing to take on the task had 66 minutes to finish their meal. The contest drew diners from throughout the region.
Leftfield Pictures, based in New York, was filming the segment. Leftfield has also produced “Pawn Stars” and “American Restoration,” both on the History Channel.
“Truck Stop Missouri” takes place mostly at the Midway Travel Plaza off Interstate 70 near Columbia. The truck stop also boasts an eating challenge — 70 ounces of mashed potatoes and gravy.
