How to Get on Truck Night in America


1/17/19 Update: We might as well say something right here and clear up any confusion. BendPak is not affiliated with Truck Night in America, and we cannot get you on the show. Our updates and information come at our own discretion and are not reflective of History Channel’s stances or opinions. We just really like trucks.

5/1/18 Update: APPLY TO BE ON SEASON TWO NOW!!! (Sorry for shouting.)

Last month we announced that a new History Channel production, Truck Night in America, would be airing on prime-time television. We were excited about the idea of big ol’ trucks being built to spec, getting ruined by mud and abuse, and then brought back to life again on a weekly basis. As it turns out, we’re not alone. The show’s premiere broke the Top 40 most watched shows. That’s not bad, considering the main competition was basketball, basketball and more basketball, as well as other mainstream media news programs.

Keep an eye on their unofficial Facebook to see how to get on the show

The comments section on this blog was full of responses to the show. Some loved it, some wanted more. Feedback like that pretty much comes with the territory of any new show. Most people, however, wanted to know how to get on Truck Night in America to become a contestant. To be honest, we were initially a bit  flummoxed. There’s no information on (what we think is) the show’s official Facebook page, and we couldn’t find it on the production company’s site, either.

Then came a stroke of luck. Teresa Lummus, a contestant on the show, reached out and had this to say:

I saw a post on Facebook about a new show being cast. I clicked on the link and filled in the info. When they start casting for season 2 I’m sure it will be on the Facebook page

But, we have an update! You can now APPLY TO BE ON SEASON TWO! No idea how long this link will be active, so act quickly.

BendPak loves car and truck shows, so we’ll keep this blog updated with information on how to get on Truck Night in America, as well as other news about the shows you love. If you’ve got questions and would like to see answers, let us know!

Thanks for reading, drivers.

    Give me a run, I built my jeep from other jeeps. It’s a YJ rock crawler, with unbreakable motor mounts. Plus I don’t need a spotter ever, spots stop my trail, why I don’t do jeep jambos. I’m a fab/welder and an offgrid fixer. Nice u have a shop. Maybe one day.

    My pal Bill submitted to be on the show, but we all here are just a bunch of rednecks and no nothing about how to post u tube and other things. We just good ol boys doing what we love to do. He really wanted to be on the show to show off his redneck yeller truck and what it will do. He’s definitely not scared. Thats why everyone calls him Crazy Bill.. let the ol fella come turn that truck loose. Yall wont be sorry.

    I would love to see what my 2012 ram 1500 could do on the show like this. 35s on a 6 inch lift automatic transmission 411 gears for roughly 430 horsepower. I love to watch this show everytime it comes on. Its thrilling suspenseful and amazing to see what these rings could do. I would love the opportunity to give this a try.

    Since you made it all fords ,hope you loose lots of viewers,

  15. Max Glassburg writes:

    Hi Denny. Sorry you feel that way, but we don’t actually “make” anything on the show, nor do we have a hand in production. And we couldn’t possibly dictate which makes of vehicles the contestants own. There must be a Chevy and a Dodge in there somewhere!

    I have a 1988 Toyota truggy.
    I’d like to be in the contest.

    I applied for the casting call. The show is inspiring. Waiting for a reply from the producers. If accepted I plan on running my 2011 Jeep Wrangler JKU. Its a slow and steady crawler. Dana 44 rear, Dana 30 front, air lockers all around, winch, 6” teraflex lift, Fox 2.0s all around. Running 35’s right now. I think I’m going to gut the interior if on the show since this truck is my baby. Probably too nice of a rig to run on the show but really why have one if your not going to use it once in a while. The Jeep wranglers seem to do pretty well on the show even the stock v six rigs. If I won I’d use the cash to swap out to a Cummins diesel.

    That’s awesome, Jasen! Best of luck to you.

    I want to know if they give anything to the contestants in regards to vehicle repairs. $10,000 is nice, but some of the damage done to many of the vehicles on this show seems like it would drastically cut into the reward.
