Love cars? Love trucks? Love mud? Then you must love a good time. And you must be getting excited about Truck Night in America, premiering on Thursday, March 8, 10PM ET/PT. If you’re reading this, you probably love trucks as much as any red-blooded American, and this is a show all about building the most brutal, bone-crushing machines, and then racing them under the most strenuous conditions.
Each episode of this competition series features five drivers in their personal customized trucks and jeeps going head to head in three challenges, each testing a different vehicle attribute: speed, strength or handling. Between each challenge, competitors demonstrate their craftsmanship by re-engineering their trucks for the next round. The last two men or women standing will have to suffer a three-mile-long obstacle course known as “The Green Hell,” which challenges trucks and drivers to fly off jumps, climb a mountain of crushed cars, and tear through a snake-infested swamp.
Five Will Enter, One Will Win
Only the best driver will take home the prize money and be crowned “Truck Night Champion.” These folks are not simply driving cars in circles around a controlled track. They’re putting their best stuff through the worst imaginable conditions to see who survives.
According to Eli Lehrer, History Channel’s Executive Vice President of Programming, “Since 1925 when the first American factory-produced truck rolled off the line, owners have been devising ingenious ways to make them faster, stronger and better… this can be seen with the tough competitors in our new series.”
Be sure to tune in, and don’t be afraid to get a little dirty.
