Have any of you guys caught this show on the speed channel? Pretty neat show where they find guys with imports to race against early model muscle cars. Not too many pontiacs on there but I have seen a really bad ass trans am on there. Mostly camaros, mustangs, and mopar cars on there. The host is really funny. My 3 yr old and I love the show.

My buddy was just telling me about this show, I was asking the stipulations cause I have a semi-track prepped evo and he said an Audi wound up winning one.

I thought I was going to hate it. It's actually very funny and entertaining. I'm hooked.

problem is this drivel and other reality trash has forced real racing such as the Aussie V8 Supercars & World Superbikes off Speed......the channel has become nothing but Nascrap and trash reality programmes.....

LOL That and the race with the Superchicken were my favorite moments so far. Some of the more serious ricers are fast though, those guys are gonna have to really stepup.

I watched the super chicken episode last night. I really hate the whole ******* shtick. That show could have been really good but they had to go with a low rent Larry the cable guy knockoff and dumb it down for the absolute lowest denominator of the NASCAR fan base.

Having just a very small amount of door-to-door track racing under my belt, I was really put off by that "bitch slap" scene. The BMW driver was IN FRONT, had the correct line, and got side swiped by this idiot ******* trying to dive bomb him in a turn. If it were me, it would have been on like Donky Kong.

Other than that, I find the premise amusing, but it loses a little in that fully track prepped "classic american muscle" goes up against street imports. That's how it has to be, I suppose.
Having Ken Squires (one of the old Olympics announcers IIRC) do the commentary helps a lot.

Yeah but...in the minds of so many (I used to be one of them), "there's no way that old ass *insert classic American muscle car here* can beat my lightweight-technologically advanced-tuned-blah blah blah *insert import car here*. I can see past the ******* part now and enjoy the racing part. I'm a fan of most of the cars on either side of the coin BUT I cheer for the ******** because I like to see the Pro-Touring cars whoop up on newer cars.
