Plot Synopsis

Each one-hour episode of TRUCK NIGHT IN AMERICA 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 and handling. Between each challenge competitors demonstrate their craftsmanship by re-engineering their trucks for the next round. The last two finalists standing then take on a three-mile, truck killing 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. With the assistance of four experts, owners compete for the chance to drive away with $10,000 and the title of Truck Night Champion. The four expert coaches are: 'Pistol' Pete Sohren, a desert racing champion and truck builder; Glen Plake, an extreme sports pioneer and dirt track racer; Abe Wine, a truck builder and master fabricator; and Rob 'Bender' Park, a rock crawling champion and master fabricator. These four experts offer tough love and their professional perspective on each contender's strategy and performance.
