Motor Mega Week includes the season finale for Street Outlaw: Memphis and a sneak peek of American Chopper.
You can look forward to four consecutive nights of epic car builds leading up to the thrilling Mega Race finale as Richard Rawlings from Fast N’ Loud together with his Gas Monkey team take on the 405 crew from Street Outlaws. And for the first time, Tom Smith and Thomas Weeks from Misfit Garage, together with their team from Fired Up Garage, will duke it out against Farmtruck and AZN from Street Outlaws. The Gas Monkey and 405 crews are joined on the track by NASCAR driver Kyle Busch, who ensures neither team bends the rules.
