"R U Faster Than a Redneck" whole season spoilers

Show has Rednecks in hotrods racing Tuner cars on a 1 mile road course.

If you can get past the really bad comedy there is some great door to door racing in this show.

Some really good driving, and some really bad driving. Worth a look.

I love the unintentional comedy of Ken Squier announcing like it's the Indy 500 and John Reep doing all kinds of crazy stuff in the booth.

So far, the fastest car I've seen was a Nissan GT-R that had an average lap speed of 98.8 MPH. Fastest American car I've seen was a '69 Camaro that did 94+ MPH.

Edit: I just skimmed through the "Kenny's Driving School" episode again since I didn't note the speeds in that one. Kenny Wallace drives a 1977 Trans Am at 97.5 MPH, and the competitor drives a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo 95.2 MPH. So far, those are the four fastest average lap speeds I've seen.

I was very impressed by the driver of the Audi wagon, he was down about 100 HP and roughly the same weight as his competitor and the Audi driver made the win look easy. I am sure he has lots of track time in that Audi.

That was very impressive. Would be interesting to know what mods he had on there, because for a car that big and heavy, it sure handled great in the corners. That's how it was able to win. Those Detroit muscle cars rarely handle well, even when they've had lots of aftermarket suspension upgrades.
