Imagine if ABC designed a Game Show based off Drives Like Crazy. Okay, now make contestants Hot-Blooded throw in some Car Fu, add a little Wipeout, and sprinkle liberally with exploding cars.Yeah, it's that kind of a show.Each show begins with five teams of two competing in various driving competitions. Basically, take every vehicle trope that exists, make it absurdly awesome, and make it a Crash Course event. Teams get eliminated until two remain, which take on an obstacle course to race for $50,000. Hosts Orlando Jones and Dan Cortese provide snarky commentary.It's either So Bad, It's Good, So Cool It's Awesome, or just insane car-related entertainment. Whatever you call it, it was the "Wipeout Lead-Out With a Slim Chance of Returning Next Season".

I Always Wanted To Do That: One contestant purposely drove off a truck ramp in attempt to flip his car. He nearly took out a few workers and a camera on a golf cart.
