Top Gear USA: American Muscle



A new episode of Top Gear USA went on air last night on HISTORY and it starts with American vintage street muscles restored and modified to go faster than they were ever was. Tanner chose a 1967 Mustang Shelby GT500 while Rut's on the 1972 Dodge Charger SE and Adam chose a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. Three muscle cars from Detroit's big three have gathered to settle their differences and only two will take part in the Gatornationals drag race.

The first challenge took place at an airstrip where they put their cars' reaction speed to the test. Get it wrong and they'll get jolted with a nasty shock. At the end of the challenge, even though Rut got shocked numerous times, he wins that round.

Second challenge involves cones...and a box full of insects inside! That serves as the test for the driver's concentration. Lowest BPM wins. While Tanner and Adam panicked while driving, Rut takes things calmly, prompting him to win this challenge.

On the final challenge, the drivers will dare to make their cars some noise so loud enough, civilian vehicles will sound their alarms but they have to act fast though because...people are watching and only Adam and Tanner will face. After Tanner made several car alarms blaring, only Rutledge Wood and Tanner Foust will take on the NHRA Gatornationals.

For the Gatornationals event, the Dodge Challenger Drag Pack and the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet are provided for Rut and Tanner. Tanner goes for the Cobra Jet while Rut goes for the Mopar Challenger and they'll take on a best-of-3 match at the drag strip but first, these two are trying to figure out how to use these drag monsters.


After hours of warm up, it's showtime. Tanner and Rut in a best-of-3 duel and they'll have to give everything they got to prove who's the fastest. In the first round, the Challenger Drag Pack's high torque caused it to lift high, prompting Tanner and the Cobra Jet to win. In the second round, Rut and the Challenger got things right and won the race against Tanner.

In the final round, you won't believe what Rut did to the Challenger! He send this Dodge flying high! Awesome but it's a disaster for Rut as Tanner Foust won the drag race by a huge margin! That's it! Another Tuesday night, another Top Gear USA awesomeness.
