Race Cars, Trivia & $25,000 On The Line!
After watching Mexico native Daniel Suarez win both the Xfinity Race and Championship; NASCAR Race Mom enjoyed watching her buddy’s, Rutledge Woods, new television show – ‘Shot Gun.’ The show combines a trivia game with the thrills of crazy fast hot laps and is hosted by the charismatic Woods. Six contestant fight for the winner takes all - $25,000 prize.
NRM recognized the track Irwindale Speedway as it is very close to my home. I was a tad disappointed that I was not notified about the taping so that I could cover it. However, that was my only disappointment about this show.
“Shotgun” is an eight-episode series that is billed as a “high-octane automotive quiz show” that tests contestants’ ability to answer questions while riding in the passenger seat of a professional race car.* The competitors experienced speed in four different Toyota pro-model race cars around four diverse courses.
The first four episodes were made available on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app on November 6th, after the NBC’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race coverage from Texas Motor Speedway.
