In one what has to be the coolest crossover since Mega Race, stars from two of Discovery Channel’s biggest shows will face off in a drag race of – quite literally – epic proportions. For those who haven’t seen them, there are facilities popping up across the country where regular people like you and I can pay to rent massive earth-moving equipment for a couple of hours. However, you don’t rent them to do work, you just rent them to play on. Think go kart track meets open pit mining.
It doesn’t take long to realize something like this is right up Farmtruck and AZN’s alley, as those guys are always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to have fun, and this is definitely that! While they may not have any experience at the controls of this huge equipment, you can bet they figured it out pretty quick, and almost as quickly, they figured out a way to race it. Of course, Farmtruck is usually the more experienced guy when it comes to hustling up a race, but that’s not the case this time, as they run upon an opponent with a few decades more experience operating these machines. Over the past couple of years, we’ve gotten to know the cast of Discovery Channel’s Friday night smash hit Gold Rush, a show that follows the mining successes – and failures – of a few gold mining operations in Alaska.
One of these operations is headed up by Tony Beets, the grizzled veteran that has gone from milking cows to stacking gold bars thanks to years of hard work and some of the best gold-finding skills you’ll ever see. Tony is probably as comfortable operating a massive excavator or bulldozer as most of us are behind the wheel of a car, so needless to say, Farmtruck will have his work cut out for him when it comes time to drop the flag and take on the bearded mining legend.
If you want to see how it ends, you’ll have to tune in tomorrow night and see how it goes down on Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws.
