"VEGAS RAT RODS" REVS UP FOR SEASON TWO MONDAY, OCTOBER 19 AT 10:00 PM ET/PT ON THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL
(Los Angeles, Calif.) The rebels of the car world are back! Season Two of VEGAS RAT RODS premieres Monday, October 19 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel and returns to the network's "Motor Mondays" lineup, cable's Monday night destination for all-motor programming.
VEGAS RAT RODS follows Steve Darnell - a Las Vegas native and auto mastermind - as he and his team of mechanics, automotive fabricators and welders rebuild one-of-a-kind Mad Max-style "rat rod" cars out of hidden treasures buried in junkyards, farmers' fields and swap meets. Working out of Welderup, a sprawling garage just off the Las Vegas Strip, Darnell and his crew take creativity and imagination to another level as they assemble each rat rod into a masterpiece that represents each of their very quirky and very demanding clients.
Big changes are in store for the upcoming season, including more car action than ever before in one of America's best car towns - Las Vegas! In addition to Welderup expanding into a new and improved car shop, Darnell and his crew will take on bigger and badder builds for new clients with even more eccentric needs. But no challenge is too big for Darnell and his team. In each episode, the Welderup team not only has to meet the high expectations of their clients, but also build the vehicle in less than 10 days.
As Welderup continues to grow, family becomes more important than ever to Darnell and the team. As the crew settles into its new home, for the first time, Darnell's two teenage sons Chase and Kash are given responsibilities at the shop and the opportunity to learn the business from their father. Additionally, a new crew member joins the Welderup team this season. With 25 years of car experience under his belt, Grant makes the big move from small-town Canada to prove himself in the Las Vegas big leagues. Together with Darnell and returning crew members Dan, Travis, Dave, Justin and Twiggy, Welderup pulls out all the stops to bring ambitious ideas to life and create the most impressive and extraordinary rat rods in Sin City.
