50 CONTESTANTS TAKE ON THE TOUGHEST TRUCK OBSTACLE COURSE EVER BUILT IN HISTORY(R)'S NEW NONFICTION COMPETITION SERIES "TRUCK NIGHT IN AMERICA" PREMIERING ON THURSDAY, MARCH 8 AT 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY - February 7, 2018 - It's truck versus terrain, as 50 truck owners from across the United States compete in grueling challenges that test their ingenuity and driving ability in HISTORY's new ten episode nonfiction competition series, "Truck Night in America" premiering on Thursday, March 8 at 10PM ET/PT. With the assistance of four experts, owners will compete for the chance to drive the toughest, most arduous truck obstacle course ever built, and drive away with $10,000 prize.

"Trucks have a true place in American history, both past and present, and as the most widely sold vehicle with 133 million currently on U.S. roads there is an appetite for this genre of programing," said Eli Lehrer, Executive Vice President of Programming, HISTORY. "Since 1925 when the first American factory-produced truck rolled off the line, owners have been devising ingenious ways to make them faster, stronger and better and this can be seen with the tough competitors in our new series."

Each episode of this self-contained competition series features five drivers in their personal customized trucks and jeeps going head to head in three challenges, each testing a different vehicle attribute: speed, strength and handling. Between each challenge competitors demonstrate their craftsmanship by re-engineering their trucks for the next round. The last two finalists standing then take on a three-mile, truck killing obstacle course known as "The Green Hell," which challenges trucks and drivers to fly off jumps, climb a mountain of crushed cars, and tear through a snake-infested swamp. Five trucks will enter to compete, but only one can win and take home the prize money and the title of "Truck Night Champion."

Helping the competitors are four expert coaches: desert racing champion and track builder, "Pistol" Pete Sohren; extreme sports pioneer and dirt track racer, Glen Plake; truck builder and master fabricator, Abe Wine and rock crawling champion and master fabricator, Rob "Bender" Park. These four experts offer tough love and their professional perspective on each contender's strategy and performance.

"Truck Night In America" is produced for HISTORY by 51 Minds. Christian Sarabia and James Patrick Costello II are executive producers for 51 Minds. Bert Klasey, Mike Stiller, Dolores Gavin and Mary Donahue are the executive producers for HISTORY.

A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for "Truck Night In America."
