MOTORTREND GREENLIGHTS SEASON SIX OF "GARAGE SQUAD" AS CRISTY LEE JOINS AS COHOST

-- GARAGE SQUAD Slated to Return for an All-New Season This Summer--

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Today, MotorTrend announced the greenlight of season six of the hit series GARAGE SQUAD for the MotorTrend App and MotorTrend TV, and announced the addition of longtime automotive enthusiast, tv host and reporter Cristy Lee to GARAGE SQUAD. Lee joins as cohost alongside National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) driver Bruno Massel and lead mechanic Joe Zolper as former cohost Heather Storm exits the series. GARAGE SQUAD begins production in April and is produced for MotorTrend by Super Genius.

"First, thank you to Heather Storm for her tireless contributions to GARAGE SQUAD across four seasons. We certainly wish her well in all future endeavors," said David Lee, vice president of production and development, MotorTrend TV. "GARAGE SQUAD is a stalwart of the MotorTrend lineup on both linear TV and on the MotorTrend App. Entering season six is exciting especially with the addition of Cristy. Her years of in-depth, 'how-to' automotive experience coupled with expertise as an interviewer/commentator in the automotive genre only stands to enhance the GARAGE SQUAD format."

For years Cristy Lee has combined her passion and knowledge for the automotive industry, motorsports and motorcycles with her love of broadcasting. She has worked as a cohost of MotorTrend's ALL GIRLS GARAGE for eight seasons, and as cohost of MotorTrend's popular BARRETT-JACKSON LIVE broadcasts since 2015. Lee's career accomplishments extend to pit reporting for indoor motocross, motorcycle road racing, off-road trucks, monster trucks, and flat track, as well as the 2015 and 2016 X Games for ESPN in Austin, Texas. Born and raised in Daytona Beach, Fla., Cristy Lee grew up in her dad's mechanic shop near the "World Center of Racing' in Daytona. Cars, motorcycles and racing have been a big part of her life for many years. When she's not in front of the camera, Cristy is motorcycling around the country or turning laps at the race track with more than sixteen years' experience on two-wheels and often dabbles in performance driving - road-racing, autocross and drag racing.

Across America, countless car aficionados have bought a less than perfect version of their dream car hoping their amateur mechanical chops would return that lackluster ride to glory. Too often, dreams of automotive grandeur are wrecked by a lack of money, time, and knowhow, leaving garages cluttered with cars, car parts, and tools gathering dust. Fortunately, many of these well-meaning automotive enthusiasts are setting pride aside and opening their garage doors to the GARAGE SQUAD who are always up for the challenge of rebuilding an engine, rejuvenating bodywork, reconstructing upholstery or doing whatever it takes to bring joyful tears to even the most hardened car owners.

Season six of GARAGE SQUAD is scheduled to premiere on MotorTrend TV and the MotorTrend App in summer 2019.

GARAGE SQUAD is produced for MotorTrend by Super Genius. For Super Genius, Ted Lega is executive producer. For MotorTrend, Peter Neal is executive producer and David Lee is vice president of production and development. Alex Wellen is global president and general manager of MotorTrend Group.
