NEW SEASON OF "ULTIMATE RIDES" SUPERCHARGES DRIVE BLOCK ON FYI BEGINNING AUGUST 12th 10PM
Danny Koker Returns To Host New Episodes of Fan-Favorite Car Shows,
'Ultimate Rides' and 'Counting Cars: Under the Hood'
New York, NY - July 29, 2021 -FYI(R)'s DRIVE Block, a premiere destination for auto enthusiast programming, is revving up with all new episodes of fan-favorite series, "Ultimate Rides." Hosted by Count's Kustoms own, Danny Koker, Season 2 of FYI's 20-episode magazine-style series features all kinds of outrageous vehicles - from hot rods and muscle cars to monster trucks and big rigs - and the people who create, customize and care for them. "Ultimate Rides" premieres August 12th at 10PM with two back-to-back episodes each week.
Building on its premiere season's success, "Ultimate Rides" Season 2 will highlight even more fantastic and unique vehicles from around the globe and the passionate home garage innovators who've brought their visions to life with their own hands. Featured vehicles include: Elvis Presley's lost pink and white 1967 Cadillac; the 1 millionth Corvette ever made, which was lost to a sinkhole and recovered and restored; a 1940s Fargo converted into a drivable piece of art; and a one-of-a-kind propeller-powered 1932 Helicron.
"Car enthusiasts have come to know the DRIVE block as a premiere destination for content driven by passion for autos," said Christian Murphy, Head of Enthusiast Brands, A+E Networks. "We are thrilled to be bringing many more incredible vehicles, dedicated builders, and triumphs of automotive ingenuity to FYI through this exciting partnership with Barcroft Studios and Beyond rights. Danny Koker is the pièce de résistance that brings it all together to make this series a can't miss for gearheads and novices alike."
Coming soon, audiences can catch even more of the cars they love in an upcoming new series "Counting Cars: Under the Hood" which will join the DRIVE block later this year (schedule details to be shared at a later date). "Counting Cars: Under the Hood" will dive deeper into the greatest episodes from the long-running The HISTORY Channel series, "Counting Cars." With brand new commentary from Koker on the cars and bikes that made the series a massive hit, "Counting Cars" fans won't want to miss this exiting new spin on an auto-enthusiast favorite.
