Brent "Mad Dog" Yates from "Backyard Oil" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Drillin' for oil is in the Yates family blood. With four generations of men before him making money in the oil business, little "Mad Dog" went to work for his dad when he was just a "pup" at 14 years old. Then one day he decided to proudly become a fifth generation Yates family driller.

Having drilled thousands of oil wells in his day, Brent "Mad Dog" Yates is as rough and tumble as they come, but put Jimmy Reliford and Mad Dog in the same room and they can tell jokes 'til the roosters start a-crowin'. Mad Dog loves collectin' arrow heads and is one of Jimmy's go-to guys when it comes to roughneckin'.
