The world of the demolition derby can be summed up by one simple axiom — "smash or be smashed." Velocity offers a front-row seat to the explosive egos, intense competition and automotive carnage that make these destructive events impossible to turn away from. The series is set in the world of legalized road rage, where the accidents aren't accidents, and the characters are as combustible as the collisions. The show follows the demolition derby circuit in rural Utah, where four-wheeled gladiators including TJ, the Sweat Brothers, and Gumby the Stormin' Mormon compete for bragging rights, family honor, and enough prize money to repair their cars for the next event.
The series explores the personal lives of eight drivers who step behind the wheel every week in hopes of crushing the competition and bringing home a win. At each derby, competitors advance through various heats for a chance to capture the coveted "Mad Dog: Most Aggressive Driver" title. Along the way, they work against the clock to source parts, tune-up transmissions, and make the repairs necessary to withstand the crescendo of crashes. Meanwhile, racers juggle nagging physical pain, strained family relationships, and financial stresses as they push ahead in their quest to become derby champion.
"Kings of Crash" is produced for Velocity by Fischer Productions. For Fischer, Chris Fischer is executive producer, and Chris Moore is supervising producer, and Alex Campbell is the series' showrunner. For Velocity, David Lee is Director of Production and Bob Scanlon is SVP of Velocity.
