"Top Gear America" on BBC America is the second U.S. version of the "Top Gear" format. The first version aired on History Channel for six seasons.

With a nod to its UK roots, the reimagined US spin-off is hosted by racing enthusiast and veteran film and television actor William Fichtner, world champion drag racer Antron Brown, and premier British automotive journalist Tom "Wookie" Ford.

The new series reviews not just exclusive and state-of-the-art vehicles but also the cars of America's culture defining past. From the latest supercars to the ultimate in automotive engineering technology, the show puts the viewer in the passenger seat alongside the car-obsessed hosts as they race the most incredible vehicles on the scenic highways and historic tracks of the American west. Each week will feature a different celebrity who will compete for top honor on the leader board at the new "Top Gear" studio and track, Speed Vegas. Of course, the one and only Stig, "Top Gear's" mysterious test driver, will be leaving everyone in his petrol-hazed wake.

Award-winning film and TV actor William Fichtner ("Black Hawk Down," "The Dark Knight," "Armageddon," "Lone Ranger," "Prison Break") is a car nut and competitive racer. Antron Brown is a three-time NHRA Top Fuel Division world champion. Tom "Wookie" Ford was the Road Test Editor of CAR Magazine and previously appeared in BBCA's Mud, Sweat and Gears. He is currently the Associate Editor of Top Gear Magazine, and contributes to both TopGear.com and The Sunday Times.

"Top Gear America" is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for BBC America.
