Horsepower Wars Junkyard Challenge: Episode Release Schedule

Turning a beater car into a creative, badass, off-road build is some of the most rewarding work in the world. Our new show Horsepower Wars Junkyard Challenge presented by K&N, was created to highlight four Southern California teams building the ultimate off-road rig in just seven days for a shot at winning $10,000 cash. We’re excited to announce that we will be releasing the first episode on December 5th, 2019!

 

The four final teams that were chosen to compete in the first-ever Junkyard Challenge are: NEXGEN, Rock Solid, Race Anything, and Damage Inc. These teams will face off to see who can build the best off-road machine on a limited budget. Each team was given $2,500 to buy a vehicle they will be building up. Team Damage Inc. went with a 1989 Ford F-250, Team Rock Solid Offroad chose a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500, Team RaceAnything has a 2004 GMC 2500HD, and last but not least Team NEXGEN is building a 1993 Ford F-150.

Teams huddled around a stack of Toyo Tires.

From there, teams will have $2,500 in Summit Racing credit to budget and purchase any aftermarket parts they desire, and an additional $1,000 will be provided for the teams to buy used parts. Toyo Tires will be providing tires while K&N will be providing all sorts of products, such as air filters and oil filters. Completed trucks will have to participate in four challenges: Barrel Race, Short Course Race, Tug O’War, and the Jump Contest.
