Default be on a TV show...yay or nay?

So I have been asked if I am interested in the doing an episode of a new TV show. I am going back and forth about if I want to do it or not. The reasons for my hesitation…The show is “Are you Faster than a Redneck”…and I’d be the Redneck.


Talking to some friends that have already done some filming, you not only drive, but you do some stupid stunts in the old “hey y’all, watch this” tradition.

So should I do it or not?

Never be ashamed of who you are. I'm sure your Mom and Daduncle would agree.

double this

also, "are you faster than a redneck" doesn't really make any sense. i mean, in are you smarter than a fifth grader, fifth graders aren't very smart. But rednecks do more racing than just about any other demographic. This seems like "are you smarter than a doctor"

it's not drag racing, it's road racing at CMP in Kershaw SC.

My car has proven to be quick in the old configuration, the new one should make me between 3 to 4 seconds faster a lap.
