Next, Art Morrison Enterprises Owner, Art Morrison, and Operations Manager, Craig Morrison, discuss the art of balancing shop work and outdoor play; also, catch some tips for a peaceful working relationship with your family members. Before he was a 3000-HP Tractor Pull racer, Koester Racing's Larry Koester met with an unfortunate accident while mowing his fields in a Ford farm tractor. Learn how his daughters unconditional love was the only thing that could dig him out of the darkest place in his life, after his tractor flipped over and pinned him, resulting in the amputation of both of his legs. Changing lanes, Garage Rehab Project Manager, Russell Holmes, shares how he got into the world of cars with a 1978 Chevrolet Camaro that he got for $75, and why he knows he can keep pace with Richard Rawlings. Then, we chat with NASCAR Rookie of the Year, Hailie Deegan and her father and X-Games Champion, Brian Deegan, about what it's like to live in a family of wild and fast racers. A family of firsts, Hailie Deegan has become the first female to ever win a NASCAR race, while her younger brother has completed the youngest ever backflip on a dirtbike. Shifting gears, Nissan Motor Corporation Truck & SUV/Brand Communications Specialist, Kevin Raftery, fills us in on the new Cummins diesel equiped Nissan Titan XD. Next, Collins Bros Jeep's Dennis and Kelsey Collins discuss their Jeep Wrangler JL Hellcrate, barn finds, and the effect social media has had on the automotive industry with latecomers Dave Hall of Restore a Muscle Car and Jeff Catlin of Barrett-Jackson. Closing the show, Rat Runners Garage Owner, Aaron Hagar, describes his YouTube video series, Design | Cut | Build, and how living around Lake Tahoe has really helped propel him as a car enthusiast.
