A show about demo derby drivers,being challenged weekly to participate in various forms of automotive mayhem.You are given a budget to buy a vehicle,modify it,race it,and if you win there is a payoff.The show is based in Bithlow Florida.Its the stereotypical southern good ole boys and gals racing on the weekend program.Spike TV is trying hard to get us to get to know and like the racers....maybe to even get a favorite.Well,I cant really say that any are all that likable.Maybe Demo Dave the family man....but the rest...well...they are unique. There's Marilyn the Motor Mamma....she runs a towing company and seems to be a real professional both on the track and off,but she isn't my cup of tea. There's her daughter Misty the Bikini Racer (she wears a bikini under her racing suit).She's young,foulmouthed,not respectful of her mother,and knows she has a rather ample chest (I think her boyfriend knows it too).She shows some promise as a decent racer to follow her mother,but her temper may get the better of her on the track. Chuck the go-to man who sets up the race track,handles the drivers,and generally has a bad attitude. Don the track operator.He's the old pro who makes the challenges.Gotta love this guy.He's seen and done it all. Raybo.The guy's rather different.Wild,and seemingly always out-of-it,he always makes an impact.For good or bad. Ben,the bus driver.Seems to be a decent guy.His father is a wise cracker. Nick. Who? Jeff.Fordzilla the crowd thriller.Wild,wild looking,and a fearless stunt driver.His poor old Ford pickup bears the brunt of his indiscretions. He teamed with Misty to cheat for a blindfold race win. The rest of them are rather forgettable. The show may not have a very bright future. 15 minutes of fame? Maybe. NEWS FLASH****** I read that there is supposed to be a season 2 of Carpocalypse...split equally between Bithlow Florida and NY,they plan on pitting the Southerners VS New-comer Northerners.This probably would have been filmed already this past summer...so its now up to SPIKE TV to schedule its airing.I wonder who's going to return and who isn't? My guess is Raybo will be gone,as will the drunk guy,but Fordzilla and Misty (the whiney bikini racer)probably will once again "grace" our screens with their off the wall high octane personalities. Mark my word though,Season 2 should be all she wrote.If it even airs in the first place. Spike TV,whatever happened to the original Friday night "Motor Madness"? I mean before Dusty Rhodes,and Butterscotch Jackson....? RIP Steve Evans.....you were the only sanity on that show.
