The car he’s driving – a Year One built, 600-horsepower 1969 DynaCorn Camaro – is reminiscent of Trans Am racing’s glory days. It’s an overflow of performance, as Schneider tries to harness the car’s LS-7 crate engine, custom competition camshaft, GMPP dry-sump oiling system, fabricated headers, Tremac five-speed transmission and its Quadralink, four-link race suspension. It’s a car built for competitive road racing.

Saw the commercial for this last night. Looks like it could be an entertaining show. Will definitely check in for the episode on the 22nd.
Looks like another stupid one season speed original.
Congrat's Jeremy...I am a Redneck so i will be watching.
I just put a topic if this in the lounge, and got linked to here.  That's awesome Jeremy.
Look forward to watching it Feb 22.
I have to check this out on my local cable.
Some new info posted up by Hot Rod Mag regarding the Rednecks car info/specs finally !!!

Year One Bandit - 1978 Pontiac Trans AM

We got to ride shotgun in the ’78 Pontiac that Year One built as the  pilot car for their Bandit Trans Am series. It’s worn several different  noses, but now it’s got the ’77 front clip and screaming chicken that’s  pure disco-era awesome. Underneath it’s a different story, as it uses an  early version of Detroit Speed’s second-gen F-body front subframe and a  first-gen F-body Quadralink rear suspension to bring the geometry into  the 21st century. With the 500ci, all-aluminum, 650hp Pontiac engine  dropped almost 2 inches and moved rearward 3 inches, the 3,300-pound car  has a perfect 50/50 weight distribution.






Joel Vandiver // Cornelia, Georgia
'08/’09 Dodge Challenger


                                                                                      Cobbled together on a shoestring budget from a rolled SRT8  Challenger, a police Charger, and a factory-reject Challenger body, the  former 6.1L/auto car now runs a 426 and a six-speed. The odd color is  self-etching primer with clearcoat.

Lonny Childress // Bourbon, Missouri
'68 Ford Mustang

                                                                                      The R&D car for Gateway Performance SuspensionPosted Image  uses Gateway’s three-link, coilovers, and Watt’s link in the rear with  its strut suspension in the front. It’s got a 560hp Roush 368ci Windsor,  a Keisler five-speed, and Baer brakes

Brad Granger // Alton, Illinois
'67 Chevy Camaro

                                                                                      Brad has owned this car since 1978. Originally an automatic, he  swapped in a four-speed soon after he bought it, and now it has a Tremec  six-speed, Boze wheels, Chris Alston’s chassis goodies, and an LS3 with  a Magnuson 122 supercharger

Eddie Key, aka “Resaca Rattlesnake” // Resaca, Georgia
'12 Ford Mustang Boss 302

                                                                                      Eddie’s a police detective in Gordon County, Georgia. His Boss 302  is showroom stock except for brake fluid and pads, which are Hawk HP  Plus. It’s only got 3,000 miles on the odometer because it’s mainly a  track car. Factoid: the 903 on the door is Eddie’s badge number.

Brian Finch // Hermitage, Tennessee
'69 and '71 Chevy Camaros

                                                                                      Brian has two Camaros in the Redneck stable, both LS powered and  both with a nearly perfect front/rear weight distribution. The ’71 was  yellow with a black hood when it was featured in HOT ROD. Now it’s  silver. It’s got Detroit Speed suspension and is just a bit faster than  the ’69 thanks to the second-gen’s lower stance.

Right, usually that stuff goes straight to the scrap yard and is taken in as scrap sales revenue by the OEM.  I don't know HOW someone would have gotten that.
Guess he had connections
New promo, shows the GT-R for a split second at the end lol.


Honestly, a gtr should destroy in this.. Right?
Looks like they cut across the course to try and catch you lol

Technically yes, a GT-R having AWD should do very good, but I didn't have AWD, and it was my very first time EVER driving the car RWD. And you also need to account for the fact the Rednecks had Pro Drivers like Kenny Wallace and they weren't exactly driving some rusted POS. 650 hp.... 3,300 lbs with a Pro Driver is gonna be hard to beat. I can't say how I did so you'll just have to tune in to find out.

Wow they made you run rwd only?!  I heard you just hold the vdc switch down to the off position for ten seconds and then it blinks and you are in rwd only..is this true? I've never tried. If so, do all model years have this capability?

^^^ They didn't make me, something went wrong with my AWD less then 24 hours before the event so I ran it in RWD.

Oh man that must have been really stressful!

This should be good
when can we see the episode
I hadn't pictured Kenny Wallace as a stereo typical "redneck".  He may spend most of his time in what is considered a "mobile home", but that's as far as I see this go.

Agreed, it's was just part of the show....Redneck vs. Punks lol. I grew up in BFE Hereford, Maryland which is named after a bread of cow.....doesn't get much more redneck then that place I can promise you that.

There's a special preview that airs on the 22nd after the NASCAR Truck Series, and show starts on the 25th. I believe I'm in episode 1 or 2....not sure at this point.

Looks good! Having grown up in the south and always being a mustang guy before the GT-R stole my heart, I can appreciate both sides :).
i dont have speed channel so i guess i have to wait for someone to upload it to you tube.
