Will Castro: It’s our third season, every day on Velocity, 9:00 pm prime time, we get to bring a lot of car culture and a lot of different personalities, a lot of different artists, and of course a lot of different flavor to it. There’s a lot of people that done that but you know we just have a great line up, great different styles that we bring, and they’re all obtainable cars that people can buy and can bring back to life.
Biz Markie: Real Flavor like chicken with some hot sauce!
