Truck Night in America wiki, is a History Channel program that debuted in 2018. In the show, contestants compete through a series of elimination events, and the final two remaining members race independently against each other on a three-mile course known as "The Green Hell." Whoever completes the course fastest, or, in the event that neither finishes, gets the farthest wins a $10,000 prize. After the first elimination round, when one loser reduces the group to four contestants, a selection process teams an expert coach to each driver. The coaches had been desert racing champion and truck builder "Pistol" Pete Sohren, extreme sports pioneer and dirt track racer Glen Plake, truck builder and master fabricator Abe Wine, and rock crawling champion and master fabricator Rob "Bender" Park, but "Pistol" Pete Sohren was killed in January 2019 in a UTV accident in Mexico, leaving a vacancy in the show. His replacement has not been announced.Some events change between episodes, while others remain the same. Drivers get a one-hour opportunity to make repairs or modifications to their trucks twice during the competition.
