Jack Roush Brings Racing to Reality TV(Filed under: Extracurricular)
Championship racing mogul Jack Roush is joining the reality TV world. Racing for the Ride will appear this fall on the Discovery Channel and chronicles the selection process of young, rookie drivers who might get the chance to join Roush Racing. It's actually a format Roush has done since 1989, but this is the first time it's been filmed for reality TV.
In 1999 the winner of Roush's contest was Kurt Busch, who went on to with the Nextel Cup Championship in 2004. Roush drivers Mark Martin, Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards served as judges to whittle down the field to six and then four. Two finalists will race each under the lights at Darlington Raceway.
