Over the course of the season, here's what you'll experience:
What does it take to keep a high octane drag car running at top speed over the course of a grueling season?  Worse yet, in a sport that relies on cat-quick reflexes, how does an aging 60 year old engine-building drag racing master compete against opponents half his age?    "Shifters USA" powers the viewer into the drag race pits as veteran driver Kurt Huntington and his crew travel the country to pit his beloved '68 Camaro against the USA's best 4-speed drag racers for a head to head $2K cash prize!

After its American Graffiti roots in the '50s and '60s, drag racing took a sharp turn towards computerization and automatic transmissions and away from the unique skills of the clutch-pumping, crowd-pleasing showboat drivers. Today, a dedicated army of power-shifting enthusiasts has rejected computerized timing boxes. Instead, they're bolting modern, high-tech versions of stick shift components into their classic cars from drag racing's golden years, and revitalizing a fast-draw, wheel-standing spectator sport.

8,000+RPM launches. Front wheels in the air.  Bang into 2nd gear and the wheels lift off again. Accelerators jammed to the firewall...it's a thundering sprint to the finish line!

Shifters USA follows Kurt, manager Gene Phillips and the Shifters tech crew ("Big Dale", "ChickenLeg" and "The Tuner") as they build and maintain 800 horsepower race cars over the course of a grueling season stretching from the Deep South to the upper Midwest. Not content just to compete in these race events, the Shifters USA squad challenges the most competitive racer of the day to a head to head, one shot "Clash For Cash!" match race. If Kurt wins the shootout, he takes home $2,000 in cold, hard cash. If he loses, he's forced to hand over the 2 grand to his gloating opponent. There will be some spirited trash talking!

Multiple in-car cameras and a crew of HD specialists will bring viewers high definition behind-the-scenes insight into all the engineering labor, time and money that goes into producing a feared racing competitor. Will Kurt and his '68 Camaro SS hold up for the entire season...or will he leave a trail of broken parts and shattered dreams on the strip?
