      Great job, keep it up!
      Thanks man! Please tell your significant other that I really appreciate them watching...I think you'll like the vibe for these first 6 then..I think they'll all have a "journey/special" sort of a vibe.

      Well, that's possible, but I don't think it is...since I don't know who it is I've tried to check all the racing schedules and serif I can tell who it is by that...didn't help.

      Haha. I can tell you I truly don't know who it is, but I know it's not Tanner since its physically impossible for him to be two places at once.

      Rut, do they put you in Spanx and you're the Stig?

      Patrick Dempsey

      He is decent for a Celeb-turn-racecar-driver, but comparing him with Boris Said?

      That would be cool if the US Stig was Boris Said!! Great job with the show Rut! I laughed so hard at one episode that my wife started watching and she is hooked now too! Can't ask for more than that!

      Lol. Eric Bana is awesome enough to be the Stig, not sure about his driving ability though.

      Sour patch kids are ftw. Love those things. Bonus points for you Rutledge! Also, my mother owns a 2005 Aztek and while it's super ugly she loves how useful it is. It was cool seeing you deal with your Aztek on the show. We'll be looking for a replacement soon and it's going to be hard to replace it's usefulness.

      Can't wait for the new season! I know this show gets a bit of flak, but I like it a little more than the UK version. It definitely took a few episodes for them to get into the swing of things though. There wasn't a single episode in the 2nd season that I didn't bust up laughing while watching. My favorite was the monster truck Miata that lost a wheel. I saw that wheel start rolling away, and lost it.

      I'd like to get into that audience some day. How does one go about doing that?

      Keep up the good work, guys. I'll happily tune-in all season long.

      Thanks Pirate! I'm so glad to hear it....

      This first part of the season there isn't an audience...hopefully that will come back for the 2nd part. When we do it though, it's free to sign up and a lot of fun. It's actually part of the reason I'm on here, because Vad made me promise to join, plus that's how I met Brandon C. too. Good times!

      I don't see why there is so much hate about this program. (According to the comments on the US episodes on Top Gear UK's YouTube channel) I think it is just as good as Top Gear UK and hope it lasts as long. I also used to live in Fayetteville, GA, which I think is near Rut. He's right there are a ton of golf cart trails.

      Yeah man! Not far from me at all! Thanks for watching!

      What's up Crob...this is the part where I reply so you feel like your unique look on the world has been recognized, and thus makes you feel like the elitist you so desire to be, when all the rest of the world hears is a little kid saying "I'm cool because I'm different and special"

      Thank you for your time. To recycle a British term in order to make others feel like America came up with it all along, I'd classify you as a wanker.

      Tally ho!

      Looking forward to more awesome footage, and reading Rut's comments on vortex with his voice in my head.
