MotorTrend Mixes Motors and Merriment in the All-New “Holiday Hooptie Challenge”

MotorTrend’s talented personalities are celebrating the holiday season the only way they know how in the all-new special HOLIDAY HOOPTIE CHALLENGE streaming Friday, November 27 only on the MotorTrend App. One part white elephant gift exchange, one part driving competition, one part chaos and all parts merriment, HOLIDAY HOOPTIE CHALLENGE is like your typical holiday celebration but with burnouts and drag racing.

In HOLIDAY HOOPTIE CHALLENGE hosts David Freiburger and Brian Lohnes trade in the classic winter wonderland for a vehicular paradise where they invite Faye Hadley (ALL GIRLS GARAGE), Fred Williams (DIRT EVERY DAY), Steve Dulcich (ROADKILL GARAGE), Eric Malone (FASTEST CARS IN THE DIRTY SOUTH), Lucky Costa (HOT ROD GARAGE) and Tony Angelo (HOT ROD GARAGE) to the party.

Freiburger and Lohnes challenge their counterparts to drive, or shall we say thrash, some low-buck junk from MotorTrend shows in several holiday inspired racing competitions. Over the course of multiple events Hadley, Williams, Dulcich, Malone, Costa and Angelo will push themselves and their hoopties to the brink. The drivers will test their handling skills, speed and lack of self-preservation.

In the spirit of the season Freiburger and Lohnes have surprises to bestow upon the unsuspecting competitors who will be forced to drive different vehicles for each challenge. Once they get used to one vehicular gift they’ll have to “white elephant” swap their ride and will truly learn if it is better to give than to receive.
