NBC Sports Group announced today the debut of SHOTGUN, a high-octane automotive quiz show, from the creators of The Amazing Race, which tests contestants' skills at answering questions while riding in the passenger seat of a professional race car.
Shotgun is produced by Profiles TV's Bertram Van Munster and Elise Doganieri, creators of The Amazing Race.
Hosted by NASCAR on NBC's Rutledge Wood, the show invites six contestants to buckle in for THE RIDE of their lives and ride "shotgun" as professional drivers put the pedal to the medal around four different courses at Irwindale Speedway, in Irwindale, Calif. As the cars race around the track and drift between obstacles, each contestant is asked trivia questions covering a range of topics from pop culture to geography. Contestants who answer the most questions correctly in each round will move on to the next race course. Each new course will feature unique challenges and a different race vehicle. The last contestant standing after all four rounds wins $25,000.
In a first-of-its-kind launch for NBC Sports Group, the eight-episode series will debut digitally - on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app - followed a few weeks later by its television premiere on NBCSN.
