FASTEST CARS IN THE DIRTY SOUTH follows Eric Malone and his expert team as they compete in races where daredevil drivers top 140 miles per hour on closed tracks. Malone's Team 256 is a fast, impressive group of drivers, fabricators and mechanics who've won so much they've had to change the grudge racing game to attract worthy opponents. Routinely, Team 256 takes the slowest car from an opposing team, upgrades it with limited time and a limited budget, and then races the opposing team in their transformed vehicle. Viewers of the series see every step of the team's grudge racing process - from the on track high-stakes betting and negotiations to car customizations and the intensity and speed of race day.
