Daredevil Chris Darnell is a perfectionist who likes things done his way. After all, when you race jet trucks for a living, your life is always on the line.
When it’s show time, Chris’s challenge is to tame a 36,000 horsepower rocket that wants to go 800 MPH, but racing any quicker than their world record speed of 376 MPH will cause the frame and stock tires to disintegrate! Every flame-engulfed run is nothing short of jaw-dropping as it draws awe-inspired crowds and sells out weekend shows. But as much a spectacle as the act is, it’s the time between shows where the real drama happens.
Jet Truck takes you with the Darnell family in their travels as they thrill hundreds of thousands while trying not to kill each other. It’s American Chopper meets Big Brother infused with the spectacle of a NASCAR crash.
