Murrieta, CA Power Automedia’s Horsepower Wars has announced its official episode release schedule for the third season of the $10K Drag Shootout presented by Lucas Oil as well as an exciting partnership with Lucas Oil’s cable and satellite television channel, MAVTV Motorsports Network.

$10K Drag Shootout consists of four teams competing against each other to see who can build the fastest drag racing car over a period of 10 days, with a budget of only $10,000 — divided into $3,000 cash and a $7,000 Summit Racing Equipment gift card. Once the builds have been completed, the teams head down to the track for heads-up racing where the team who proves they’re the quickest, takes home $10,000 and their finished car. This season the Lucas Oil $10K Drag Shootout will be taking inspiration from No Prep drag racing events that have become increasingly popular over the years, which mimic street racing – using no traction compound to make the track sticky as with a traditional track event. 

For the first time, Horsepower Wars will be partnering with MAVTV to broadcast $10K Drag Shootout 3 on cable television. MAVTV Motorsports Network is owned and operated by Lucas Oil Products and is the only cable television network in the U.S. dedicated solely to motorsports. “We live for custom car builds and drag racing, it’s in our DNA,” said John Duff, Head of Content at MAVTV. “So when we were presented with the opportunity to partner with Horsepower Wars and broadcast Season 3 of their highly popular drag racing show with a no-prep twist, we knew it would be a perfect fit and blend nicely into our already impressive lineup of automotive content.” MAVTV will be airing episodes of $10K Drag Shootout every Sunday with the first episode premiering on November 1, 2020.

Fans of the show who do not have access to MAVTV will be able to watch the upcoming season on the same platforms as years past on Horsepowerwars.com in addition to the Horsepower Wars Facebook and YouTube every Tuesday starting on November 3.

Power Automedia is excited to announce Dennis Pittsenbarger as a leading host of its new automotive show Horsepower Wars. Pittsenbarger will be joining host Brian Petty as a pair of rabble-rousers on the upcoming Horsepower Wars $10k Drag Racing Shootout and the True Street Dyno Challenge. In addition to being one of the main faces of the show, Dennis will also be working behind-the-scenes to help develop storylines, have an active presence on social media, and much more.

Pittsenbarger has a great deal of experience working as an on-screen talent for leading TV shows and trade shows, with big names in the industry such as SEMA, Discovery, and Velocity. When paired with his lifetime of automotive enthusiasm, Pittsenbarger makes for a perfect fit for the Horsepower Wars team.

“I could not be more excited to be a part of something as I am to be a part of Horsepower Wars,” said Pittsenbarger. “It’s a chance to see real people with real cars put their skills and rides to the test– just pure, real competition. Without a doubt, this will set the internet on fire and I am proud and privileged to be the guy in the center ring with the top hat helping bring the viewer along for one hell of a ride.”

“Dennis is quite the personality,” said James Lawrence, Power Automedia’s CEO. “His energy, excitement and passion for hot rodding are pretty much unmatched. He’s unbridled, full throttle, over the top – and he’s the perfect guy to get in the middle of this hot mess and stoke the fires. We know Horsepower Wars is going to light the candles of drama with Dennis.”

The first season of Horsepower Wars launches March-April 2018. For more information visit horsepowerwars.com.
