MURRIETA, CA —  Power Automedia’s all-original show Horsepower Wars debuted in 2018, to rave reviews, millions of viewers, and a season of action-packed competitions and storylines. Horsepower Wars returns in 2019 even bigger.


Horsepower Wars shows feature a series of competitions between automotive shops, engine builders, racers, and tuners. Each show series consists of a shootout where viewers get to witness the entire build process and competition… culminating in one winner.


In 2019 – there will be three Horsepower Wars series:

    • $10K Drag Race Shootout “2”The wildly popular reality show returns – where four teams compete with $10,000 to build a drag car in only 10 days. After the builds, they have to square off in a heads-up drag race, where one winner will stand alone at the end on the biggest stage!


  • Pony Wars 2019 – The popular Mustang vs. Camaro show returns, with the addition of a new Dodge Challenger – adding a Mopar to the mix! This year’s show has new twists and turns, and millions will be watching to see if the Dodge or Mustang can wrestle the crown from the 6th Gen Chevy…


  • Junkyard Challenge – An all-new series debuts in 2019, where teams fiercely compete in multiple driving competitions using affordable trucks that they build using creativity and ingenuity. The teams will do battle in a variety of racing competitions, from offroad, dirt track, tug of war, and more!
