Rutledge Wood from Top Gear!

Feature Interview with Top Gear’s Rutledge Wood!

In this episode of the show Larry and I had the chance to interview TV superstar, Rutledge Wood. We’ve both been huge fans of Rut during his run on the U.S. version of Top Gear, and since they featured a recent interview with a comparison of three Pro-Touring cars that were all owned by friends of ours, we reached out for an interview. It turns out…..Rut is totally normal, and was happy to come on!

During the interview we asked everything – and I mean everything – about what it’s like to be on Top Gear, what they thoughts of the Pro-Touring cars, whether Tanner really is as a great a driver as he’s portrayed (he is), whether Adam really is as crazy as he’s portrayed (he is), and whether he believes he truly has a dream job (he does).

He was as funny with us as he is on Top Gear, as well as on his “day job” of hosting the NASCAR pre-races shows on Fox SPorts 1. He truly loves cars, buys half of the vehicles he drives on Top Gear and takes them home, and just put an LS3 into a 1950’s panel van. We’ll plan to catch up with Rut in person at SEMA!

Thanks for the interview, Rut!
