Dustin Stout, from Pass Christian, Miss., took his first ride in a truck when he was three years old. Ever since, he’s been obsessed with having a life on the road. Just a few months shy of turning 21, Stout’s counting down the days until he can begin trucking full time. Recently, he bought an old International cabover engine model truck. He’s always wanted a cabover, and he’s been working hard to fix it up because most trucking companies won’t hire a truck driver with a truck older than five years. So, the gang pitches in to help their youngest driver yet and make his old cabover into the meanest dragster on the road. Premieres Friday, September 7 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
