"Wrecked" On National Geographic Channel

Tonight, the National Geographic Channel (Nat Geo) will be airing episodes of the hit series "Wrecked: Life in the Crash Lane", previously only exclusively shown on the SPEED network.

There will be two, two hour episodes back to back starting at 8PM EST, and re-airing at 11PM EST. Also they will be reairing tommorow at 10AM EST.

This is my favorite show of all time. It's about a family owned towing and recovery business in the Chicago, IL area. They have a fleet of over 70 trucks, and 100 staff. The cameras follow them to some very interesting incidents, and it's fascinating to watch how they handle them.

They specialize in heavy truck recovery, and it's amazing the situations these trucks get into, and O'Hare has to get them out of. They have an awesome fleet including two heavy duty rotators, flatbeds, and everything inbetween. They are very safety oriented. They are very busy, and very fun to watch. There's more to the towing industry then meets the eye, and watching these pro's will prove that.The show's been picked up for a second season starting in May on SPEED.

A diecast version of an O'Hare flatbed is on it's way.
