Battle of the Beaters

A thousand bucks doesn't buy much of a car—or does it? Battle of the Beaters features two teams of experts, each given $1000 and 72 hours to purchase a crap car and turn it into a contender.

The events range from rally racing to demolition derbies to tests of pure, pointless endurance. Viewers are a key part of the competition: Not only will they provide commentary on the cars, the teams, and the competitions, they also will ultimately decide which humiliation the losing team must endure.
