Smashtown USA (fka The Derby)

Do you like car crashes? How 'bout watching your next-door neighbor compete on TV? Do you listen to The Road Hammers? Then CMT definitely has a new show for you. "Smashtown USA."

Jason McCoy of The Road Hammers hosts "Smashtown USA." Five ordinary people build cars for a demolition derby and then compete to win a new truck. CMT will likely air the pilot in Spring 2007, according to Jeff Spriet of Chokolat, Inc. Here's a sneak peak of the action from the pilot shoot, thanks to Jennifer is in Kansas.


Earlier this year Chokolat created "The Derby." Then Chokolat renamed the show "Smashtown USA" and registered the domain on October 2, 2006. Almost four weeks later (October 28, 2006), Chokolat filmed the pilot ep in Milford, OH. Finally, CMT filed documents on November 15, 2006 with the US Patent & Trademark Office to protect the phrase "CMT Smashtown USA."
