Tonight is the season finale for everybody’s favorite Texas flippers, Gas Monkey Garage, on Discovery Channel’s Fast N’ Loud!
Like all of you, I hate to see Richard, Aaron and the guys take off for the rest of the summer, but at least tonight we will be able to look back over the season and relive the good times, the bad times and all those times in between that had Richard running his hands through his hair until we all thought it would all fall out! Oh, and we might even find out what happened with that crashed-up Mustang—at least, that is what the Fast N’ Loud Facebook page is teasing!
Fans should also know about the latest GMG charity event (those guys really do give back—check them out sometime): A raffle to benefit Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch. According to the GMG Blog:
I can’t count the number of times we’ve heard our fans say “I wish I could afford a Gas Monkey ride!” We heard you loud and clear, which is why we’re raffling off a GMG ride for $5/ticket and giving a portion of the proceeds to charity. Originally we wanted to donate to the Alzheimer’s Association because my dad was recently diagnosed, but the timing didn’t work out. We hope to work with them in the very near future, but for this raffle the charity receiving some GMG love is Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch. A portion of the money we raise will go directly to the Ranch’s programs, projects and care of exotic animals like wallabies, lemurs, bobcats and of course, MONKEYS. It’s safe to say that if Keagles existed, you’d see them at Sharkarosa.

So, if you are interested in purchasing a $5 raffle ticket for a chance to win the ’76 Caprice GMG built and raced in the Bullrun and Gumball 3000, you’d best get on the stick, as three tickets are being drawn TONIGHT after the Fast N’ Loud season finale, which airs at 9/8c. Yes, three tickets! One winner will win the Caprice; two additional winners will win GMG merch prize packs (I think I’d rather have the GMG stuff!). And, remember: Proceeds from this raffle do benefit Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch. Check out the GMG Facebook page, Twitter and blog to see if yours is the winning ticket!
Yes, I know: It doesn’t seem like the season of Fast N’ Loud has started and now it is over! But, hey, there is a Fast N’ Loud marathon all day today on Discovery Channel! So, enjoy the day, have fun with the guys tonight, and then mark your calendars: They will be back Sept. 2.
Fast N’ Loud airs on Discovery Channel on Monday nights at 9/8c.
