  • Hi, my fellow citizens of this great country of ours, the United Corporations of America. Why did those Pilgrims land on Plymouth Rock? Because they needed a place to stage the greatest filthy contest known to man!
  • Now, this is all about freedom. The freedom to sit on your big fat butt all day and watch the singly greatest sporting event known to man. Competition. That's what's made this country so great. Welcome to the Death Race!


  • That's right, race fans! We are moments away from the starting gun, and anticipation here has reached a medically dangerous level. The fifth installment of the great American tradition. Does it get any better than this?
  • Our first competitor is approaching the starting line. And judging by the smell of burned rubber and brimstone, it can only be Tammy the Terrorist! A three-time veteran of the race, and leader of her own extremely convoluted religion, is this the year Tammy turns prophecy into victory?
