"Fast Track To Fame" 4/22

This week at the Texas Motor Speedway (where it was raining at the time this episode was taped), filling in for Charissa Thompson as Michael Waltrip's co-host was Krista Voda. As for the guest judge, it was another one of the Miss Sprint Cups, Paige Duke.

The reason why this episode did NOT air in its Monday at 8 PM EST timeslot was because of Speed re-running the NASCAR Sprint Cup Samsung 500 that first aired that day on FOX, which had been postponed due to the rain.
