Sixth episode of world's first social-reality show airs Saturday, February 25, at 3 p.m. ET on ABC
BRUSSELS, February 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In the NASCAR world, it doesn't get any more Big Time than learning from and competing against the likes of Richard Childress, Kevin Harvick, Austin Dillon, Ron Hornaday and Andy Hillenburg. In the sixth episode of Bud United presents: The Big Time, airing Saturday, February 25, on ABC, three aspiring racecar drivers will have the chance to do exactly that.
The contestants competing in next Saturday's episode for a chance to meet NASCAR legend Richard Childress and race against Kevin Harvick and other professional drivers were cast via social media channels and include:
"My big dream is to make it to the top, to be one of the only females in the United States to build her own racecar and make history by winning," says Hagar, who was one of less than a dozen women who submitted a casting application for The Big Time racing episode.
"I've never been chased around with cameras like this in my life, so it's kind of cool to be the center of attention," adds Purcell. "Without this contest, I never would've had a chance to do any of this and meet my heroes."
In addition to what they will see in the show, fans may view exclusive behind-the-scenes clips of the contestants and hear real-world racing tips from NASCAR legends on The Big Time's official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/budunited) and YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/bigtime).
The seventh and final episode of Bud United presents: The Big Time will air Saturday, March 3, at 3 p.m. ET on ABC, featuring baseball greats Tom House and Frank Viola as three contestants – including one who beat Stage IV cancer – vie for a chance to join the New York Mets at spring training.
