Ever notice how every single car show, hot rod show, performance test drive show, never displays their subjects disobeying any traffic laws, including the posted speed limit? Ever notice on close up camera shots of the dashboard, the speedometer never indicates a speed greater than the legal limit?
I suspect there are all sorts of common and statute laws that forbid just what this advertisement implies, but does not explicitly state. Certainly under common law, any participant would not be able to collect any promised compensation, should they enter into a contract that requires them to break the law, because that contract would be immediately unenforceable.

Maybe I am jaded, but the problem I see is that these shows aren't really about cars (or cooking, house flipping, or driving on icy Canadian roads). They are about manufactured human conflict and drama. This will not be a Baja 1000 documentary, it will be a made for TV Gumball Rally filled with stereotypical teams. There will be the two hot girls in a pink Prius, the two old British guys of indeterminate sexuality in an MG , a couple rednecks in a 4 x 4 Dodge and a couple rich kids from a New England state in a Ferrari.

Please keep BMW out of it. If you apply and are chosen, you should probably re-evaluate your fashion, educational and general life choices.

Maybe I'm equally jaded, but this is exactly how I see this so-called 'race' forming up as well... Although it sounds like it could be fun -- if it truly was just a race across the country for a purse of $100k... But a couple "average Joes" like my brother and I almost certainly wouldn't pass the screen test. We'd be quickly passed over for other more 'marketable' cast members -- like the two wannabe 'gangstas' from Chicago driving their 'donk;' or two SoCal punks in their roached-out 'ricer'... After all, we gotta have a love interest for the hot gals in the Prius...

And given that one can drive non-stop across the United States in 48 hours or less -- depending on the departure point and the destination -- I question how much true 'racing' footage will be airing compared to footage from all of the 'mandatory' rest stops where the teams will be 'interacting'...? Especially since my strategy for winning the 'race' would be to split driving duties with my brother and go straight through without stopping for anything more than food, fuel, and bathroom breaks... So in the end, there's only so much people will watch from 48 hours of video footage showing my brother and me trading witty barbs about one another; or our insightful observations about Kansas, or the hot girls in the pink Prius, or the weather (or lack thereof) in Death Valley, or the mystery meat in the burger we had for lunch, or the questionable driving habits of other drivers on I-70...

I'm also wondering exactly how, in practical terms, this cross-county race effort would be funded? Both my brother and I would have to have to take off from work for the duration of the filming -- which I'm sure will be longer than the aforementioned 48 hours... So, who's paying for gas, lodging, food, etc...?

True enough, but I'd still love to do it with my 29 year old son. It would be a blast.

I fully agree; doing something like that would be a lot of fun.

Too bad it's a Hollywood 'reality' race -- into which they'll interject 'reality drama' (like encouraging the teams to sabotage the prized vehicles of the other team members) because they think the resulting squabbles will be more interesting for viewers than the real-life drama of the competition... Thanks, but no thanks...

Frankly, I'd be the first one to abandon their 'script' by following my own -- which actually might be more interesting for their viewers in the end. But each team would probably be under contract, so I don't need the legal hassle that would result from me turning their 'reality' program into real life... And ultimately, I can't even stand to watch so-called 'reality-based' programing; so there's no point in me participating in one... Hopefully, if no one else participates, perhaps it will force the producers of this kind of so-called 'entertainment' into re-thinking their offerings by providing us with something considerably more entertaining...? But I think I'm asking for too much there...
