Discovery sets ‘Fat N Furious Rolling Thunder’ return for May 2

It’s the start of a new racing season in the rustbelt of Ohio and once again, Tommy Christmas and his boys at Christmas Auto are back at it, restoring old, beat-up muscle cars and getting ‘em on the drag strip. The series returns to Discovery’s Motor Mondays on May 2 at 8pm ET/PT.

Tommy and his hilariously larger than life crew, Chuck, Steve, and Andy, know all the tricks to make any car go furiously faster.  No order is too large to fill for Tommy and his three best friends. They can restore any classic muscle car to make it race-ready, and are paid handsomely for their expertise.

But this racing season, the builds go beyond speed.  Every car has a story to tell.  Some are classic, some are strange, and some are inspiring.  From sentimental to whacky, classic to hot-rod, Tommy and the Christmas Auto boys continue to dazzle with jaw-dropping transformations that bring their clients’ hopes and visions to life.

Fixing up old cars is always challenging, but when fast equals cash, every second counts.  And with some hefty paychecks on the line, Tommy and his guys will have to go bigger than ever.

FAT N’ FURIOUS: ROLLING THUNDER is produced for Discovery Channel by Gurney Productions where Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney are Executive Producers with Rick Sasson and John Stokel as Co-Executive Producers.
