About Misfit Garage

Posted:
A spin-off of the hit series Fast N' Loud, the #1 car show on television, MISFIT GARAGE features four mechanics who have all done business with Richard Rawling's Gas Monkey Garage and join forces to create their own hot rod shop to rival Gas Monkey. Will this band of misfits be able to turn their garage into a money-making machine, or will their mistakes sink their business before it gets off the ground?

During the first two seasons of Fast N' Loud, Rawlings, owner of Gas Monkey Garage, had a series of issues with two of his brilliant and colorful mechanics, Tom Smith and Jordan Butler. After finally parting ways last season, Smith and Butler banded together with fellow car pros Thomas Weeks and Scot McMillan to form their own startup garage, Fired Up Garage. The new venture is their chance to go toe-to-toe with Gas Monkey Garage and prove to everyone that they have what it takes to make it big in the hot rod world.

Mechanic Tom Smith began working on cars as a kid, and even raced them for a while as an adult. Now, Smith applies his talent to making and fixing cars, with a particular expertise in drivability.

Thomas Weeks has always poured his blood, sweat and tears into cars. As a young boy, he watched his father work magic under the hoods of cars in their garage. Holding on to the belief that fine cars - not stocks, bonds or real estate - are the true great investments; he has spent his entire life mastering the ins and outs of the automotive industry.

Scot McMillan always dreamed of owning his own garage. His first business - Scot Rod's Garage - was born in his dad's garage. There, McMillan did his first build for pay, with Aaron Kaufman, during their senior year of high school.

Jordan Butler holds degrees in fabrication, street rodding and auto body collision. From the time he could walk, his dad put him to work in the garage, breaking down dirt bikes and other vehicles and putting them back together. He has worked for several different auto shops over the years, including Gas Monkey Garage, and his cars have won numerous track championships in Texas.

The Fired Up Garage crew is pinning their hopes and dreams on their new business venture, determined to prove they have what it takes to make it big in the auto world. Unfortunately, succeeding in the car business proves to be much harder than they bargained for and with Richard Rawlings undermining their efforts at every turn, building a successful business may prove to be a bigger challenge than they can handle.
