It’s the one-hour Season Finale, celebrity motor sports’ night of
nights, and this inaugural competition has come down to this — a
final, no holds barred, winner takes all event. The finalists will be
drafted by a Gillette Young Gun, who will mentor, coach and strategize
their path to victory. The Superstars will drive their own finely
tuned, 650 horsepower beast through a pit crew challenge time trial,
adding the final thrilling component to this authentic stock car racing
experience. In the dramatic conclusion, six Superstars will race-off to
be the first to lift the championship trophy, on "Fast Cars &
Superstars — Gillette Young Guns Celebrity Race," SUNDAY, JUNE 24
