Who Is the Host?

Dale Earnhardt Jr. hosts this new special series. As a professional stock car racing driver and a champion team owner, he is passionate about cars and this makes him the ideal person to host ‘The Cars That Made America’.

Reasons to Watch This Series

The first group of people this series will attract is those who are car enthusiasts, especially those who are fans of American cars over other makes and models from elsewhere in the world. It is a chance to learn more about the design, production, and evolution of each of the best-known American car brands and those who are responsible for the brands’ success. Unlike many other car programs that simply focus on the cars, this series approaches the subject from a different angle by focusing equally on those involved in the design and production.
