Hit Velocity series kicks off its second season with Noah Alexander and his team of master craftsman at Classic Car Studio building a head-turning hot rod for rocker Dale Stewart.
Following its debut in 2017, Speed is the New Black has become Velocity’s most watched freshman series ever. Thanks to this popularity, Velocity has renewed the series for a second season to continue to give fans what they crave – speed, style and performance. Season two starts on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT on the Velocity channel.
“We focus on showcasing the technical side of car building,” said Noah Alexander, owner of Classic Car Studio. “We talk shop, not drama and build cars that not only look great, but run great too. We enjoy producing legitimately awesome restorations that keep our clients coming in and fans inspired.”
This season Speed is the New Black will feature all styles of custom builds and restorations. In the first episode, Dale Stewart, bassist of the high-energy rock band Seether, will bring Classic Car Studio the shell of a ‘31 Model A Ford. Stewart wants to turn the Model A into a mean-looking, Hemi-engined, open-wheel hot rod that he can cruise around in when he’s not on tour.
