Rawlings will help garage owners make their businesses more profitable with his new TV series, “Garage Rehab,” now airing on the Discovery Channel. The show includes Russell J. Holmes as project manager and Chris Stephens as garage designer. The crew will take over a garage for a short time, making all the business decisions with the goal of increasing profits.
Rawlings, a native of Fort Worth, TX, was a firefighter, police officer and paramedic. He eventually left those jobs to open Gas Monkey Garage, a world-renowned hot rod shop that has produced cars for people around the world. Richard is a veteran of transcontinental road rallies, and won the Gumball 3000 and the Bullrun twice. He is the current world record holder in the Cannonball Run, having broken the record that stood since 1979. He covered the 2,811 miles from New York to Los Angeles in 31 hours and 59 minutes with an average speed of 87.6 miles per hour.
In Rawlings' other show, FAST N’ LOUD, he searches Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at Gas Monkey Garage. He travels the back roads, searching barns, swap meets and open fields for that one rare ride to restore. The show has a very popular run on the Discovery Channel. “Garage Rehab” is predicted to be another huge hit.
