It takes guts to strap yourself into a car, fully intending on crashing it. You risk life, limb, mental capacity and more, but for a professional stunt driver, that’s just another paycheck to collect at the end of the night. Let’s be frank: audiences love seeing a good crash every once in a while and a good stuntman can bring in the crowds. You know how the chatter goes:
“Wait…he’s gonna run a truck, with a boat attached, through two motorhomes as fast as he can? Hell yes, I’ll be there!”
“Flying Pontiac? Save me a spot near the wall!”
“I’d love to see an Acura go sliding on it’s roof! I’ll bring the kids, they’ll love this!
Brothers Alex and Alexy Benyuk and the team that composes Carmageddon Show strive to provide the best entertainment that they can. This isn’t Evil Knievel-level work, but is instead more along the lines of what you will find at tracks all over North America. There is no question of whether or not it hurts…some of the in-car footage is just cringeworthy…but look on the bright side: you aren’t the one behind the wheel, and Alex, the driver, is…he’s happiest when he’s in the middle of an automotive mangling!
