This is a self contained hybrid docu series with one tent pole event each week and the episode ending with a race.This could be made into an arched show.

Tim our main character has a major handicap of being a hunchback/humpback, never looking for any self pity he is on a mission to prove himself as a drag racer that has to be taken seriously. Tim's father Kenny a racer himself wants to help him out as much as possible hoping someday his son will stand in the winners circle. Kenny is a very expert mechanic in building dragsters, suffers from serious back injuries. C.J. Murdock is one of Tim's rival and is committed that Tim never wins a race. C. J. has the support of his family along with his father and grandfather whom are all very experienced drag racers and mechanics.

Jeff Flood (current world champ)a family friend and fellow racer gives Tim zero chance of ever winning a race, but knows if Tim gets his car dialed in he will be someone to be taken
seriously. During the recent past years of economic down turn Jeff has relied more on his racing abilities to put food on the table than his roofing job. Charlie who drives a truck for a living brings a chaotic dimension to this group of friends. Tim takes in other work to make a dollar, from painting vehicles,to mechanic repair,and has begun building drift trikes and racing them competitively. Sometimes Tim loses money on the jobs he does as in the case of a truck fuel tank repair which explode the truck.
