A car's air intake, known as a scoop, with multiple signatures who worked on Fastest Cars in the Dirty South.
Our explosive start

In 2018, we were in the dark backwoods of Tennessee filming a race car hurtling down a dragstrip at 140 mph. Suddenly, the entire front hood of the car tore itself from its hinges, flew through the air and slammed into an overhead sign gantry, exploding into dozens of pieces.  

Like many race car hoods, it contained an air intake, called a scoop, that was lost in the impact. The next morning, our cast combed through the debris and found the Flying Scoop! Later, it was presented to us as a gift that the cast/crew all signed.

That scene not only became a pivotal moment in the first show we created, it symbolizes everything we love about the stories we make:

the best moments in a story are the ones you never see coming...
