Hosted by auto connoisseur Rutledge Wood, each episode invites two superfans into the Chrome Zone, where they compete to transform an ordinary vehicle into an extraordinary Hot Wheels showstopper, inspired by personal stories and pop culture touchstones.

The winner of each episode will take home $25,000 and the chance to enter the finals, where three lucky finalists will transform a different car in hopes of winning a legendary prize – an additional $50,000 and the honor of turning their design into one official Hot Wheels cube-cast car.
