Just when we thought that every reality TV concept had been done, CMT goes and announces an all-new docuseries centered around NASCAR called Racing Wives. The new show will follow the never-before-seen private lives of the wives (and a fiancée) of some of NASCAR’s most well-known drivers.
Sisters-in-law Ashley and Samantha Busch, married to NASCAR drivers Kurt and Kyle Busch, will star in the new unscripted CMT reality series alongside Whitney Ward Dillon, a former cheerleader now married to Daytona 500 winner Austin Dillon.
Mariel Lane, Whitney’s best friend – a Monster Energy Girl and fiancée to Paul Swan, a rear tire changer for Austin Dillon’s race team – will star in the series as well.
Also featured is Amber Balcaen, an aspiring NASCAR driver new to the racing community who left everything, including her boyfriend, back home in Canada to chase her dreams of racing in the big leagues.
“Of course I’m not a wife of a driver, but the show follows my journey of me as the racecar driver on my pursuit of being in NASCARs top series,” wrote Balcaen on Instagram.
The eight-episode, hour-long unscripted series will be set in the Racing Wives’ homes in Lake Norman, North Carolina and will debut in early 2019 and be paired with the second season of Music City. Should be very interesting. And if Jay Cutler has taught us nothing else, it’s that reality TV can, indeed, be fun!
