AmeriCarna takes viewers on a tour through American culture through the lens of one its greatest inventions: the automobile. Three-time NASCAR champion Evernham hosts this cross-country trek, chasing down the cars that had a profound impact on shaping our national identity. From the inception of American racing at the turn of the 20th century, to the Woody wagons that defined California culture in the 1950s and 1960s, to the infamous drag strips of the 1970s, AmeriCarna lifts the hood on legendary four-wheeled treasures that continue to have a profound influence on our cultural DNA.
