I don't like him or his show, personally.


He's too over the top and it feels like he's trying too hard.


I absolutely hate his ads, specially after the genius of the Dodge Brother's ads.

The reason it looks like he was sitting at the line doing a burnout is because thats what happens with Hellcats when you try to use Launch Control with the RPM higher than 2000. The rear brakes are not strong enough to keep the rear tires held. And you do like a slow motion burnout. I've seen it in person and in several videos. Probably why they implemented the transbrake in the Demon and the newer cars. As for just standing on it after the launch, yeah hes a moron. I hope dodge makes him pay for that car.

Drinking + Rawlings + standing on the pedal continuously...what could possibly go wrong, I wonder?

I watched his show religiously until Aaron left, but not much at all since then. Anyone know if his ratings are still good, or did Aaron's departure irreversibly damage the show? My wife and I stopped at GMG in Key West a couple of years ago, and it was so-so. I've heard that location closed earlier this year.

Yes he does come off as trying to hard doesn't he? He should become the new Chevrolet spokesman and do their tv ads.

Bingo, me too. I don't like Aaron's show either, surprisingly. Weird dude.

My suspicion is he has a (big) involvement in Fired Up garage, it all seems a bit cozy and convenient to me, and being the "great" business man he portrays himself to be.

2016 SRT 392, A8, Granite Crystal.

How hard is it to drive in a straight line. Really...only marginally simpler than driving around in a circle turning left for 3 hours.
