By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

NASCAR driver Kurt Busch will be on Fast N’ Loud on Monday, Nov. 13. Busch asks the Gas Monkey Garage to make him a 200-mph Pantera.

According to the preview, the Pantera is yellow. At this time, it’s not clear what Busch will do with the car until the episode airs.

This isn’t the first-time that Gas Monkey Garage has made cars for famous people. In addition, it’s not the first-time they made one for an athlete.

The episode featuring Busch will be the fifth episode in season 10 and the 120th show in the series. During season 8 and show 99, the Gas Monkey Garage group re-did a turbo-charged EcoBoost ’71 Ford Pantera that Aaron Kaufman and his co-workers built for Barrett-Jackson Northeast.

Something happened with the Pantera, which was expected to go to the auction, and was replaced by Richard Rawling’s $250,000 2005 Ford GT instead.

Season 4 in Sept. 2013 debuted with “Dale Jr.’s Sick Nomad.” Dale Earnhardt Jr., the NASCAR driver, who is retiring after this season, asked the group for a custom-built Nomad, which he hoped to use for a road trip vacation. The crew then built him a ’56 Chevy Nomad, which they did in record time and then delivered it to his Mooresville, N.C. home.
