Upcoming Highlights
 
   
As star of the wildly popular Fast N’ Loud on the Discovery Channel, motor mastermind Richard Rawlings searches the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at his famous Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas. A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Richard followed in his dad’s footsteps and developed a passion for cars from an early age, building cars and attending car shows with him.
Richard has held several jobs to feed his car habit. He was a firefighter, police officer and paramedic all before he was 21 years old. He eventually left those jobs to start his own business, building a printing and advertising company from the ground up. He later sold it so he could fund his next venture: Gas Monkey Garage — a world-renowned hot rod shop that has produced and shipped cars for people around the world.
Richard says: "Bottom line, if we’re gonna have fun, it better have a motor!"
Richard will be the Keynote Speaker during the General Session, which starts at 8 am on Wednesday in the Junior Ballroom.
