SPEED's adrenaline-packed performance programming gives viewers the entertainment they want, the information they need and the competition they crave.

Hard Parts: South Bronx: Bronx business owner Joe Ferrer and his tough-as-nails auto parts team hunt down impossible-to-find auto parts. These are customer stories with big deadlines and personal stakes, and we follow the stories through the high drama of a deadline business.

Whipped: "Whipped" is an hourlong competitive game show where four contestants get the chance to show off their driving skills, personalities and courage on our extreme obstacle course. The catch? Contestants will risk their own rides for the chance to trick out their "whip."

Barrett-Jackson: SPEED is the exclusive cable partner of the world's premiere auction for auto collectors. Four times a year SPEED produces marquee "Barrett-Jackson" specials.

January: Scottsdale, Ariz.
April: Palm Beach, Fla.
June: Orange County, Calif.
