THESE JOBS DON’T COME WITH HEALTH INSURANCE!
Meet the last American “Hell Drivers,” a traveling band of stuntmen who earn a living as real-life crash test dummies. At county fairs and small racetracks across the country, these amateur daredevils smash school busses, mobile homes, and the occasional flaming garbage truck — with no more protection than a motorcycle helmet and ordinary seatbelt.
Harboring no dreams for Hollywood, these Hell Drivers barely earn enough to fill their gas tanks. But for them, almost dying is the only way to live.
In addition to providing the latest news on “Hell Drivers” the documentary, this space will also explore the psychology of stunts (ranging from professional daredevils to ‘Jackass’ copycats) and the ongoing adventures of Crash Moreau, Doug Danger, Louis “Rocket” Re and Rocky Hardcore.
