Get an exclusive sneak of Monday April 30's all new episode of TOP GEAR - and see as Richard Hammond visits Texas to immerse himself in the world of NASCAR Racing.

Here, Richard leads the grid of 43 cars out on the NASCAR track. But is the Hamster up to the task to leading 39,000 horsepower?! As he instructs, "Don't look in the mirror, it's like being attacked by Tigers!"

During his visit to Texas Motor Speedway, Hammond explores the history of NASCAR and discovers how the sport evolved into the spectacle that it is today.

Plus, he learns what it's like to be behind the wheel of a machine running 850 horsepower from those who know best: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stars Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Juan Pablo Montoya. Hammond even gets a driving lesson from Kyle Petty, former NASCAR driver and son of NASCAR legend Richard Petty.

TOP GEAR is back for a mind-blowing season 18 full of amazing stunts, challenges and special features. Find out why this season has been anticipated like no other as the TOP GEAR trio - Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May - take cars to the limit and beyond, often in some of the most far-flung corners of the world.

This season, the Stars in the Reasonably Priced Car are shining brighter than ever! Including such mega-celebs as Ryan Reynolds, Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Shame), Black Eyed Peas' Will.i.am, Matt LeBlanc (Friends, Episodes), Doctor Who's Matt Smith, Guns & Roses' Slash and more.
