Into action of the extreme kind? You might want to check out a new reality TV series on HISTORY called American Daredevils. These guys are today’s Evel Knievels. They’re absolutely fearless as they constantly and willingly head into dangerous situation after dangerous situation.

American Daredevils synopsis: From the dirt tracks of America’s heartland to the bright lights of the country’s biggest speedways, American Daredevils brings to life the stories of the men who proudly carry the torch lit by Evel Knievel.  These daredevils travel the country performing live death-defying acts without the luxuries of rehearsals or second chances. They launch themselves through the air in cars and motorcycles, light themselves on fire, jump off tall buildings and risk their lives in countless crash and burn stunts all for the freedom of making a living while doing what they love. These are the last of the daredevil breed and as their lives unfold, it becomes clear that “the stunt” is only part of their story.
