SPEEDVEGAS is going to be the home track for the upcoming season of "Top Gear America."

The show is based off the UK smash hit "Top Gear," which features reviews of vehicles ranging from the latest supercars to iconic classics. The American spinoff is hosted by actor William Fichtner, NHRA Top Fuel Division World-Champion Drag Racer Antron Brown, and British Automotive Journalist Tom "Wookie" Ford.

“When we engineered the SPEEDVEGAS track, we wanted it to appeal to the motorsports industry’s most devoted enthusiasts,” said Aaron Fessler, chief executive officer of SPEEDVEGAS. “Being chosen as the home track for a ‘Top Gear’ production... is incredibly exciting.”

"Top Gear America" premiers on BBC America at 8 p.m. EDT/PDT on July 30.
