Redneck Yacht Club

Adam Richman heads to the Redneck Yacht Club in Punta Gorda, FL, to experience how fans of an off-road motorsport called mudding celebrate their passion. In operation since 2008, the Redneck Yacht Club holds as many as 6 marquee events a year. This weekend is the biggest of them all: "Trucks Gone Wild,” with everything from mud wrestling and mind-blowing 4x4s to hardcore barbecue. Adam gathers the fans that have shared so much with him and returns the favor with a crazy tailgating contraption of his own.
