CONCORD, N.C. (August 26, 2019) – Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will team up with Duane “Dog” Chapman and his exhilarating new unscripted series “Dog’s Most Wanted” when the NASCAR Cup Series returns to the iconic Darlington Raceway for the famed Southern 500 on September 1. Stenhouse’s No. 17 Ford Mustang will be fully-wrapped to promote WGN America’s new series “Dog’s Most Wanted,” which features Duane “Dog” Chapman, his late wife Beth and a hand-picked team of bounty hunters bringing criminals to justice. The series premieres on Wednesday, September 4 at 9/8c on WGN America.
“It’s going to be awesome to have ‘Dog’s Most Wanted’ on the car at Darlington,” said Stenhouse Jr. “We are looking forward to having him at the race and hopefully he can help us track down and capture a trip to victory lane.”
The legendary bounty hunter and TV personality will be in attendance as the green flag waves on the fifth edition of the South Carolina track’s ‘throwback’ weekend.
In this new series, “Dog” and the late Beth Chapman will be supported by a ferocious team of hunters Dog calls “The Dirty Dozen.” Together they will go on a cross-country manhunt to track down a carefully curated list of Dog’s Most Wanted fugitives.
