Rising Star Brad DeBerti: Design Inspiration and Wild Custom BuildsLast week, we got a chance to sit down with Brad and Doug Deberti and talk to them about their new show, Twin Turbos that airs tomorrow February 28 on Discovery. The father-son duo are gearheads through and through, and make a unique pair in the automotive world. Their new show follows them through their daily routine around the shop, racing, and on Brad's road to the world of NASCAR after a nearly career-ending crash two years ago. Upon seeing Brad's racing talent. Joey Logano has gone out of his way to mentor Brad as he chases victory in the oval. We sat down with the Deberti's to get an inside look at who they are and what they do. Doug: We actually do a lot of kind of crazy stuff. Mostly, it seems like we end up working on newer vehicles. It all started a while back when I built what I call the hype vehicles for Ford and GM, and a few things for Dodge here and there. I think I'm best known for taking these vehicles and making something that you either love or you hate. I did a six-door truck when no one was doing a six-door. I've done a lot of product development with a company called Trends. That was anything out of aluminum, and I did that until there was about 6, products that nobody had. Brad: We were talking about that earlier, and it definitely would be illegal now for how young I was at the shop. I used to make all kinds of stuff. If my brother and I wanted stuff, we always had to work for it. We were always selling stuff [that we made], so we were always in the shop. Given that you have a lot of experience building trucks, was racing trucks a natural progression for you? Brad: Three years ago, we saw an offroad truck commercial on TV. This truck was flying through the air, and we were like, "What the heck is that? It was insane walking through the pits and seeing everyone and the trucks. While we were there, we put a deposit on a truck that was for sale. We went home, finished up a couple of projects, sold them off and went back to buy the truck. We've never done anything like this, so we'd just go to the track and practice. Then we jumped into a few beginner races to get a flavor, and then jumped into the national series, and my first two races I won in the Prolite Class. It's the most competitive class. This was a very competitive time as well. You had to qualify to race in a 32 truck field.

While they will be competing against each other on the track, McConnell and Deberti will be able to work together and collaborate on valuable information about the cars, competitors and the track conditions.

Brad, meanwhile, grew up helping his dad with the custom builds and is also an up and coming racer: With his dad as his coach, the year-old won the Lucas Oil Off Road Pro-Light Championship and Pro-Light Rookie of the Year but was sidelined after a brutal crash. As stock car racing is a costly career, the father and son are now creating cars to fund it. Custom builds and high-stakes racing make for pretty compelling TV viewing, so the Discovery Channel decided to document them for a series. Called Twin Turbosit debuts February 28 th at 10 p. Fatherly spoke to Brad and Doug about their lifelong passion for building cars and how they handle working together. Doug: Brad was born in a car! Not literally but he may as well have been. Cars have been my passion since I could afford a vehicle and so Brad grew up with nothing but vehicles. His passion comes from being in the shop his whole life. My big thing was I would never let my boys play video games or watch TV when it was light outside so they would be riding around on their bikes or working with me in the shop from a young age. And we love building these crazy one-off vehicles and that one went on to win a lot of awards, including a designer award from Ford. That got us some attention and then Discovery Channel came on and loved the concept. Now people get to see all the fun and work that goes into a build. Has it always been this way? And somehow we never get sick of each other. We spend most of our waking hours together and we both have a blast working together. Doug: We also work really hard. But I think we just have a positive energy that sets us apart from a lot of the dramatic relationships you might see elsewhere [on TV]. We are always looking for a challenge. We fix it. Of course, sometimes we have disagreements. Doug: My favorite is a drift truck we built from the second episode. It is awesome. Doug: I had no idea. I just started with passion. Working hard and finding what you really love and care about can lead to unexpected things. So I was mentally and physically ready to get back out there and that became a part of the show.
