The Big Break All Star Challenge season premiere will pit NASCAR Drivers Kurt Busch, Mike Skinner, Kyle Petty, Hermie Sadler and Boris Said against each other in a special event for charity and bragging rights.
Each All Star Challenge show is a condensed version of the original Big Break series, but with all the action packed into one hour. Contestants are eliminated throughout the competition, with a final pairing battling it out for the crown at the end of the show. Based upon individual performance, the contestants will receive equivalent cash awards to be donated to a charity of their choice.
Tuesdays season premiere of The Big Break All Star Challenge marks the second time NASCAR drivers have been featured for an episode in the series. In the first season, Dale Jarrett, Jamie McMurray, Elliott Sadler, Rusty Wallace, Michael Waltrip and Benny Parsons competed for charity and bragging rights. Jarrett captured the title, earning $5,000 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Upcoming Big Break All Star Challenges include matches with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox and members of the 1972 Miami Dolphins. Episodes from the second season of The Big Break All Star Challenge will premiere Tuesday nights at 10:30 p.m. ET.
