To kick off the season, Big Kenny and Charlie will head to Tulsa, Oklahoma to visit builder Chris Wollard and check out his custom-made motorized robot vehicle, one of the more unique creations the duo has visited throughout three seasons of the show.

The trio then take the robot for a spin around downtown Tulsa, stopping traffic all around the city.  

Throughout the season, Big Kenny and Charlie travel to Las Vegas, NV, Nashville, TN, Shasta Lake, CA, and more checking out incredible creations including a military-grade monster truck that’s fueled by cooking oil, a semi-submersible watercraft, and even the incredible Volkswagen collection curated by comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias himself. In full, the season will feature 12, 30-minute episodes, concluding with a ‘best of’ episode where the duo break down their favorite and most iconic moments of season three. 

“I couldn’t be more excited to team up with my wingman Charlie again for season three of ‘Crank It Up,’” said host Big Kenny. “Each builder we meet and vehicle or creation we ride together has a unique story alongside it, and it’s thrilling to get to share with the world. There are inspirational undertones to each episode, and I thank Circle Network for bringing us back to share these stories for season three.” 

“The energy that Big Kenny and Charlie bring to their show is unmatched,” said Circle Network’s General Manager, Drew Reifenberger. “This is a show for the whole family and I’m excited to bring it back for a third season. Plus, the backstories behind each vehicle, creation or collection are really fun to share, and the duo does a great job of learning all about the lives and inspirations behind each builder and their creation.”
