Travis and the guys compete in NASA's Great Moonbuggy Race — an international competition to create a human-powered lunar vehicle designed to fit aboard a space capsule. Engineering teams around the world spend years designing entries … but the Rednecks build theirs in one weekend. After all, Daddy did work on the original Apollo space program — so they should have a leg up.
