The Rocket City Rednecks unveil the ultimate tailgating vehicle among 100,000 fans at Talladega Superspeedway during the crème de la crème of NASCAR races - The Good Sam Club 500. The over-the-top creation boasts a 10-foot submarine-style periscope, a putt-putt deck, large-screen televisions that can receive satellite TV and aerial footage of the crowd transmitted by a homemade spy satellite, a liquid-nitrogen-powered 'super beer cooler' and ingeniously designed barbecue grills.
