If you want to see more of Rutledge Wood, he's one of three hosts (along with Tanner Foust and Adam Ferrara) on the US Top Gear show that has aired for three seasons on the History Channel. (I haven't heard whether it has been renewed for a fourth season.) His persona on Top Gear is patterned a little after James May in the British Top Gear - irreverent and technical. He seems to be making an effort to become more wacky and become the resident comic goof-ball guy at various car and racing events.

Hear, hear! DB was always my favorite "color man." Haven't heard his name come up in a while...

Yes it does...

Painful watching Stewart kick starting his bike with a sore knee. Probably worth the 5 extra pounds that Dungey's bike has, for the electric start.

I was wondering why his mechanic didn't start it for him.

They had Rutlidge on to make Ralphie look good!What a waste of time with all the pre race b.s.Fuckin Little Hanny needs his ass handed to him.The Dunge was on Barcia "Like a Krishna on an airport traveller"before he fell.I'm sure he was gonna be VERY careful when it came to passing him.Unbelieveable luck for Stewart.What happened to Baggett after the wreck on the start,injury?Bike Problems?Love my DVR!

I doubt it is five extra pounds this year since the new 2013 motor eliminated the casting for the kick starter.

Would you rather some bimbo who has no clue what they are talking about? Just like the NFL has done.

He is no James May. James May is entertaining and not annoying.
It appeared that Nicky Hayden also could have done without him.

So did Millsaps prove that Yamaha need to redesign the YZ?

I'd watch the fluff shit if that bearded assclown would jump a freestyle bike into a pool of energy drink stocked with starving alligators.
That right there is lots funnier than anything than Rutledge did all evening.
Spot on!
