Accel Performance announced a new web-based reality series called ACCEL IT, where host Jenny Long travels the country and surprises unsuspecting gearheads with FREE, on-site performance upgrades. The automotive enthusiast, who has already entered their car, has minutes to accept the offer of parts from ACCEL, Mr. Gasket, Hays, Lakewood, and QuickTime.
In the first episode, a ’68 Corvette is chosen – one from Hot August Nights in Reno and that was sold in a Barrett-Jackson auction. The car is original stock and gets a Mallory Performance Distributor, ACCEL High Performance Header Plugs spark plug set, ACCEL SuperStock spark plug wires, and an ACCEL SuperStock ignition coil.
Viewers get to decide where the show travels next by submitting their ride through social media with a bit about why they should be chosen.
