So, who is Rutledge Wood?
Rutledge Wood is a simple man. What you see is literally what you get. Having derived his passion for owning and wrenching on cars from his Dad, Rutledge has owned over 60 cars. However, that’s not to say 60 nice cars. After answering a Craigslist ad, Rutledge got his first TV gig with SPEED. While at SPEED, Rutledge was tapped to co-host Top Gear on History, now in it’s sixth season. From SPEED he moved onto NBC Sports where he covers NASCAR and host of other motorsports. This summer he will be featured on NBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympics.
