In this hard-fought contest, only one winner can drive away with the American Dream. For 10 gritty contestants, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it.  Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor, and ambition, they'll fight to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. It's an absurd marketing gimmick at first glance, but the contest proves to be much more.
