NBC auto racing analyst and former host of Top Gear U.S., Rutledge Wood, will host The Reveal and the Top Tech Challenge at RVX: The RV Experience in Salt Lake City March 12-14. The national showcase will highlight the newest innovations in the RV world, and Rutledge is excited to share the coolest trends and creations with viewers! And if you think RVs are mainly for retirees, think again! RV buyers are younger and more diverse than ever.

After graduating from the University of Georgia, Wood traveled across America for Country Music Television and fell in love with the open road. In 2005, he started working for the SPEED Channel traveling the NASCAR circuit, which led him to a spot to host Top Gear U.S. on the History Channel. Rutledge now covers NASCAR and a multitude of other events for NBC Sports. He’s covered the Kentucky Derby, the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil, the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea and many other great events in the sports world. Rutledge’s passion for cooking and travel has culminated with the show Southern and Hungry on the Cooking Channel, which highlights the love of Southern cuisine and travel.

So much of Wood’s work life is on the road, that it was a natural for him to adopt an RV lifestyle. Says Wood: “Whether it’s covering NASCAR for NBC Sports, or traveling with my family across the country, it’s something that’s a part of me. I’m so excited to be a part of The Reveal and see all of the newest and greatest RVs this industry has to offer!”

The Reveal will air on DISH Network during RVX, March 12-14th. RVX is your chance to learn about emerging consumer trends, the latest RVs and other outdoor products before camping season heats up.
