The biggest sharks in the automotive high seas return to the land of the Lone Star state for an all-new season of cutthroat, ultracompetitive car flipping on Velocity's hit series DALLAS CAR SHARKS. In season two, tensions between Tommy "The King" Spagnola, Ash "The Wise Guy" Rabah, Martha Davis aka "Mother Hen" and her son JD Cole run hotter than the blazing Texas sun. They're quarrelling over the best deals Dallas auto auctions have to offer, and to turn four-wheeled treasures into the most cash possible for their business. Two all-new episodes of DALLAS CAR SHARKS world premiere back-to-back on Wednesday, April 2 at 10PM and 10:30 PM ET/PT only on Velocity.

"This all-new season of DALLAS CAR SHARKS is even more ruthless than the last," said Robert Scanlon, General Manager, Velocity. "Our sharks are real-life competitors in a high stakes world where it is sink or swim. If they botch one deal by getting a lemon or are outbid by a competitor they run the risk of weakening their companies. Now add in a set of strong-willed, relentless personalities and you've got one of the most-watched and addictive shows on Velocity."

To the victor go the spoils as the DALLAS CAR SHARKS gamble their financial fates week-after-week. With only a short glance at cars that fly by on the auction block, Ash, Tommy, JD and Martha must use their keen eye to sniff out which will deliver the highest profit. Then the action begins as their Texas-sized rivalries kick into high gear when they bait each other into bids, run bids higher to cut into a competitor's profit and talk trash. The conflict is so heated that even Martha isn't afraid to stab her son JD in the back to get her hands on the right car.

Once a shark has their hands on a car the flip truly begins. They check everything from front end to rear end, passenger side to driver side and underneath to make sure they don't have a lemon. Then they do whatever it takes to make sure that car get sold and gets sold fast, but the more work that gets done the less money they take home at the end of the day.
