With the NASCAR Cup Series speeding toward its grand finale, the folks at Phoenix Raceway unveiled a special treat to help pump up racing fans even more than they already will be. Barmageddon host and Wrestling Hall of Famer Nikki Garcia will be on hand Sunday, Nov. 5 as a guest emcee to introduce the drivers.

How to Watch

Watch Barmageddon on USA Network and Peacock.

Of course, Nikki's no stranger to intense competition. In addition to her iconic career in the wrestling ring, she joins best buddies Blake Shelton and Carson Daly in the out-of-the-box celebrity game show Barmageddon, which sees the trio's high-profile friends take part in fun and unique contests, like Air Cannon Cornhole, Keg Curling, and Drunken Axe Hole. The show, set at Blake's Nashville bar, Ole Red, is embarking on its second season Monday, November 13 on USA Network.

How does Barmageddon work?

Barmageddon, executive produced by Blake and Carson, pits two celebrities against each other as they compete in a unique set of five games. Each celeb is trying to win a much-needed prize for a viral Internet sensation they've chosen to support. Not only are the games wildly fun, but each losing rival has a chance to even the score by spinning the Wheel of Redemption, a risky move with hilarious consequences.
