A previous American version of Top Gear was broadcast on the History Channel from November 2010 until June 2016. Following a second revamp of the UK version in 2017, BBC America announced that Top Gear would return to the United States in late 2017 as a new show, now titled Top Gear America, to be hosted by actor William Fichtner. Later that month, it was confirmed that British journalist and television host Tom Ford and American drag racer Antron Brown would be Fichtner's co-hosts. Network president, Sarah Barnett, commented, “We are big fans of the mix of cars, credibility and charisma that adds up to the winning formula for Top Gear, and couldn't be happier that BBCA is now the home for the franchise in the US, with Top Gear America joining the original show on our network, Bill, Antron and Wookie are serious gear heads who never take themselves too seriously. It will be quite the trip.” Episodes of Top Gear America will be broadcast on Sunday in the same time slot as the British version. Following a series of teaser trailers featuring The Stig being shipped to and exploring the U.S., the first trailer for the show was released by BBC America on June 29, 2017. That same day, the logo for the first season was unveiled, which features the three hosts and the Stig. Studio and timed celebrity track segments are filmed on location in Las Vegas at Speedvegas.
