Mark was Expert for the "Auto Amigos" team.
The show was filmed on the RDF Media set in LA in Aug 2002. The teams were challenged to build three wheeled jet powered tirkes and later drag race them against the clock to see which was faster. The Jet Trikes challenge world premier was  Wednesday April 2nd, 2003 at 9:00pm
