Backroad Truckers TV show has local stars MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

History Channel’s exploration of the B.C. Interior will continue with Backroad Truckers. Season 1 of the documentary series revolves around Donny Kleinfelder of

Barriere and Dave Schwandt of White Lake, the stars who have parlayed appearances on another History Channel offering, Tappenbased Rust Valley Restorers, into a show of their own. “Five years ago, would I have thought I’d be on TV? I would never have thought so,” said Kleinfelder, the 400-or-so pound man

who goes by Big Donny. “It’s fun. It’s a lifechanging event.” In Backroad Truckers, the stars’ businesses are pitted against each other, with a focus on hotshotting, which is the process of moving time-sensitive loads from points A to B, often through perilous off-road conditions. “It’s a high-octane show, with big adventures, crazy scenery, vehicles you’d see in a kids’ playroom, but imagine if the playroom was inside a Mad Max movie,” said showrunner Matt Shewchuk, who gets executive producer credits, along with Mayhem Entertainment business partner Tyson Hepburn. These types of series only achieve success if personalities click with viewers, who will have plenty to choose from with Backroad Truckers. Schwandt, who runs Twisted Auto Recycling, is a workaholic family man who has five children, a salvage dealer who loves building cars for demolition derbies and restoring old snowmobiles. “Me and Donny have known each other for 20 years,” said Schwandt, who grew up in the Salmon Arm area. “Who would have thought we’d be on not one, but two huge shows? We have the potential to become a huge hit. It was not even remotely on my mind for something like this to happen.” Shewchuk penned a concept for a hotshotting show prior to his involvement with Rust Valley Restorers, which is in the midst of filming season 3. After meeting characters such as Donny and Dave while working on seasons 1 and 2 of the car restoration series, the time was right to make a pitch to Corus Entertainment, History Channel’s parent company. “As each piece came together, it became more and more apparent that, yes, this could be an amazing show and we could tell some amazing stories,” Shewchuk said, noting filming brought the crew as far north as Yellowknife. Kleinfelder, who spent a good chunk of

his life in Chase, employs an eclectic crew that includes ex-con Craig Gruden, big-rigoperating little person Dale Kristensen and Angela Kirstein, a fearless foul-mouthed driver. “I don’t care what anybody looks like, as long as they don’t have bad habits,” said Kleinfelder, whose son, Little Donny, also features on the show. “You’ve got to kind of take what you get. It’s two families trying to survive.” The stars insist there has been animosity between them in the past, noting the conflict is not just a storyline drummed up to increase ratings. “We’ve butted heads over the years legitimately,” said Schwandt, who used to work for Kleinfelder. “There is no baloney in that situation whatsoever. It gives great exposure to the industry, of what it takes to actually do something like this. These back roads we do travel on are pretty treacherous sometimes.” The Interior and Shuswap, along with other B.C. regions, will again be given a platform on the nationally televised show. Kamloops, Barriere, Sandon and White Lake are pictured in the first episode. What the audience thinks of Kleinfelder and Schwandt will go a long way in determining the success of the show, with Corus and History Channel executives left to decide whether to green light a second season. Episode 1 will air this Thursday (March 4) at 10 p.m.
