Matt Farah, longtime friend of Autoblog and host/producer of The Smoking Tire, pinged us this weekend to let us know about a new project he's involved with: a scripted web drama called Turn 9. Basically, it's a car-flavored variation of the Entourage formula, following the career of fictional race driver Kyle Turren and his buddies. In addition to the requisite parties, hot rides, and bikini-clad eye candy, Turn 9 is set against a backdrop of real racing series and will feature appearances by real drivers and celebrities as the story unfolds.
Farah plays lead character Turren's crew chief (aptly named "Matt") and is basically responsible for handling all the car-related stuff on the program. Sounds like fun, and since network TV utterly fails at car shows, we'll be sure to check out Turn 9 when it premieres online. Hit the jump for a brief teaser reel, and if you don't already, be sure to follow Matt's ongoing exploits at TheSmokingTire.com as well.
