Speedvision, the network brand that started the auto entertainment revolution, returned in October 2022 with the high-octane programming that made it the standard against which all other vehicle media is measured. As a recognized network brand that originated the automotive lifestyle genre in the 90s, Speedvision delivers a signature combination of highly-entertaining storytelling, iconic hosts, and premier production values, making it the preeminent destination for auto-passionate viewers.
Castro began his career detailing cars and quickly moved into the customization area just as hip-hop began its climb toward the mainstream and in tandem with sports stars receiving multi-million-dollar contracts for their services. Castro was there, ready to build cars for this new generation of superstars. From customized Jeeps to Maybachs, Bentleys, and Lamborghinis, Castro’s work brought style, taste, and speed to his client’s garages. He’s built cars for a wide variety of artists, including Pamela Anderson, the Rolling Stones, Eminem, and DJ Khaled, and continues to serve the highest echelons of the entertainment business with new builds and fresh content every year. His memoir, Unique Hustle: My Drive To Be the Best Car Customizer in Hip Hop and Sports became a bestseller in its category upon release in 2019.
