Tonight Danica Patrick is joining National Geographic Channel star Bear Grylls in one of the harshest spots in all of North America, the Utah desert of Moab on the next episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls.
In TV Shows Ace exclusive preview below, Bear Grylls takes champion racer, Patrick, out into the Moab desert for some high-octane, pulse-pounding action in the wild.
And the excitement is palpable as Danica revs up and Bear challenges her to a race with a helicopter, the entire filming is a white knuckle moment as the chopper is barely above the ground.
Danica is a pro and she has no issues and is not even distracted as she is tearing across the desert floor with a huge noisy machine hovering over her as they race to the finish line.
Nat Geo says:
“Together they face off against venomous creatures, sheer cliffs, and scorching heat as they make their way across some of the harshest terrain around. Still, nothing is more intimidating than the final challenge that leaves even Danica Patrick unnerved.”
About Running Wild with Bear Grylls:
In 2019, the hit outdoor adventure series Running Wild with Bear Grylls found a new network.

Luxury and pampering are left at the door as each week as a new celebrity guest leaves their comfy homes to join Bear for a total adventure through some of the most challenging environments in the world.
Together, they must work and sort all obstacles as they rely on bushcraft techniques to survive each uniquely difficult location while pushing through both mental and physical limits.
And Bear helps them surmount any and all obstacles in their way. The results are always surprising.
