The term "crash course" refers to a fast-paced, generally informal course in learning, or more literally, a driving course on which cars are generally expected to crash into objects. As of 2012, it refers to several works of fiction:

Imagine if {{ABC}} designed a GameShow based off DrivesLikeCrazy. Okay, now make contestants HotBlooded throw in some CarFu, add a little [[{{Series/Wipeout2008}} Wipeout]], and sprinkle liberally with [[MadeOfExplodium exploding]] [[EveryCarIsAPinto cars]].

Yeah, it's ''that'' kind of a show.

Each show begins with five teams of two competing in various driving competitions. Basically, take every vehicle trope that exists, make it absurdly awesome, and make it a Crash Course event. Teams get eliminated until two remain, which take on an obstacle course to race for $50,000. Hosts Orlando Jones and Dan Cortese provide snarky commentary.

It's either SoBadItsGood, SoCoolItsAwesome, or just insane car-related entertainment.
----
!!This show provides examples of:
* BadassDriver: How many drivers can say they've successfully chased after a speeding semi, dodged falling barrels, then drove up the ramp and boarded the truck?
* CaptainCrash: Apparently contestants have driving licenses. It's hard to tell with some of them.
* CarFu: Car Dominoes, anyone?
* CatchPhrase: Orland is desperately trying to make "Two reds and a green" one.
* CoolCar: Well, not exactly. The cars ''are'' modified with roll cages and lots of reinforcement, though.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Those who don't end up becoming a BadassDriver do this.
* DontTryThisAtHome: Repeated ad naseum in case some moron decides to roll a car for fun.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Orlando had a "showmance" with one couple that never stopped smiling.
* EveryCarIsAPinto: Purposely used. They love making cars "explode" with the magic of gasoline.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Besides the show's name, most of the games work this way. Like Car Bowling.
* [[IAlwaysWantedToSayThat I Always Wanted To Do That]]: One contestant purposely drove off a truck ramp in attempt to flip his car. He nearly took out a few workers and a camera on a golf cart.
* MadeOfExplodium: They probably spend half their budget on pyrotechnics.
* MomentOfAwesome: At least one per episode.
* NightmareFuel / ParanoiaFuel: Flipping a car onto its roof and being stuck inside. Even with reinforced cars, protective gear, and paramedics on standby...that's still going to be terrifying.
* RampJump: All over the place, including the flip-your-car-upside-down-stunt-ramp variant.
* SerialEscalation: How many cars will they crash? How many things will go up in flames? How many crazy drivers will drive their passenger to tears?
* {{Squick}}: Siblings that were constantly hugging and rather...[[BrotherSisterIncest touchy-feely]].
** One contestant called his mother "baby". Repeatedly.
-->'''Orlando''' (''to contestant'') Did you just call your mother "baby"?
-->'''Contestant''': I'm just getting hyped up, baby!
-->'''Orlando''' (''to Dan''): Did he just call me "baby"??
* ThoseTwoGuys: That's kinda what Orlando and Dan are there for.
