Street & Performance's Mark Campbell with the show's Executive Producer Norvell Rose.

Street & Performance Selected for New Reality TV Series – “Mountain Motors” to Air on Real America TV Network


Real America TV, a new network planning a national launch on the 4th of July, 2014, is filming its first major production at a custom hot rod shop located in Mena, Arkansas. The company, Street & Performance on #1 Hot Rod Lane, will be home of a reality TV show called Mountain Motors.

Street & Performance is a very well known name among the local area but may not be a name recognizable in main-stream America. However, in the street rod world, the company is known globally. Mark Campbell is a legend in the industry and his company engineers some of the best custom motor builds in the world.

“Its incredible to see the creative engineering capacity hidden in the mountains of Mena, Arkansas,” said Eric Odom, Managing Director for Real America TV. “What these folks do, forging engine parts from nothing and building some of the most beautiful cars you’ll ever see, is a true testament of American ingenuity and the American entrepreneurial spirit that still thrives to this day.”

Network management met with company owner Mark Campbell and toured Street & Performance facilities in December of 2013. Interviews with Campbell’s family and staff were conducted at the end of December and on New Years Day (2014) the network agreed to film a pilot this February.

Campbell told The Pulse, it was not a hard decision to make when presented with the opportunity. “I just told them [his family] we were going to do it. It’s not only going to be good for us… it’ll be good for Mena.” When asked if they were ready to be America’s next Robertson family, Mark joked saying, “I could sure use the duck calls!”

Local officials are excited at the possibility of what a show based in Mena could generate for the local economy, specifically, the tourism industry.

Filming of the pilot will take place the week of February 10th and production crews will return later to begin filming for the full season of the show.

Behind-the-scenes updates, footage, pictures and details about the show will be made available via the network’s official Facebook page at and on Mountain Motor’s Facebook page at The network’s website at is expected to go live in March of 2014.

  6. Although I worked for Mark as an East Coast Street & Performance representative, he was not only an associate in business, he was a FRIEND (by definition). When we first became acquainted, he provided me with the opportunity of a life time (representing S&P) as an East Coast facility, working in behalf of S&P and trying to the best of my ability to meet Mark’s expectations. He was always complimentary, supportive, encouraging and helpful. He had a motto that everyone was familiar with, “if you don’t like it, you don’t own it” and he lived by his commitment to his customers. Everyone’s knowledge of his integrity is well known throughout the world, especially in the street rodding industry. Although there are many well known and qualified individuals in the industry, I can’t think of any that can walk in Mark’s shoes. He is a legend in our time and the legacy that he has left behind will speak for itself. I am honored to have been considered a friend and shall always remember Mark as one of the greatest individuals that I have ever known. I am going to miss Mark more than one can imagine, but I will always remain in touch with Lisa, Tammy and S&P personnel.
