USA has launched new reality series “The Moment,” where host Kurt Warner helps people get a second chance at their dreams that they had to put on hold for one reason or another. In Thursday’s (April 18) episode, a man who once had racecar-driving aspirations gets another shot.

Kyle Shields was going to sell his professional racing car when Warner gives him a chance to study with NASCAR champion Brendan Gaughan to earn a spot as a NASCAR driver for Richard Childress racing.

In this clip, he tries to make the qualifying time of 26.04 seconds. He misses it by over five seconds each time — will he make it? Tune in Thursday, April 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on USA to find out!
