“Smoke IS the Bandit,” the faux remake series of “Smokey and the Bandit” starring NASCAR star Tony Stewart, has come to an end.

The aptly-named “The Big Finish” was released Thursday, ending the six-episode series (including the prequel promotion episode).

The final edition concludes with Stewart (aka The Bandit) and his sidekick The Snowman (Darrell Waltrip), delivering a truckload of Mobil 1 oil 10 minutes before the deadline of a bet they had with Big and Little Enos (Ricky Craven and Hermie Sadler).

The final episode is followed by a few humorous outtakes, just like the original movie itself.

The original Smokey and the Bandit had two fairly forgettable sequels, but it’s unclear if Stewart will reprise his role in another series for Mobil 1.

However, he left the door open by agreeing to yet another bet with Big and Little Enos to pick up a truck of Mobil 1 transmission fluid in Boston.

We’ll kind of miss not seeing more episodes, but we have to wonder one thing: how is it that everyone in the series is billed with their regular names, but Kenny Wallace gets special billing of “Special Guest Appearance by Mr. Kenny Wallace”?

Just sayin’.

If you missed any of the episodes, they follow below in order, as well as a special “Behind the Scenes” version:

    Hokey but probably fun for the crew.

    I think it’s about time Stewart grows-up and pays more attention to driving his racecar instead of making STUPIT movie remakes. And in addition too that, he also needs to learn how to RESPECT his elders, ie; Richard Petty, I guess his parents didn’t teach him that!!!!
    Smoke is a good nickname for Stewart, it what comes at THE END of a FIRE!
