The 405 guys head to California to take on smack talking street racers from Los Angeles. On race night, heated exchanges escalate, with trash talking, spitting incidents, and nearly a full out brawl. Meanwhile, Farmtruck and AZN take a trip to Hollywood.
The Official Street Outlaws OKC Apparel Crew would like to thank you for your support! Monday night on the season premier the show reached record numbers! 2.5 Million viewers to be precise! We were the number 2 show on cable television that day, second to only the WWE tournament. For that we thank you!
That being said, we’d also like to ask you to stay tuned! We’ll do our best here to keep up with the drivers and their events to help keep you all informed. We’ll be updating photos, bios and news as much as we can. We will also be releasing new merchandise soon even though we’re currently in the off-season. Expect some patches and hats next. Thanks again for your continued support!
It was an emotional start to the beginning of Street Outlaws last night. It’s been about a year since Flip’s passing and though a lot has happened he hasn’t and will never be forgotten. Flip’s El Camino, “The Old Slut” has been sitting in Chief’s barn for the past year. Since Chief’s return to the list, he’s had his and Flip’s childhood friend, Kamikaze Chris around to help out at the shop. Chief felt it might be time to give the El Camino a new driver and resurrect her. He needed someone crazy for the job and who better than someone nicknamed Kamikaze. The Elco started up first try for Kamikaze, it was meant to be. They immediately got the car in the shop and made a few tweaks to ensure the brakes and other things were in racing order.
We also had a surprise appearance from BoostedGT last night. Boosted showed up with a pop-up camper, an address change form and an application for an Oklahoma driver’s license. He knew he had to be in the 405 to be apart of the 405 OKC crew, and wanted to be part of the fastest crew in the country!
With Boosted and Kamikaze now in the crew, Chief decided to take a little “family” vacation and win some money while at it. The OKC crew all hitched up their cars to their trucks and booked it to New Orleans to take on the fastest drivers in the dirty south.
The first few races started out pretty rocky. The first race Boosted won by default due to a jumped light, Derek lost the 2nd match-up by crossing the centerline when his opponent’s engine blew up. Murder Nova didn’t even get off the line because he hadn’t boosted into the second step yet before the light went off. Friction was high, smack-talk was flying and you could see a few fists tensing up. Nova’s opponent was cool about it though, saw the Nova never let off the trans break and decided to give him a second go at it.
From that point on it was all wins and everyone started to cool down. Murder Nova hooked right away and pulled out about 2 car-lengths front for the win. Big Chief’s The Crow won by over a bus-length. Monza and the Mustang he was against were neck-and-neck for only a second before Monza smoked him by 2 bus-lengths. When Kamikaze took off in Flip’s memory, the Elco launched so hard it almost flipped over! Kamikaze pedaled it back under control and took off down the line for a win. It was all down to Daddy Dave and he wasn’t going to disappoint. Dave’s Sonoma hooked off the line and it careened to the grass on the right. Daddy Dave pedaled it back in, gathered up the lost ground and was able to pull back ahead for a photo-finish win.
It was a good night for the 405 OKC crew. They proved themselves once again as having the fastest streetcars in the country and they got to trek home with heavier pockets. Check back in next week to see how things on The List are going to shake up? Are the Elco and BoostedGT going to make their way on past Varley and his Gold Car? Can Doc and his new engine hook and gather up a win or will he keep getting knocked down The List? Wait and see…

For those of you who missed it, last night was one of the most exciting Street Outlaws episodes yet! Besides a little Farmtruck and AZN fishing in the Dung Beetle and goats let loose in Big Chief’s office (yes, real goats), the episode was all about shaking up The List.
Last season we saw Doc install a brand new giant motor while keeping it a secret from fellow racers and friend, Monza. When Doc tried to bury the hatchet with Monza he agreed to race for the 3 spot only if the 2 spot was ready to race, whether it was Daddy Dave or Murder Nova. New Race Master, Farmtruck was tired of having a stagnant list so he decided to shake it up a little further. With all cars in working order Daddy Dave and Murder Nova were scheduled to race, the winner between Monza and Doc would race the loser, and Big Chief would have to race the loser between Monza and Doc. It was going to be a top 5 Street Outlaws shake-up on top of who ever wanted to race in the bottom 5.
Varley made a few tweaks to the Gold Car and called out Dustin and his Camaro, Catfish. Dustin’s trans brake didn’t hold, he jumped the light and therefore lost on a technicality. Varley was then quick to call out Andrade Jr. and The Cutty. The Gold Car never hooked, spun its tires half way down the track and The Cutty “g-body shuffled” past the finish line with a few car lengths between them.
It was then on to the top 5 shake-up. First off was Doc and Monza. Doc’s giant motor has led to a few chassis problems and he hasn’t been able to get all of the power to the road. Monza won easily as Doc spun his tires and swerved all over the lane. Daddy Dave and Murder Nova then raced for the 1 spot and although both cars performed well, Murder Nova’s twin turbo setup wasn’t enough to take down Daddy Dave’s Sonoma. While Monza prepped his car to race the notorious Murder Nova, Doc and Big Chief lined up. Again, Doc’s car couldn’t hook and Big Chief’s The Crow took off down the line.
It was time to see how Monza’s Sinister Split Bumper would hold up against Murder Nova. Monza decided to let Murder Nova sweat while he enjoyed a smoke break before bumping up to the line. Was Murder Nova going to hold the 2 spot and remain within attack range of Daddy Dave for next weekend, or was Monza going to shake things up a bit? Right off the light it was a good race but as soon as Monza’s Sinister Split Bumper hit high gear it took off and there was no catching up for Murder Nova.
Since the start of Street Outlaws we haven’t seen a shake-up like this. There have been a lot of people rooting to see Big Chief race up the list, but they didn’t expect to see him and Murder Nova have to face-off so soon. Will Daddy Dave be able to hold the title, will Murder Nova make his way back up to reclaim the crown or will there be a new #1? Stay tuned for the next episodes of Street Outlaws and see if we can shake-up The List even further!

Last night’s season premier of Street Outlaws was filled with exciting announcements and a huge List shake-up! For those of you who missed it, Tina Pierce is with child and no longer can compete on The List. We all wish her the best! With Tina being gone, the 10 spot opened up and Big Chief decided to host another Round Robin. New driver, Dustin Bowen pulled in the win in his ’99 Camaro big block Chevy engine. After an intense fight between Varley and his son Tony (driver of the Gold Car) Varley was forced to switch drivers and get his son Shelby behind the wheel. The List rules state that if a team changes drivers or cars they must drop off the list and start back from the bottom. With no viable options left, Varley decided to abstain from racing that night and use the upcoming week for testing. Dustin was happy to automatically take the 9-spot but sure wasn’t ready for who he had to race next.
Last season we were introduced to Big Chief’s newly built Pontiac Lemans better known as The Crow, but had yet to see it make a pass at The List. Big Chief brought The Crow to last night’s race ready to haul ass, but had to make a big change first. In order to eliminate any drama that might have occurred between him and his new opponents, he stepped down as Race master. To fill his shoes, Big Chief volunteered the most trustworthy person he could think of that was currently off the list, Farmtruck. With the OKC politics out of the way Big Chief was ready to make his run towards the top and quickly blew up The List from spot 10 to 5. In the process he knocked Derek, Chuck, Andrade Jr, and Dustin all down one notch. Will he make it to #1? Is Big Chief willing to race his best friend and partner, Murder Nova to get there? We’ll see…
