The OKC List season is up, but that doesn’t mean racing has to stop. It’s time for the most wicked Cash Days anyone has seen yet. Chief arranges for the top 5 of the 405’s list (plus Dominator) to enter and take on the other fastest drivers from the southeast. Just like The List, this Cash Days is the fastest yet. Unbeknownst to the Midwest Street Cars crew there’s one more driver that wants to enlist and it’s Mike Murillo who’s hired the crew to turn his track car into a lean-mean street-raced machine. His first race on the street he wants to be Cash Days. Chief and Murder Nova Shawn worry that they just gave Murillo a winning ticket with the modifications and tunings they made. It’s a $1,000 buy-in with a winner-take-all pot of $16,000.
On the other side of town, while everyone else is getting ready for Cash Days, Farmtruck has his own project he’s working on. AZN had recently played a prank on him and bought Farmtruck a mobility scooter or power chair (however you want to call it) Farmtruck decided to take it to his Mad Scientist friend and beef it up. He got it back and after a few races against AZN they decided to take it onto the open road and see how fast they could get it going. They clocked it at just over 40 mph. They decided they can get it even more powerful and to make a run at the world record with their new, “Power Scare.”
While Farmtruck works on improving Power Scare, our team of drivers booked it down to North Texas for Cash Days. The full list of drivers outside of the OKC crew is Ronnie Pace (driving 2 cars), David Eatman, Student Driver, Ky Kelly, Bobby “Hollywood” Treadwell, Whiteboy, Randy Thorne, Krazy Kelly and Mike Murillo.
First up was Ronnie Pace in his black Yenko vs. Dominator. Both cars left hard but Ronnie’s car didn’t have enough power behind it to out run Dominator. Next was Ky Kelly vs. “Hollywood” Bobby. There was no competition, Ky Kelly booked his pro-mod Camaro down the road and won by over a bus-length. 3rd race was Ronnie Pace in his green Yenko vs. David Eatman in a car he lovingly titles, “Your Mom.” David tried to tree Ronnie but instead jumped the light, sacrificing his spot to Ronnie.
The 4th race was another one of the OKC crew, Doc vs. Student Driver. Doc’s Street Beast has been making the perfect passes lately so he wasn’t worried. Doc was quick off the line and ended up winning by about 5 car lengths. Next up was Doc’s best bud Monza, vs. newcomer but highly decorated track racer, Mike Murillo. Neither driver was taking the other lightly. Monza backfired right out of the gate and a fireball blew out of the back of the hood, over the windshield, losing him the race before he could get past the 60ft line.
The last 3 of the races were the most important for the OKC crew. Murder Nova Shawn was up against Whiteboy who was a Cash Days veteran with a couple wins under his belt. The Murder Nova blew it’s tires off the road, wheelied and came down crooked. Before Shawn could gather things up, Whiteboy was off down the road. Next was Big Chief vs. Randy Thorne. Big Chief being the newly crowned leader of OKC’s List, has a reputation to keep and is basically the go-to guy to keep the title of the “Nation’s Fastest Street Raced Cars” in Oklahoma. Big Chief took off fast and straight, so things look good for him at the time being. Lastly is Daddy Dave vs. Krazy Kelly. If Big Chief ends up losing in the later rounds it would be up to Daddy Dave to carry OKC’s title so his load isn’t too light either. Daddy Dave took off and was ahead in the 1st 60ft but not by much. He maintained the lead but blew up his engine just as he crossed the finish line and taking the win. He may have won the 1st round, but now he has an engine to repair in 24 hours or else he forfeits his spot in the 2nd round.
We’ll see how it turns out next Monday.
