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!
