Discovery’s “Street Outlaws” Races Back for An All New Season Monday, October 31 at 9PM ET
(New York, New York) – Oklahoma City’s most competitive street racers are hitting the concrete faster than ever when STREET OUTLAWS returns to Discovery Channel on Monday, October 31 at 9 PM ET/PT.
The streets are swarming with determined racers who will stop at nothing to claim the top spot on OKC’s top 10 “List” of street racers. However, the level of competition intensifies as the rules of the game change and some of the most experienced drivers, who are now racing new cars, must start from the bottom. It will be a sprint to see which veteran “405” driver can make it to #1 first.
Familiar faces are back at the starting line, but victory is far from arm’s reach. Farmtruck lines his truck up against anything and anyone – including a jet car, a monster truck and an actual jet – and for the first time in years, fights his way back onto the List. Chief, in his Crow-mod, and Daddy Dave, in his Goliath 2.0, battle it out at the bottom of the List, both hoping to claw their way to the top.
In order to compete with the pro-mods coming for the List, 405 drivers Doc and Monza worked together during the off-season to make their cars as light as possible, ultimately losing more than 1,000 pounds off their vehicles.
Brian “Chucky” Davis, of Detroit, also returns to the streets of the 405 with his new ride, but racers are nervous to line up against him after his crash with Chief earlier this year.
Finally, it’s every man for himself until teams of racers from New York, Detroit and California all gather in the 405 for a first-of-its-kind team race-off. Tensions run high as fierce rivals are forced to team up, and most will stop at nothing to walk away with the cash and glory.
STREET OUTLAWS is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group; Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis are executive producers. For Discovery, Craig Coffman is executive producer and Todd Lefkowitz is coordinating producer.
