Series Joins Motor Wednesday Line-Up on Wednesday, March 7 at 9pm ET/PT
(New York) - The nation's most thrilling and dangerous races are speeding into Discovery's Motor Wednesday lineup in the all-new series STREET OUTLAWS: NO PREP KINGS. Each week, Outlaws veteran "Chuck" will serve as race master in a new city and on a new "no prep" track, where 32 of the biggest names in no prep racing - including STREET OUTLAWS favorites, as well as newcomers - will duke it out to become the ultimate "no prep winner" and receive a $40,000 first place purse. With more than $320,000 up for grabs across eight episodes, the stakes are high and the risks are even higher, as local crowds flock to each race to see which all-star STREET OUTLAWS will show up, and who will win it all. A sneak peak of STREET OUTLAWS: NO PREP KINGS airs Tuesday, February 27 at 10pm ET/PT and all-new episodes continue on Wednesday, March 7 at 9pm ET/PT.
In the world of street racing, "no prep" racing is one of the "baddest" and dirtiest challenges in the game. Unlike traditional street racing, no prep racers drive on tracks that have not been primed with traction compounds - which helps bond tire rubber to the concrete surface. The rules are simple, and it's every man for himself in each wild and dangerous race.
STREET OUTLAWS: NO PREP KINGS summons all-star racers from all over the Outlaw family - including OKC's Ryan Martin, Chuck Seitsinger, Doc, Dominator and Reaper, along with New Orleans' Kye Kelley, Scott Taylor and Jerry Bird - and also features other no prep superstars, including Birdman, Swamp Thing and Megalodon. Each episode boasts a new matchup in a different U.S. city, where massive crowds gather to cheer on their favorite STREET OUTLAWS contender. The OKC crew will lay it all on the line and test their skills on these unfamiliar tracks - but can they protect their winning legacy?
Viewers will also be able to catch all-new episodes, along with other seasons of STREET OUTLAWS, on the Discovery GO app - free with their paid TV subscription.
STREET OUTLAWS: NO PREP KINGS is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group, with Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis serving as executive producers. For Discovery, Craig Coffman and Todd Lefkowitz are executive producers, and Lindsay Malinchak is coordinating producer.
