NHRA goes after Street Outlaws

I guess when you're ratings are tanking due to poor schedualing contracts with ESPN, you gotta go after the guys who's ratings are 4 times higher than yours.

NHRA sent these letters out to all NHRA licensed drivers involved with the Street Outlaws show as a threat to lose their NHRA licenses. That includes most of the fastest cars on Street Outlaws.

If you're a hard core street racer, what you need that license for anyways, LoL.

But, if you want to participate in sanctioned events, it might matter,.....

One things for sure, it will get Street Outlaws more fans in the long run. The only bad publicity is your obituary.

Re: NHRA goes after Street Outlaws

Sounds like a publicity stunt for the NHRA. Street Outlaws is hardly illegal street racing, it's all done on some private road the producers have blocked off. Do you really have big flood lights set up on some regular road somewhere? The only thing illegal is some of the test hits, and even those are obviously set up by the show.

This is the reason why I stopped watching this show after the first couple of episodes. It is so staged, its comical.

But, I can see where the NHRA is coming from, because most people are dumb. Most people see this show as actual "real" street racing. And that is sad and unfortunate.

^^this.

I watched a clip and noticed the lights and different cameras. I'm almost sure some of them (scenes) are probably scripted too. Pretty interesting to see as I've seen some of this float on facebook also.

Re: NHRA goes after Street Outlaws

Even if it is staged and the road closed off, I love to watch it. Those cars are pretty fuckin quick be it on a closed off street or on the track

It's definitely staged and regulated, no major network is gonna risk the lawsuits if a bystander got hurt. The cars are real and they are raced on streets,...

But if you like fast cars and headsup racing, its a fun show to watch. Just take it for what it is and don't over think it.

I get what you are saying, but why promote the show as real, illegal street racing? The only show more fake than this is Amish Mafia.

There are two sides of the street racing they do, what we see on TV and what they do outside of it. I read an interview with Justin (Big Chief) recently where he said they do all the stuff necessary to protect the show and those involved, but they still do street racing outside of that which is illegal for big money because the call outs are always coming in.

Here's the interview. It's a good read.

Re: NHRA goes after Street Outlaws

I still watch it and like it because the cars are cool, just like I watch Top Gear USA for the cars and shenanigans, obviously that's completely scripted as well.

I have noticed that the cars have gotten much faster on SO with all the money and sponsorship pouring in. Most of them now switched from nitrous to turbos. I'd like to see Shep pull out the 1G and have a run at the list.

Re: NHRA goes after Street Outlaws

There was a push on FB a while back to get The Red Demon (Boostin's 2G) on the show, we'll see if anything comes of that.

Re: NHRA goes after Street Outlaws

Seems like a person willing to talk enough shit to Farmtruck and AZN could get their dsm on the show. A guy that seemed like a total ass got on with a Supra a couple shows ago by posting on their fb. I'm going to try it if the show is still on the air when I get mine running...
