American Outlaws at Texas Motorplex

Well the sun was setting over Texas Motorplex in Ennis yesterday after about 5 hours of testing and the boys of American Outlaws Live were still going strong.  
 
There are drag racers by invitation only for some of the Biggest Money Payouts. Some of the biggest, baddest cars in North America including a bunch of the Discovery channels Street Outlaws folks. We were able to meet and talk to a few of those guys. Justin “Chief” Shearer in his Crowmod hooked it up on both test and he was really fast. Murder Nova, John Doe, Jerry Bird, David Bird Jones, Mike Murillio, Lux, Monza, Birdman, Reaper, Vega. I am sure I missed someone and I apologize. There was too much going on all over the place.
 
I was most impressed by Jerry Bird from the New Orleans group. He is really down to earth and super cool. He does tell it like it is and said “I do like to fight” so I guess they did well by picking him for the show to bring a little drama. While discussing the show he also said “I tell it like it is and some people just don’t like it”. Really a treat to meet and talk to Jerry.
 
Watch out for “Stinky Pinky” a group down from Cincinnati Ohio looking to take the gold home. Met and talked to Ralph one of rookies of the racing team as he called himself but they are excited and think they can be consistent and compete with the big boys. I can tell you that standing close to that car at take off you could feel the power and he ran it on a string and it was stinking fast.
 
Also in the running will be Steve Wiley from Burleson in his blown Hemi “Grim Reaper” big tire Corvette who was the winner of the $50,000 in San Antonio Raceway’s Bounty Hunters No-Prep Race in March.
 
Gates open for general admission at 1:00 Pm for a full day of racing and events. Including Farmtruck and AZN taking on a high powered Jet dragster tonight. Should be exciting to see what Farmtruck can do. He had a really good test pass yesterday.
 
Razin Kane Monster Trucks will also be performing today and tomorrow.
 
$130,000 dollar payout so don’t miss the action some great weather for racing. More photo’s will be coming in the next few days as time allows on Infraredmag.com so go by and like our page if you get a minute.
