Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you’ve likely seen, heard or read about Street Outlaw’s new spin-off series, No Prep Kings. What started with the massive no prep events in Bristol and Memphis has become so popular that Discovery Channel gave the series of on-track events its own show. We’ve seen many of the stars of both Street Outlaws shows join the heavy hitters from the no prep world on tracks all across the country to throw down and take home a stack of cash and bragging rights. The video below caught the latest action at Orangeburg Raceway in South Carolina, where the winner’s paycheck was a whopping $40,000!
This event brought out two of the best looking hotrods in all of drag racing, but there is much more to these two that looking good. Drag Week legend and Street Outlaws part-timer Jeff Lutz just got his gorgeous 1957 Chevrolet repainted after a little run in with the wall in Bristol earlier this year. In the other lane, Brent Austin’s great looking first gen Camaro known as Megalodon. Either of these cars would turn heads at any car show, but when you throw them on the track, they prove they’re not just pretty faces.
Lutz’ Chevy is powered by a twin turbo big block Chevy while Austin’s Camaro relies on a ProCharged HEMI to for power. Both of them make a ton of power, but as we all know, in the no prep world, all the power in the world is useless if you can’t hook it. Neither of these guys seem to have a problem with that, though, as you can see in this clip from National No Prep Racing Association.
In the left Lane, Megalodon leaves hard and despite some minor tirespin, manages to stay out in front of Lutz, who laid down a great looking run in the right lane.
