Last year, we all remember the battle between the NHRA and Street Outlaws with one being all about street racing and the other in strong opposition. If you don’t remember it, in short, things got ugly pretty quick.

Since then, it seems like the two sides have let time heal all wounds and it might even be appropriate to say that the relationship has made a complete 180.

Recently, it’s been spun around the rumor mill over and over again that possibly Big Chief, the face of Street Outlaws, has been on his way to joining forces with “the man.”


So with all kinds of hearsay and rumors on various topics being spit out left and right, we convened at Speed Society HQ and got on FaceTime with Chief himself for a little friendly chat between himself and Speed Society’s Charlie, Morgan, Matt, and Mikey to iron out what’s fact and what’s crap. He really opened up to us with some juicy information.

To put it bluntly, if you even remotely consider yourself a Street Outlaws or Big Chief fan, you won’t want to miss what he has to say here.


Diving into everything from how the Crow has been converted to be safe for NHRA competition and how much it costs to do such a conversion to exactly what Chief is going to be doing in terms of street competition and what other goals are ahead on his bucket list, we’ve got you covered!

Dig your fangs deep into all of the information on what’s been going on with Chief and the Crowmod in the exclusive interview below that you’re most definitely not seeing anywhere else!

  1. Why are you always putting bearings in your motor?
