Street Outlaws Daddy Dave vs Apocalypse For $5000 @ Lights Out 8!

Posted by: Jeremy Patterson on 11/17/2021

Street Outlaws star Daddy Dave headed to Lights Out 8 with a stack of cash in his pocket for this grudge race with Outlaw Drag Radial competitor Justin “Little Country” Swanstrom.

Lining up in the first Round of qualifying, the grudge race had the crowd fired up, and they delivered an amazing race that lived up to the hype that had been building for weeks leading up to the event. While many believed this was a walk in the park for Swanstrom, who has a full season under his belt racing his current combination compared to Dave only running his new ProCharged setup for a few months, Dave quickly established that he came to play ball with the big boys by laying down some 4.20’s in testing.

When it came time to step up, Dave laid down a class-leading 4.21 next to Swanstrom’s 4.25 elapsed time. However, the cash would go to Little Country after Dave turned on the dreaded redlight, nullifying his quicker ET and handing the win to Swanstrom. Despite losing the cash, Daddy Dave definitely made it known he was more than up to the challenge of taking on the Outlaw Drag Radial class and one of the classes badasses.
