Mike Murillo has been winning championships for as long as I can remember, and last night at the season finale of No Prep Kings’ second season, he added yet another world championship to his resume.
All Murillo needed in order to wrap up the championship for the second season of the Street Outlaws spinoff was take the win at the Ennis, TX event. Murillo raced his way to the finals, where he ran into a relatively new ride in the no prep game, the twin turbo Dodge Challenger Hellcat campaigned by Jack French and the Bruder Brothers. The Challenger, known as Vixen, has been showing a lot potential as Nick and Rich Bruder get a handle on the no prep world. That is, after all, a drastic departure from the world of X275 where the Bruders are accustomed to stellar track preparation.
Murillo knew that the Bruders and French might be new to the no prep game but that they’ve always managed to win no matter what they do, so he clearly didn’t take them lightly when it came time to go head to head with Vixen. Murillo loaded a “Get it done!” tune in his beloved Mustang, known to the world as Lafawnduh, and went to war.
Both cars laid down some fresh rubber on the unprepped Texas Motorplex surface and lined up in the beams. As soon as the green lights on the tree flashed, they left as one, but they didn’t stay that way for long. Murillo relied on his advantage in experience in the no prep world to know where and when he could bring in the power, and he sent it all to the rear wheels as early as possible. Sure, there’s a calculated risk in turning up the wick so early in the run, but with the championship on the line, Mike knew the payoff would be worth the gamble.
As the cars streaked toward the finish line, you can see Murillo put a gap on Vixen and get to the finish line first to win the event and the season title.
Mike Murillo wins the event and the Series Championship!!!! #teamtexas #npk
