i know that ... but its just not what i consider a true street car ... just my opinion

Gotcha, Farm Truck and Big Chief's Chevy are about as close as they come to "street" cars.

Yeah an old guy Ron Diggs at my work used to run with them back in the day... He said the shows/ ranking is legit but they race by the old airport out in el Reno "the whole find a street and race illegally thing is for the show" if you notice it's the same strip in both shows so far.. But never the less it's an awesome show!!

Yeah, as soon as I saw the huge lights I knew it was a staged "street race." Still can't deny those cars are legit.

Anything that can trap 200 is ridiculous!

Not the same air strip.
The first was ElReno, the second was Pauls Valley--later you will see them race on a street in El Reno that the city closed for the show. It's the same street that is raced on for small town days or whatever it's called.
The races aren't staged, the film crew does make arrangements to place lights and a controlled strip so you can see who wins. Search BigRob Entertainment on YouTube. Same guys racing without the lights and on city streets holding up traffic.

Because of the huge liability, the production company made each of the cars pass a safety tech inspection. Chucks white "death trap" actually failed because his safety harness was out of date and needs to be re-certified--he almost missed the races you saw last week because of that. That's why u also see them wearing fire suites and helmets.

Listen to what is said at the beginning of the show-- okc has the fastest street RACED cars in the nation. Meaning that these cars aren't running on a prepped track. Most of them are not street cars but race cars with tags. Having a tag is the difference between getting your car impounded or loading back up on the trailer with a pocket full of traffic tickets.
