Street Outlaws is a long-running reality television series filmed in Oklahoma, the United States that provides an inside view at the American street racing world. The series premiered on Discovery Channel on te 10th of June 2013 and not only has it aired 13 seasons since then, but it has also become a successful franchise that has given rise to other spinoffs, the newest of which is Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings.
The first season of No Prep Kings premiered in February 2018, also on Discovery Channels. In it, the racers are taken to different unfamiliar tracks across the country and as the name implies, they are made to compete on rough and untested tracks that have not in any way been prepared for a race as opposed to racing on the streets like in the parent series. The races take place before a live audience and are later aired on Discovery in unscripted episodes.
Street Outlaws No Prep Kings: 5 Important Facts You Should Know
