Big Chief wins Bristol Street Outlaws special

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Justin “Big Chief” Shearer is considered one of the best street racers in the country. The outspoken leader of the 405 provided that fact early Wednesday morning at Bristol Dragway in Bristol, Tenn.

Big Chief defeated Jerry Bird in The Probe in the final round in the Discovery Channel taping that will air in the early part of 2018. Shearer had the race won at the light, as Bird slept at the light before getting things together.

It was Street Outlaws Oklahoma City vs. Street Outlaws New Orleans in the final. The Probe is on the Street Outlaws New Orleans list.

Big Chief won the 32 car field event that lasted well into the early morning hours. There’s no official date for this episode at this time, but it could potentially be in Season 11 since much of Season 10 is already filmed.

There were reportedly 22,000 people at this free event except for $10 for parking. It’s the biggest event ever at Bristol Dragway, even bigger than their NHRA events in June.

“Street Outlaws has a passionate fan base and some of the most entertaining characters on television today,” said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager of Bristol Dragway when the announcement was made on August 17th. “We can’t wait to see what antics they get into as they race down Thunder Valley. We hope all of our neighbors in the region will join us as this popular show arrives in Bristol.”

    This was without a doubt the best show I have seen at Bristol! The drives would talk with you like you were a person not like the pro racers that act like they are better than you are. I couldn’t believe it when I watched Daddy Dave interacting with tbe small kids, He was great with all of them!!! Again thanks to all the racers for the Great preformance and hoping you all will come back to Bristol again.
