According to several racers, who have appeared on the Street Outlaws show, the Discovery Channel was taping at least two days prior to their big Tuesday night show at Bristol Dragway in Bristol, Tenn. The company reportedly paid $25,000 to the facility for the 405 to test.

While the 405 were testing at the track, no other drivers were allowed to watch them.

The episode that went until 3 am EST is expected to air at a later date during the Street Outlaws featuring the Oklahoma City crew. Justin “Big Chief” Shearer defeated Jerry Bird in The Probe in the final round and received $65,000 for the win.

While we do not know if it was rigged, we know that Big Chief is difficult to beat. It would be difficult for The Discovery Channel to have an honest race if it was rigged.

“Proof that Chief and Shawn [Ellington aka Murder Nova] are scared of a fair race,” the source said.

David Bird Jones was one of the racers, who was not allowed to watch the testing. The Street Outlaws were at the facility as far back as last Thursday.

“Good thing everyone knows it’s rigged,” a person named Kris left a comment on The Capital Sports Report. “The 405 was the only people allowed to test and tune. But you say what you need to make your money buddy!”
