Fans have been wanting Ellington and Justin “Big Chief” Shearer to compete in the series since almost the beginning. However, Big Chief didn’t join the series until race three this year.

“We’re gonna hit the last, final NPK (No Prep Kings) of the season in Ennis next weekend,” Ellington said. “We’re gonna go down there, race our way in, and see where we stack up against those guys.”

Ellington also explained why he hasn’t transitioned to the No Prep series. Often, without the tracks being prepped, the tracks are very sketchy and lead to accidents.

“We’ve never been against NPK,” Ellington explained. “We just haven’t done it. The schedules… Hands down, those guys that do the street stuff that we do, and every other weekend they swap their cars and go race No Prep Kings. That’s a lot. I can’t imagine doing it the way those guys are doing it. And they’re fast on the street and on the track. So, we’re going to see… We haven’t had the best season on the street, so we’re gonna give it a shot at the track and see if we can go fast. So we’ll do the race-our-way-into-it and see how we stack up against all those guys.”
