Street Outlaws driver Derek Travis – who is known for driving the Silver Unit – was involved in an accident this weekend. He was using a borrowed car when the crash occurred.
“Well, went for a ride yesterday,” Travis said on Facebook. “Thankful to walk away from it. Got some bruises and scraps, but all in all, not too bad. Thanks for all the kind words from everyone.
“Guess I owe someone a car. Bill Brown is a awesome friend/family. Sorry, I wrecked your new ride, but I’ll make it up to you.”

Travis did not say where the accident happened in his post. The car he was driving was nicknamed “The Resurrection.”
The car had extensive damage, according to the pictures.
“I’m not worried about the car,” Brown said in a reply to Travis’ post. “You came out OK and made it home to see your daughter. Car’s can be replaced, you can not my friend.”
Travis is the second Street Outlaws member that we know of that was involved in an accident in the past two weeks. James “Doc” Love destroyed his Street Beast in a bad wreck during filming for the Street Outlaws taping while in Nebraska.
Love said that he was fine despite being bruised.

“I am fine if you can call being yellow, black, blue, green, and a wonderful shade of purple from my neck to my calves,” Love said. “I am also still struggling with symptoms from a bad concussion. I was knocked out for 20-30 minutes and remember nothing about the crash, or even the race for that matter. I want to give a huge shout to my family, friends, and some fans for reaching out to me with prayers and support.”
