Street Outlaws icon Justin “Big Chief” Shearer says that he was unpleasantly surprised when he went to film America’s List season 2. Shearer said that he went to La Villa, Texas with the others to take part in the show.
He said he went down there with an idea of ways to potentially make the show better. He said a lot of people do not like chase is a race and the cross-the-center line rule.
“Our plan was to go into the driver’s meeting and talk with everyone there to see what they thought,” he said in the future of Big Chief on Street Outlaws video on YouTube. “He said he wanted to see what the majority was here because it’s not like these cars are a mile apart like they used to be. A lot of these cars are on the same level now. The people that we were worried about not competing before they have the same equipment as everyone else now.

“I felt like some of the rules needed to be adjusted, especially listening to the fans. The fans have gripped about the same cars racing one another over and over, chase is a race and everyone is hiding. We had some notes that we wanted to discuss with the racers. We walked to see what they thought and come up with something that worked for everyone. Things change. The world is not always what you think it’s going to be tomorrow.”
He said that the idea was popped as soon as they got there. He said that they let him know that they were against his idea and wanted to continue with the previous rules that were in place.
