And with this, he has parted ways with the show to remain as real to the street as possible.
“I’m a street racer,” he said in a video on “The Future of Big Chief on Street Outlaws” on YouTube. I’ve been a street racer. Everyone has always told me to not give up on what has made you who you are now. Being a dumb street racer is what got you here. But that seems like that’s not going to cut it anymore. The bottom line is that I can’t stand up there and defend rules and decisions that I had no part of. And don’t agree with it, especially with a group of guys, who take it as seriously as we do. That’s the other flip side of the coin. While I know the rules and decisions that I am defending may not be my own and may not agree with them, it’s for a bigger cause, which is the TV show. We want to make sure that we have a good show.

“If I say this sucks and it’s not on me, it’s on them, then what’s the point at that point? The part of being the race master that I took pride in was handling my sh*t. I don’t think that I can stand up there and defend that anymore. Those guys take it seriously. While they may know that this did not come from me, everything has been twisted up so much. Some of them believe that this is my issue. It’s affected how we do everything. At some point in your life, you may realize that money, fame, and class, aren’t worth the time that you lose doing it. You don’t want to lose that part of yourself.”
While Big Chief may not appear on future episodes of Street Outlaws right now, the two sides have time to resolve their differences. Pilgrim Studios — which films the show for the Discovery Channel — will not film another OG 405 show until July.
