Street Outlaws driver James “Reaper” Goad says that he may not be able to compete at the rest of the Street Outlaws No Prep Kings tour. He said that he has nearly burnt through a $50,000 budget for the tour.

While Reaper has not appeared in the first two invitational events, he has been on the property. Goad is one of the creators of the No Prep Kings tour.

He said that his wife Stacey has a plan to raise money to get Goad back on track. However, right now, he does not know what the plan is.

“Stacye has some plan,” he said. “I asked her what that is — you said I could do it — just let me do it. I’m not going to get involved unless it is [with] a company with sponsorships. We don’t take money from fans. Period unless they get something in return. That’s why I wouldn’t do a GoFundMe. I’m not going to do that ever. If I have to do that to race this series, I won’t f**king do it. We’ll see what she comes up with.”

Goad said that it costs approx. $15,000 per race for him to compete in the series. However, he has experienced numerous issues on the trip to Florida and then again in Virginia.

He crashed the car in Florida. During testing, he admitted to pushing the car too far, which caused him to crash into the wall.

This caused Goad and others to rush to get the car ready for the season-opening NPK event at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida.

He then experienced problems with his toter home and RV leaving the first two NPK events.[0]=AZXjm8uMBLbxav13aATKTJDA_NKDhzkg6pfzbKbU3krwpyPWY_vM2Xw7UI7XxkPRtOiC_eluUxXFPbs0_3WBy_j8QBeBfc5aQyC9HsDT2g0LEEo12ws0mabdp6lrSuqMNBPTml8vI6-nwV06IvwWv2MEmunfPpK_K8gaNFJfCnACcw&__tn__=%2CO%2CP-R
