Street Outlaws driver Chuck Seitsinger said that he got a phone call from his kids that would eventually lead him to jail sentence this year. As we reported on April 1st, Seitsinger was sent to jail.
He was sticking up for his beloved children when things eventually took a turn this year.
“Long story short, they needed help and I was in the hospital with COVID,” Seitsinger said in a video called Chuck’s Out of Jail Judges and Grudges. “The kids were with me all summer. I got COVID really bad and got sent to the hospital in ICU. Their mother made them go home. They had problems over there. Things happened and I got a call. Being in ICU, I wasn’t going to wipe anybody’s a** or anything.

“Here we are a year and a half later, we were fixing to test the car and I got a misdemeanor charge filed on me. I was supposed to go into court that morning and sign papers for a no contest for the misdemeanor plea. We had agreed with the DA (District Attorney), but for whatever reason, the judge thought I needed a harder sentence and gave me a year of probation. Then, he sentenced me to 60 days in jail. That’s when life changed in a matter of seconds.”
He said that he was getting ready to test in Tulsa, Oklahoma with his team when he went to jail. Seitsinger said he had mere seconds to text people before he went to jail.
As we reported, he got out of jail and went to Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia. He competed in the second Street Outlaws No Prep Kings event.
