Street Outlaws star Ryan Martin is one of the top stars on the show. On Monday, the Discovery Channel showed Martin experiencing problems during a pass against Bobby Ducote.
The Mississippi native was able to get the win. He claimed the top spot on Street Outlaws America’s List that was filmed near La Villa, Texas.
On Tuesday, Martin’s team released a video of an in-car clip from when he experienced an intake manifold backfire. This happened during the Street Outlaws No Prep Kings points race at Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia.
“Huge fireball @racevmp,” Fireball Camaro said in an Instagram post. “We can’t keep nothin’ nice.”
In the video, as Martin was racing against Adam Jennings, you can see a fire ball as things are flying inside the car. He eventually got the car under control.
As Martin gets out of the car, he says it’s on fire. Then, the Virginia Motorsports Park safety team rushes to his aid to put the fire out.
Due to the damage to his car, Martin — the two-time Street Outlaws No Prep Kings Champion — was not able to continue in the race. He was not able to race Justin Swanstrom — who drew his chip in the chip draw — so the Florida native received the bye.
Pilgrim Studios should have more video footage of the race and aftermath. The fifth season of Street Outlaws No Prep Kings will debut later this year on the Discovery Channel.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved.
