The Street Outlaws No Prep Kings had to fight weather all weekend at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. Then, when there was a clearing in the weather, there were huge upsets in the Invitational.

These happened in the second round at the facility near Amish Country. After defeating Mike Murillo in the first round, Tony McKinney had a second-round match-up with Kye Kelley.

Unfortunately for Swanstrom, he was not able to compete in the Invitational following an accident on Friday night. Swanstrom had a fire mid-way through his race before getting hit by “Super Dave” Adkins near the finish line.

This totaled Prenup, as the car is currently in Florida being rebuilt. It is not clear when the car will be back on tour.

Then, after James “Birdman” Finney took out Shawn Wilhoit, Brandon James took out the two-time champion Ryan Martin. James gapped Martin.

On Friday, Martin nearly hit the wall during The Great 8. He had a challenging weekend.

Martin has been eliminated early in the past two events. He won the first race of the season at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida.

However, it was a non-points race. He defeated Lizzy Musi in the final round.

This was Martin’s first event back after having an intake manifold backfire at Virginia Motorsports Park. Martin received his car back just days before the Maple Grove Raceway event.
