Team NOLA driver Jerry Bird has to wait to capture his first Street Outlaws No Prep Kings win. He was defeated by Robin Roberts on Friday at New England Dragway and Motorsports Park in Epping, New Hampshire.

This final round had to be moved to New Hampshire after Pilgrim Studios called racing late Sunday at Maple Grove Raceway. After the rain on Friday and Saturday in Mohnton, Pennsylvania, the crew got through a lot of racing on Sunday near Amish Country.
