Street Outlaws No Prep Kings star Justin Swanstrom had a miraculous recovery within four days last week to get back on track. The SwanGang and Cameron Johnson Race Cars in Florida worked around the clock to get Prenup back up and running.
Before arriving in New England Dragway last weekend in Epping, New Hampshire, he was involved in a bad accident just days earlier at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. He had a wreck during The Great 8 against “Super Dave” Adkins.
Swanstrom experienced a fire midway through his run. Then towards the finish line, Adkins lost control of his vehicle.
He then rear-ended Swanstrom. This caused both drivers to hold on as both cars bounced from one side of the track to the other.
Eventually, the two cars came to a rest. Prenup’s fire got worse, as the front end was on fire for some time before being put out by track personnel.
After Saturday’s rain out, Swanstrom and his team rushed back to Florida. After working from Sunday through Thursday, the team then rushed to New Hampshire to compete on the No Prep Kings tour.
“So many have asked or wondered what cost was to get prenup fixed,” Swanstrom said in a Facebook post. “I never beat around the bush. I just received the final bills and It was just shy of $75,000. I had many people help but I can guarantee I did not get any of the work for free as I’ve seen some say.
“I sold nova at beginning of the season as I knew I would need some kind of cash flow to keep up with NPK season 5. I get that the circumstances I was in are not normal but it does happen!”
