Street Outlaws No Prep Kings competitor Jermaine “Jay” Boddie Jr. had a memorable first attempt on the Invitational. This episode will air at a later date on the Discovery Channel.
Boddie Jr. had to race his way into the event. Then, once he was in on the show, he defeated Ohio-based driver Tony McKinney in his backyard at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio.
The California native then drew Jim Howe and his new “Guardian” ride in the second round. Boddie was able to get the win.

His day came to an end in the third round. He drew star Lizzy Musi — who had just won the Great 8 over her fiancee Kye Kelley less than 24 hours earlier — before losing to the four-time event winner.
“Man, what a weekend,” Jay Boddie Jr. said in a Facebook post. “We got a hot rod baby! First off, [I] want to give a huge thank you to Elite HP for helping me to have all the right tools needed to compete on a high level. Secondly, Nick Bubba for coming on board the crew this year and just killing it. We went rounds and got faster every pass. Definitely turned some heads and Ohio’s fans showed love! It’s only up from here.”
Boddie’s father qualified for the filming at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire. However, in the first round, Boddie tagged the wall against Adam Jennings. He lost the round.

There was also an incident where the Boddie’s were involved in a fight with a starting line official.
It is not clear when Boddie’s Gucci will be back on the tour. However, Boddie Jr. is expected to be at the upcoming event at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
