Ohio-based Street Outlaws No Prep Kings star “Disco Dean” Karns experienced a backfire with his new car on Friday. He was grudge racing Larry Larson at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky when the backfire happened.
It is not clear if Karns has his car fixed to compete in today’s Invitational. Season One No Prep Kings star James “Birdman” Finney drew Karns in the first round.
In a video posted late Friday, Karns showed that he suffered a broken crankshaft. He also showed a broken Screw Blower. He also showed a blown engine and a hole in the intake.

Each time, he threw money at the broken parts.
“It ain’t money except for work, time, and money,” Karns said in the clip. “Stinky Pinky No Prep Kings Season Next.”
If Karns could not compete today and Birdman received the bye run, we’re not sure when he will race again. The teams will be on the road for the next two weekends.
Next weekend, the tour will make the trek to Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota. Following the Brainerd race, the teams will then make the long haul down south to Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, Texas for the final race of the first part of the season.

“Hate it for ya buddy,” Fellow No Prep Kings driver Justin Swanstrom said in a comment. “You’ll get it back up and running and be back out stronger.”
