Street Outlaws No Prep Kings will not see Jerry Johnston this season. Team Monza will miss the entire season.
He said it was due to financial constraints.
“Well this is a post i am not looking forward to making,” Team Monza said in a Facebook post. “Due to some unfortunate circumstances Team Monza will not be doing NPK this year. This sucks, we finally got a car that would compete. I guess life happens. This is a heart breaker for me!! Sorry to all our fans but its out of our control. Just isnt in the budget this year.
“Seems we lost about 2/3 of our budget. We will take some time and figure out whats next for us. Thank you to our fans for always being there for us.”
Johnston was involved in a wreck last season. This caused him to miss part of the season before returning late in the campaign.
The Street Outlaws No Prep Kings season begins this weekend at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio. The season will begin on Friday with the first-ever NPK Draft.
Instead of being broken down into teams from cities like years past, this new season will have a new format. There will be eight teams with eight captains.
One team will be led by the “People’s Choice” captain. Right now, it will be either “Daddy Dave” Comstock or Lizzy Musi.
Musi announced before the season that she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer. Mike Murillo, the season 2 Champion, also announced that he had Stage 4 Lung Cancer.
The NPK Draft will break up the traditional teams. We previously reported that there will be two championships awarded this season.
One championship will go to an individual champion, who will win $100,000. Then the second championship would go to the team, who will split $200,000.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
