Street Outlaws: Fastest In America
PREMIERING JANUARY 20 ON DISCOVERY
(New York) – Eight of the fastest teams in America fight for a winner-takes-all purse of $100,000 – the highest payout in street racing history. Welcome to STREET OUTLAWS: FASTEST IN AMERICA, an all-new Discovery Channel series where the best of the best descend on Memphis for a shot to ultimately take on JJ Da Boss and the MSO—with the winner bringing home the big money prize and the prestige of being called the baddest on the streets.
High intensity, insane pressure, and extreme emotions rule in this ultimate Street Outlaws showdown, and only the best street racing team will make it to the finish line.
STREET OUTLAWS: FASTEST IN AMERICA premieres Monday, January 20 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. The series is produced by Pilgrim Media Group, a Lionsgate company.
Handpicked by JJ Da Boss, street racing bosses from South Carolina, St. Louis, Kentucky, Mississippi, Detroit, NOLA, Texas and the Northeast – each claiming to be king of the streets – have assembled their teams in Memphis for the chance to prove their racing chops once and for all. With both small and big tire cars, a mixed bag of racers including Texas’ Birdman, NOLA’s Kye Kelley, and Detroit’s Chucky Davis, STREET OUTLAWS: FASTEST IN AMERICA is the ultimate faceoff.
To prove they’re the fastest in America, these racers will quickly learn it’s not a matter of how fast your car goes or what’s under the hood – but how much they know about the street and its surface. Along the way, drivers rely on their street-hustle tactics and strategies to get under the skin of their rivals—talking trash to gain the mental advantage.
“Fancy cars don’t mean anything. You need to keep your head together in the street,” explains JJ Da Boss.
All the while, Team Memphis observes each team’s plan of attack and plots for their turn at the starting line. In a competition where you’re only as good as the rest of your team, the stakes have never been higher.
STREET OUTLAWS: FASTEST IN AMERICA is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group, with Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis serving as executive producers. For Discovery, Todd Lefkowitz and Gretchen Morning are executive producers, and Ethan Galvin is producer.
