DISCOVERY’S STREET OUTLAWS RETURNS FOR AN ALL NEW SEASON MONDAY, APRIL 25 AT 9PM ET/PT
Oklahoma City’s elite team of street racers, the 405, is back and on the hunt for redemption, with new racers and new rules, when STREET OUTLAWS returns to Discovery Channel’s Motor Mondays on Monday, April 25th at 9pm ET/PT. STREET OUTLAWS is Monday night’s #1 cable series for men (M25-54, M18-49, M18-34; excl. sports). Last season was the series’ most-watched (P2+) and highest-rated ever.
The 405 – which consists of OKC’s top 10 “List” of street racers – failed to take home the prize last season at the biggest Cash Days race event yet. Now, the team sets out to reclaim its title as the fastest and most revered group of racers in the country. To take the List to the next level, 405 front man Big Chief introduces the “Shark Pool” – hungry, serious racers in OKC who show up weekly to challenge the team’s #10 spot, keeping everyone on their toes. Added to the Shark Pool are some familiar faces – Farmtruck and AZN, Jackie Knox, Daddy Dave, and Tina Pierce.
With a new and improved List, the 405 is ready to take on eminent new street racers. Last season, Discovery.com offered viewers the "Voice Your Choice" challenge. With over 20,000 votes, the OKC boys must now prepare for a head-to-head matchup with the winner, Detroit, and its leader, Brian ‘Chucky’ Davis. Detroit promises an intense showdown with close races, big bets and heated fights. The 405 will also face its biggest challenge yet as the most catastrophic event in STREET OUTLAWS history shakes the List from top to bottom.
STREET OUTLAWS is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group; Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis are executive producers. For Discovery, Craig Coffman is executive producer and Todd Lefkowitz is coordinating producer.
