Default Street Outlaws New Season Premiers Tonight

Street Outlaws' new season premiers tonight at 10pm (EST) on Discovery

One of the lead characters (Big Chief, BrandX here) is one of our own. You will see his 7 second all Pontiac twin turbo GTO. Kick some Chevy butt.

I would rather watch paint dry than get them a platform to break the law.What kind of message does this show sell never watched it never will.

Polar, they were street racing for years before the show, they will street race after the show. I understand where you're coming from but your refusal to watch, or anyone's (everyone's) refusal to watch will just stop the show, not the racing. At least they race in off the beating places when they are racing. YOU DON'T SERIOUSLY THINK THEY ARE FILMING THE SHOW AND ACTUALLY STREET RACING DO YOU?? "Come on Man!!!"

I hear you I just don't like the message it sends to young people it glorifies this crap. I am seriously against this type of behavior by grown men.

I followed it for a while, I'll tape it, scroll though them, to see Big chief race and hopefully put the hurting on the Chevy and Fords. I was a big street racer late. 60's into early 70's. And Shut up some Chevy boys in 1984-1985. It was sweet. But these where 11 second cars. It was pretty safe back then. Real remote areas, no houses for miles. But 7-8 second cars on the street not my coup of tea. Not safe at least for me.

The thing I expected was some serious racing, maybe some 1/8 mile. Way to much BS for me. If it wasn't for the fact of supporting a Pontiac guy…trust me I wouldn't be tapering it.

For me it's about the cars. I'm sick of watching the NHRA "PROs" on the sports channels. I don't relate to any of that high dollar stuff.

It's entertainment, nothing on TV anymore, and hour show has a half-hour of commercials. I want to see some chicks racing in their panties.

I want to see that 70 GTO smoke all them boys, then we can say the fastest street car in the country is a Pontiac. LOL. Let's make Big chief a real celebrity and get his ass to one of the Pontiac events. Are you listening Norwalk promoters, i'll bet he'll fill the stands. Yeah that's what we need some more exhibition cars.

It's just entertainment. They aren't advocating breaking laws any more than just about any action, shoot em up movie. Does that mean you can't watch Dirty Harry or Death Wish movies? What about Die Hard? Any Rambo or Arnold movies. Lighten up and have some fun!

Dirty Harry shoots people, Rambo shoots people we are talking about cars that grown men race in the streets. It is filmed to look like this behavior is real life drama and it sends the wrong message to young people. Big different than the movies.. When someone is killed imitating these Outlaws who is responsible. I done talking about this it just pisses me off.
