Daddy Dave's decision to part ways with Goliath has been a topic of much speculation and anticipation among fans. The Chevy 2, originally built back in 2015 - 2016, has been a staple in the street racing scene, having undergone numerous transformations throughout the years. From big-block Chevy setups with nitrous to the power of ProCharger, twin turbos, and the formidable ProCharger Prime Hemi, Goliath has proved its adaptability and competitiveness.

Goliath's success was undeniable, reaching the number one spot on the Top 10 list of the "405" show and making its presence felt in the No Prep Kings series. This powerful machine has consistently delivered incredible performances, pushing the envelope with 370s in terms of speed.

The decision to sell Goliath was not taken lightly. The car had become a part of Daddy Dave's identity and a fan-favorite. As expected, the news of Goliath's sale stirred emotions among fans who expressed their sense of loss for this legendary machine.


Speculation has arisen regarding the reasons behind the sale. Some believe that running in the NPK series is an expensive endeavor, with high costs associated with maintaining and racing at that level. In addition to this, Daddy Dave recently acquired a new Audi, a vehicle that reportedly cost more than $300,000. It's not hard to deduce that the sale of Goliath might have provided the financial flexibility for this new venture.

The burning question on many fans' minds is, "Will Daddy Dave build a Goliath 3.0 NPK car?" While Goliath's departure marks the end of an era, Daddy Dave's dedication to the sport and his passion for racing remain unwavering. The possibility of a Goliath 3.0 is certainly a tantalizing prospect, and it's something that fans are eager to witness. A new incarnation of Goliath, even more powerful and faster, could take the racing world by storm once again!


For some time now, Daddy Dave had shared about selling Goliath to a racing enthusiast in Brazil. This tantalizing prospect has now become a reality. However, before Goliath takes on a new adventure in Brazil, fans will have the chance to witness it in action one last time in the United States. The stage for this emotional farewell is set at the Street Outlaws No Prep Kings Season 6 finale at the Texas Motorplex.

What makes this event even more special is that the new owner, who flew in from Brazil, will be behind the wheel for the first time at this event. It's a fitting farewell for Goliath on American soil. As for the race class, it's likely that Goliath will compete in the small tire category, as that's how it's been set up lately. It's uncertain whether the car will switch to big tires for racing in Brazil, but one thing is clear: Brazil has a vibrant racing scene, and Goliath is sure to find a welcoming home there.

For those who wonder about Goliath's future in Brazil, one can't help but recall the previous visit of Daddy Dave and Shawn to the country. Their experiences there were undoubtedly memorable, forging connections with passionate racing enthusiasts. It's highly likely that one of these connections led to the acquisition of Goliath, ensuring that it's going to a loving home in Brazil.

As for Goliath's mechanics, it's still unclear whether it retains its ProCharger Prime Hemi combination. Daddy Dave had offered the car for sale a few months ago, so there's a possibility that the motor has been replaced. However, considering that Goliath will race this weekend, it must still be equipped with a powerful engine. Its legacy in the Street Outlaw world and NPK series is unquestionable, and parting with such a renowned vehicle will undoubtedly be bittersweet for Daddy Dave.


The decision to part with Goliath is undoubtedly a sentimental one, given its remarkable legacy in the Street Outlaw world. However, Daddy Dave's latest addition, the new Audi, promises a new chapter in his racing journey. As fans eagerly await the Season 6 finale of No Prep Kings, they will be treated to the emotional farewell of an icon, Goliath, in the United States. It's the end of an era, but in the world of street racing, every ending is just the beginning of a new adventure. Whether it's a Goliath 3.0 or a new chapter entirely, Daddy Dave's journey continues to captivate and inspire fans across the globe.
