No Prep Kings Season 5 Ratings Dropped Because of A Street Outlaws Legend Retirement?!

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

Street Outlaws is one of those shows that always brings us more action than we can ask for. Simply put, the idea of taking high-powered race cars and throwing them on the street to have competitive racers going head-to-head is enough to really keep us glued to our screens. Beyond that, the show also digs into the lives of these competitors and what exactly it means to dedicate themselves to racing on such a high level. The long story short is that it isn’t as simple as hopping behind the wheel of a car and mashing a gas pedal. The result is something that has drawn the attention of fans over a ton of seasons and several different spinoffs shows as well.

No Prep Kings is the newest series in the Street Outlaws franchise. No Prep means that nothing has been done to the track to help the drivers out. These roads are rough and untested. One of the biggest changes that we saw in the 2022 season of the No Prep Kings Championship, must have been the change from Team Attack to The Great 8 series.

In case you missed the concept during last year, the top 8 drivers in points, race against each other on Friday for a cash prize as well as some points towards the championship. While the points and the cash are a great incentive, the real advantage that the Great 8 racers get against the competition is the additional few runs on the track that gets them more and more data that they can use in the regular No Prep event that follows the Great 8 competition.

Some might argue that the ratings are not as important as the level of excitement that the No Prep Kings Championship brings to the fans and that is all good and well, apart from the fact that the producers of these shows rely on the viewership numbers in order to keep the show going.

Lucky for the real fans of the No Prep Kings Championship like us, the numbers are not as bad as some might fear, and the following announcement that one of the street racing legends retiring his car is not caused by these numbers.

So, who is the driver that has decided to make some big changes?

Well, as always, we will let Sim explain it all to us so play the video and find out more.
