Ryan Martin and The 405 Get Back to Basics with Small Tire Racing

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

Discovery Channel broadcasted the reality TV series Street Outlaws first back in 2013 and since then the show has gone to many extents to be as real as possible. It lays bare the world of American street racing wherein drivers, mechanics, and more, proudly put their skills to the test.

When it comes to changing the entire setup of racing, we all know that the producers are likely to follow the directions of the races and this time it appears that they have realized that the small tires races have such a big fan base and they would love to give them what they want.There is no doubt that the small tire cars and their drivers have tons of potential just like their big cousins and it seems that the Pilgrim production has a way to get the racers on their side and into the videos that have managed to get the racers we know now famous beyond their means.

In June of this year, it will mark an entire decade since the Street Outlaws made their debut on TV. Of course, the crew from the 405 had been racing long before the cameras started rolling. However, when they made their way to TV, the money really started to come in and things escalated incredibly quickly. Before we knew it, the simple builds on the show that could be replicated in garages across the country got more and more potent to the point where the 405 was sending high-dollar cars down the street.

Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this kind of action as a lot of people enjoy watching these incredibly powerful machines make their way down a questionable racing surface in the streets. However, the tides have turned just a little bit to the point where the crew might be devolving in terms of how fast their cars are going to go. Instead, as audiences yearn for a more relatable product, Street Outlaws has taken on a new yet familiar face as small tire builds are hitting the streets once again. In the new season of the OG Street Outlaws show, we’re going to be able to watch some new builds come forward and some familiar faces from back in the day rear their heads once again.

This time, we get to check in with that action from the viewpoint of top competitor, Ryan Martin. In this particular video from his vlog channel, Martin takes us along to the Meridian Cruise in OKC. He also takes us to Thunder Valley Raceway in his Chevrolet Camaro small tire car, “Champagne Pappi” to do a little bit of testing and dialing in. The last stop in the video takes us to the filming of the first episode of the new season of Street Outlaws.
