Street Outlaws Legendary 405 Battle - Murder Nova vs Doc Street Beast!!!

Updated: Jun 10, 2023

Street racing is an adrenaline-fueled sport that has gained immense popularity over the years. The excitement and thrill of watching cars race down the street at breakneck speeds is something that attracts a lot of people. One of the most popular shows in the street racing world is Street Outlaws, and one of the most epic matchups in the show is between the Murder Nova and the Doc Street Beast.

The Murder Nova, driven by Shawn Ellington, has become one of the most iconic cars on the show. Its unique design and powerful engine make it a force to be reckoned with on the streets. On the other hand, James "Doc" Love's Street Beast is also a fan favorite, with its impressive horsepower and lightning-fast speed.

The matchup between the two cars is a difficult one for Doc's Street Beast, as the Murder Nova can be a handful to deal with. However, despite being one of the last few nitrous cars that are competitive in no prep, the Street Beast has held its own against some of the toughest competitors on the show.

One of the main reasons why the Murder Nova is so difficult to beat is its power. Shawn Ellington's 1969 Nova is one of the most well-known cars in the country that is capable of producing up to 4000 horsepower. This kind of power can make the car incredibly difficult to handle, and it takes a skilled driver to keep it under control. The Street Beast, on the other hand, is powered by a 959 cubic inch engine that can produce up to 4500 horsepower. While this may seem like a significant power disadvantage, Doc has proven time and time again that he can compete with some of the fastest cars on the show.

Despite the Murder Nova's power advantage, Doc has been able to hold his own in races against the car. In one memorable race, Doc and Shawn went head to head, with the Street Beast taking the win. The race was incredibly close, with both drivers pushing their cars to the limit, but ultimately, Doc's skill behind the wheel gave him the edge.

Be sure to watch this legendary battle as the renowned Murder Nova lines up beside Doc, and they engage in a familiar duel, as two buddies from the same locality, determined to assist each other in any possible way while simultaneously refusing to concede on the race track once the signal lights up.
