Kayla Morton

You might recognize Kayla Morton and her 2005 Ford Mustang from the OKC List, but she’s moved down to Texas and her loyalties have realigned. She’s driving the Hot Mess Express with a pro-charged big block Ford engine.


Boosted is pulling double-duty this year, assisting Chuck Seitsinger as race master and racing in his big tire Mustang. Boosted is a Texas native who moved to OKC to race on the Street Outlaws List, but last season he was kicked off for missing a few race nights.

Mike Murillo

Mike Murillo returns from San Antonio with “Lafawnduh,” a 1993 Ford Mustang with a twin turbo big block under the hood. Murillo won last year’s No Prep Kings championship for Texas, and he’s got 3,000+HP that might claim it again.


Birdman won the first annual No Prep Kings championship for Texas. After an upsetting loss in the second year, he’s back again with his flame-throwing 1999 Pontiac Firebird.

Cody Baker

Cody Baker returns to shake up the competition in his 1969 Blown Chevrolet Camaro named “Shake N Bake”.

Ronnie Pace

“Barefoot” Ronnie Pace earned his nickname a decade ago when he attended a Street Outlaws race. Big Chief noticed his shoe-less feet, dubbed him Barefoot Ronnie, and the name just stuck. He’s driving a 1967 nitrous-boosted Chevrolet Camaro.

Eric Bain

Eric Bain built a badass 1972 Chevrolet Camaro that he claims is “the car to beat” this year.

Shawn Wilhoit

Shawn Wilhoit is bringing out the completely rebuilt Mistress, a 1966 Chevy II Nova with a 481X engine and a massive turbo under the hood. The Mistress was re-wrapped with splashes of the American flag and an homage to America’s heroes on the wing.

Amarillo Mike

Amarillo Mike is out here for Team Texas with his 1979 Z28 Chevrolet Camaro called “Dragula”. Dragula is sitting on a big block Chevy motor with nitrous boost.
