The Shocker's Evolution:

The Shocker Camaro, crafted by the skilled hands at Wizard Race Cars, has undergone a significant transformation. Sporting 28x10.5 tires, this powerhouse now houses the same engine that once roared in the original Shocker, tragically wrecked in January 2022 during testing for America's List Season 2. The engine, a formidable 737 cubic inch nitrous-fed monster, promises an abundance of power for both small and big tire racing scenarios.

Return to Big Block Dominance:

The decision to revert to a big block engine marks a strategic move by Kye Kelley. With the fierce competition in the no prep racing world, especially on small tires, having the extra power from a big block engine is seen as a tactical advantage. This return to big block dominance aligns with Kye Kelley's pursuit of staying at the forefront of the ever-evolving street racing landscape.

Possible Race Scenarios:

Speculation arises regarding the motive behind several Street Outlaws testing on small tires. While some rumors suggest a potential small tire race, it's essential to note that the National No Prep Racing (NPK) season kicks off in March. NPK, known for its high-octane big tire action, is expected to maintain its course, providing fans with the thrilling spectacle they crave.

Race Palooza Event and Beyond:

The Race Palooza event, initially scheduled for the end of the previous year, might be a key influence behind the small tire testing trend. If the event gets rescheduled, or a similar one takes its place in 2024, it could be a major showdown for small tire enthusiasts. The excitement around potential small tire races is palpable, and fans are eager to witness their favorite Street Outlaws tearing up the streets on smaller rubber.
