This matchup had the potential to be a nail-biter, particularly because of the specific conditions at Maple Grove. Under the current rules, when the air quality is optimal, ProCharger-equipped cars hold a slight advantage over their counterparts with screw blowers. This advantage stems from the rules limiting the screw blowers to 92% overdrive. Unfortunately, due to Kye's car issues, we couldn't witness this intriguing battle. Fans can only hope that Kye Kelley can swiftly address the problem and come back stronger in the races to come.


In the second race, Robin Roberts faced off against Murder Nova, delivering another thrilling race. Robin Roberts managed to secure the win, starting ahead of Murder Nova and maintaining a slight lead throughout the race. Both cars shared an identical engine combination, featuring the Proline mh7 Hemi. This meant that overtaking a car with the same setup was a formidable challenge, unless the tuning strategy significantly varied. Robin's tuner proved to be top-notch, while Murder Nova benefited from the expertise of Steve Petty.

Robin Roberts, a name synonymous with skill and determination, emerged as the triumphant winner of the Great 8 Shootout in the Street Outlaws No Prep Kings series, placing him firmly in the winner's circle this season. The Great 8 Shootout win not only earned Robin Roberts the admiration and respect of his fellow racers and fans but also catapulted him into a prominent position in the overall No Prep Kings championship race.
