Updated: Oct 19, 2023

The situation facing "Street Outlaws" star Ryan Martin is the last thing you'd want to experience while racing halfway across the globe in an area abundant in skilled fabricators but lacking easy access to physical car components – damaging a racecar.

Three-time champion of Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings, Ryan "Fireball" Martin, recently experienced a testing incident with his 1969 Camaro at Perth Motorplex in Kwinana Beach, Australia. This mishap occurred as he was preparing for an upcoming event, set to be featured on Discovery Channel. Fortunately, reports from Australia confirm that Ryan is unharmed, though the same cannot be said for his supercharged Camaro.


Ryan had sent his small-tire Camaro to Australia following its television debut on the spinoff series, Street Outlaws: Mega Cash Days. This Camaro boasts a rich history in outlaw racing even before the NPK champion acquired it. It is equipped with a Pro Line Racing hemi engine and relies on a ProCharger F3-136 supercharger for added power. This combination is a familiar one for his team, as they have achieved success dominating No Prep Kings and reigning supreme on the streets with a similar setup in his 2018 Chevy Camaro ZL1 and the original "Fireball" fifth-generation Camaro, which has served him faithfully over the years.

As mentioned in the video commentary, tire smoke was observed at the top end of the track, and there is speculation that the rear tires may have seized, causing the car to skid into the wall. However, no additional information or specific details have been disclosed at this time.

According to the team's announcement, a strategy has been devised, and the car is en route to Sydney for necessary repairs. Ryan Martin acknowledged that the primary hurdle they face lies in sourcing a suitable replacement for the unique carbon-fiber front end. This particular component would pose a significant challenge to replace promptly, even in the United States, let alone in Australia. Nevertheless, Martin expressed strong assurance that he will be back and ready to participate in the second scheduled event at Willowbank Raceway, scheduled for March 3-4.
