Discovery Channels Street Outlaws star Bobby Ducote gave us a call earlier in the week regarding some testing after a converter update while he was in town visiting SunCoast so he could get ready for an upcoming No Prep Kings filming and it just so happened we had our (no prep / no time) Tri-County Grudgefest this weekend! One thing lead to another and him joining us for the race fell into place and him racing in the Top Outlaw class against the 850’s toughest hometown big tire competitors.
Bobby’s big tire car looks a lot like “lil legend” his renowned small block nitrous no time car but that’s where the differences stop. Unlike the lil legend, the big tire car packs a 565″ Hemi under hood fed by twin 98mm turbos and is rumored to make well north of 3000HP.
If you’ve been on social media in the past 24 hours and follow Bobby, you’ll find a video that he shared calling out a fella named Tyler Lee, those of you who have been to ECD recently likely know Tyler Lee and his bad to the bone 67 Chevy II. Bobby got word of Tyler’s domination of the previous Grudgefests, the fact that Tyler is #1 on our 850 Big Tire list as well as the reigning champion in our Door Slammer “No Mod” class and decided to aim right for him, calling him out on social media. While Tyler isn’t into the social media stuff it didnt take long for word to get to him and his response was “Tell him I’ll be at ECD on June 30th and July 7th as well as racing in OKC on July 21st, tell him to pick a date or pick them all and lets race!”
