Kye Kelley’s NEW Shocker Makes Progress in Debut at NPK Tulsa

Those who have been following along with Street Outlaws fan favorite, Kye Kelley, have likely noticed that Kelley has been operating with a bit of a busy schedule as of late. As Street Outlaws promotions have spread their wings out to a variety of different shows and formats, that now means that racers like Kelley have to maintain an entire fleet of cars.

Not only that, but not long ago, the racer also lost his main big tire car, the “Shocker,” as it ended up in a freak accident on the streets and the result was a mangled mess that was pretty much unusable.

In a short period of time, Kelley managed to turn things around, though, building a new version of the shocker that is back and better than ever. Of course, as with any new car, Kelley has to shake it down and make some changes to get it just right. These sorts of builds don’t come from the shop that they’re built in and roll onto the track, clocking off the best passes imaginable. Instead, lots of data needs to be gathered and adjustments must be made in order to get these cars to become the well oiled machines that we see at the top of the leaderboard.

This time, we check back in with Kelley’s constant grind toward the top. In this particular outing, we follow behind the scenes at No Prep Kings Tulsa as Shocker takes some more steps toward becoming the dominant monster that its namesake once was. Kelley says that heading into the event, they were making changes to the car on Friday night. In this video, we check in with that along with testing early on Saturday at Tulsa to try and bring things all together and progress toward where Kelley wants to ultimately be with Shocker.

This progression isn’t happening, though, without a fair share of curveballs. In the video below from Kye Kelley Racing, we watch as the car is adjusted and tested. Meanwhile, temperatures reach 100° at the race track and a generator failure has the whole crew fighting to keep moving forward.
