Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws” Kye Kelley Outruns Scott Taylor in Best of Three Competition at MIR

Tuesday, August 2, 2016
The Discovery Channel’s “Street Outlaws: New Orleans” stars Kye Kelley and his winning 1992 Camaro nicknamed “The Shocker” along with Scott Taylor and his 1992 Olds Cutlass nicknamed "John Doe" took their competition off the street and to the track at Memphis International Raceway Saturday night with Kye Kelley driving away the winner of the best of three series.

Kye Kelley and “The Shocker” won handily in the first race. The second race saw Scott Taylor and “John Doe” launching off the starting line to take the win setting up a tie for the third and final race. The final race took place about 1:25 a.m. Sunday morning with Kye Kelley and “The Shocker” taking home the win and bragging rights at Memphis International Raceway.

“We had a blast watching Kye and Scott go head-to-head here at Memphis International Raceway Saturday night and look forward to continuing to bring interesting and engaging events our Mid-South race fans enjoy. Next up is the Professional Drag Racers Association on August 11 and then the 63rd running of the World Series of Drag Racing presented by Sunoco and the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau August 26-27,” said Pam Kendrick, President, Memphis International Raceway.

The races between Kelley and Taylor were broadcast live on the Memphis International Raceway’s Facebook page and can still be viewed on the page at this link: https://www.facebook.com/RaceMIR

Kye Kelley is no stranger to the racing circuit, having dominated the winner-take-all "Cash Days" - seen on last season's STREET OUTLAWS - against 32 of the nation's most elite racers, including Oklahoma City's fastest. With his winning '92 Camaro "The Shocker," Kelley heads back to the Bayou to defend his title and build a crew of the fastest racers in the Southeast. However, now with a target on his back, Kelley must quickly adjust to life at the top.

In addition to keeping his crown, Kelley wants to put The Big Easy on the map for street racing. Rallying a team of New Orleans racers will prove to be a challenge with high stakes, bigger battles, more smack talk and faster cars than this city's ever seen.
