Now, those racers have the chance to win on the biggest stage in No Prep and get some huge recognition.
Outlaw Armageddon will be packed with many of the biggest names in No Prep along with the stars of Street Outlaws, but the Open class racers are the backbone of this event.

Thunder Valley Raceway Park’s Nick Duty has been helping put this event on since it started and he sees the potential opportunities the race provides to the Open Class racers. “Most of these racers are normal people who are not only racing for the money but the chance at changing their racing lives. The publicity, sponsorship opportunities, marketing materials, and other benefits that come from winning the biggest No Prep in the world are priceless. This race will be seen by millions of people between the live event, SpeedVideo broadcast, highlight videos, pictures, and social media posts.”
This kind of platform is why there will be so many racers at Outlaw Armageddon trying to pick up round wins any way they can. The Open class racers all understand the level of competition that this event brings, and that makes the racing even more exciting whether it’s the first round or final round Saturday night under the lights. Every Open Class racer who buys a tech card for Outlaw Armageddon wants to be part of the rich history of the event and be called a champion.
“Outlaw Armageddon is the biggest stage in No Prep. The drivers that are able to navigate their way through toughest racers in the country will not only have bragging rights, but they will be able to reinvest in their racing programs. The $20,000 prize money, the notoriety from social media, and the exposure from the SpeedVideo live stream that reaches hundreds of thousands of people and potential sponsors can change the course of someone’s racing operation in one day,” Duty says.
