Gas Monkey vs Street Outlaws: Mega Race

Anyone else been following this? I'm not one to usually watch these type of shows but caught a glimpse of it on tv and thought I would see who wins.

In case this is your first time hearing of it, here is a brief summary of what's going down: http://www.dragzine.com/news/street-...-in-mega-race/

Any thoughts on who might win? Big race airs in two days (3/27).

I have. I really don't like the over dramatization of reality. If driving experience is a winner it will be Big Chief. If money can buy you a win, then Richard has it.

From a clip I saw, Chief called out Richard on his designated driver vs. him driving. It will be interesting to see a steel bodied crow back in action.

I don't either but it has come a long way in some regards. Like when it first came on and the cars would be going down the street there was a fake "noise" of an engine dubbed in that sounded like a f'n motorcycle.

I don't know....Alex Laughlin ain't no slouch, but.....

I'm pulling for Chief. Richard is (or at least acts on TV) like a douchebag. And having unlimited funds, calling in a pro stock team to build and drive your car....just not a fan.

I'm more interested in Aaron's build. A BMW M3 with an LS swap sounds like a fun car.

Does anyone truly know if Richard can actually work,paint,fabricate,or do any mechanical ability on any of these builds they do?
Chief has got this.

That's no act! Had the displeasure of meeting him a few years back.

Yeah, I've been following it. Too bad Aaron quit. I hope he doesn't join those guys in Fired Up garage.

For those fans of Wheeler Dealers (I am), Edd China just quit the show.

Id have to watch the whole episode to get the whole deal. From the preview, looks like Richard borrowed a pro mod, stuck his logo on it, and is calling it his. Whereas Chief and his group legitimately built that car they have. Chief for the win.

With fast and loud ratings tanking, I wouldn't be surprised if Aaron gets his own TV show where he's the boss and does his own builds with his own crew. I wouldn't be surprised if Richard produced it, just like he produces Fired Up ,Misfits Garage. Probibly all part of the Richard Rawlings master marketing plan.

There is no wheeler dealers show without Ed China. Where did you here that?

I enjoying both shows. I think Richard bent the rules when he called in the Laughlin's to build the car and Alex to drive it. It's definitely not a complete Gas Monkey Garage build. I think Big Chief has the advantage being that he races more often than Alex. So I'm going to say that Big Chief's experience will beat Richards money....
