When it comes to high-stakes street racing, nobody does it better than Memphis. Over the past few years, the MSO have been dominant in the streets, both in Memphis and on FASTEST IN AMERICA. They’re willing to take on anyone, any time, and almost always come out on top. But what happens when they leave their own turf in Memphis and head to Las Vegas to race the best of the West Coast on one of the trickiest streets in the country? In an all new season of STREET OUTLAWS: MEMPHIS, JJ pushes his family like never before to prove they’re the best racers in the game.
MEMPHIS premieres Monday, July 19 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery. In addition to watching Street Outlaws: Memphis on Discovery and discovery+, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using #StreetOutlaws and following @StreetOutlaws on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
While the MSO has raced this road before, they’ve always struggled to fine tune their races to get down the street. Now, they’ll have to figure it out before the West Coast drivers take their money. JJ invites the top West Coast racers out to challenge the MSO — including the infamous Boddie and a new, fast-talking Cali driver who seems to have it out for JJ and the family – -and with the West Coast’s unique style of driving, Memphis will need to work together to get the wins they need to make the Vegas trip worth the risk.
Audiences will see some familiar and returning faces in the streets alongside the MSO, including Big Chief, Jackie and Boddie who come out for the race, making these Vegas streets a super-star event. Also this season, Axman and his wife join team Memphis for the season, alongside the rest of the MSO crew including Precious, Tricia and Dennis Bailey.
With big-time money, a new street, new drivers and a risky bet that may push the family beyond its limits, JJ Da Boss and his MSO crew must rely on their tried and true grass-roots street racing skills to come out ahead and prove they’ve learned to dominate out of their comfort zone far and away from home.
