“I’m gonna be at this race because only the biggest and baddest names in no prep/grudge racing will be in attendance… And those are the guys I want to race.

“We’re taking fishing to a whole new level, no more catch and release, we’re gutting all the wallets we can!” – Farmtruck and AZN.
The American Outlaws Live Racing Tour was established by Over Kill Motorsports president Mitchell Clary, along with multi-time world championship racing drivers Britt and Slate Cummings; each of whom have a long and successful history in drag racing and the industry surrounding it.
“Our goal with this organization and in particular this event is to change the perception of racing on a couple levels,” explained Over Kill Motorsports Mitch Clary. “We want to show ‘Outlaw’ racing fans that taking these events off the street and onto the race track doesn’t take away one bit of the excitement or entertainment of the show. At the same time, we want to show diehard race fans that just because these big name competitors aren’t racing in Top Fuel or Pro Stock doesn’t mean they don’t have incredible equipment, along with talent and passion that is shared by racers across the world. Bringing this event to the Texas Motorplex combines some of the biggest names in racing today and one of the most fabled facilities in racing history. And we’ll do it all in a safe, family friendly environment. It’s going to be one helluva show.”
Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center American Outlaws Livewill give fans the unique opportunity to meet the drivers they’ve become so familiar with on TV up close and in person! Recognizable TV personalities, Farm Truck and AZN will be on site with their familiar side show. Fan friendly events including a pre-race party, meet & greet, and huge tents featuring driver appearances and exclusive apparel will provide one-on-one experience with the most sought after drivers in Outlaw racing. The American Outlaws Live event will take on a very patriotic theme with a memorable flag presentation, fireworks, and discounted ticket packages for current military service members. Want more? The event will also feature jet cars and monster trucks, pounding the Texas Motorplex pavement!
“The Texas Motorplex is world class facility to watch these incredible machines and drivers; and it guarantees that every fan will have a seat with a great view,” said American Outlaws Live Racing Tour co-founder and former IHRA champion Britt Cummings. “Fans will not have to stand up for hours and hours. Drivers will be available for autographs and pictures. We are making it affordable for a family to come out and see a great show.”
“This is the first of many events to come showcasing American Outlaws Live and its list of well-known participants,” explained Marty Morris of Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center. “Outlaw racing is growing in popularity with both racers and spectators alike. Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center and Scoggin-Dickey Raceshop are excited to be a partner in bringing American Outlaws Live to the Texas Motorplex on Mother’s Day weekend for its inaugural event.
