Street racing is exploding across the country and taking new form, with racers organizing exhilarating, underground street racing leagues and establishing teams to represent their respective cities. One of those fledgling teams is now featured in the new Discovery Channel series: Street Outlaws: New Orleans. The new series, which premieres Monday, February 22 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery, follows a motley crew of street racers in The Big Easy as they band together to prove they are the nation's fastest. Featured on Discovery's Motor Mondays, the original STREET OUTLAWS is Monday night's #1 cable series for men (M25-54, M18-49, M18-34; excl. sports). Last season was the series' most-watched (P2+) and highest-rated ever, and now they're taking on New Orleans.
Kye Kelley is no stranger to the street 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.
