Nate Sayler Eyes "No Prep Kings" Opportunity With Gorgeous Chevy II

Nate Sayler may not be household name in drag racing yet, but his tireless efforts to claw his way onto the “Street Outlaws No Prep Kings” invitational stage could eventually make him so.

The automobile wholesaler and automotive performance shop owner from Billings, Montana has assembled a world-class racing operation with top-flight tuning know-how to run with the biggest players in the series, going undefeated in a brief stint last season, with sights on a full campaign in 2023. His venture was aided this week by a phone call from Team Cali leader and street racing legend Jay Boddie, who asked Sayler to join his group. Committed to the grueling 15-race season in the “Future Street Outlaws” category, Sayler hopes that his enthusiasm for and devotion to the series will pay off with an opportunity to race his way into the 32-driver program at some point in the near future.

Sayler tasked Larry Jeffers Race Cars with building a 1967 Chevy II, and partnered with Pro Line Racing to put one of its ProCharger-boosted Hemi engines between the pipes. Well-respected tuner Lee White turns the dials, giving Sayler a car he believes could run with Ryan Martin, Kye Kelley, and the rest of the top-dogs in the reality-TV racing series. Sayler has been racing since his teenage years, transitioning from bracket racing and Top Sportsman, to Outlaw 10.5 and Pro Modified on his climb through the ranks. But his newest — and most significant — endeavor in the sport has been with “Street Outlaws,” in a venue that offers him no guarantee of a raceday invite or television time.

I’ve been a street racer for a really long time, since I was 15 or 16, and I wanted to be part of that camaraderie…to be part of as group of guys that have a love for drag racing, that go out and help each other get to the top, and kick everyone’s ass that they can, together. And these guys are the baddest SOB’s behind the wheel of a car…they’ve got talent, and I wanted to see if I could hang with these guys. I could’ve come out here and gotten my teeth kicked in, and I still might. But I think we’ve got enough car to compete with them. I’m not out here chasing TV, and honestly, if the TV thing went away but these guys were all still out here racing…
