Damon Merchant has been drag racing for over 2 decades. So, it was only a matter of time before Big Chief acknowledged him and invited him to Street Outlaws.
So, who’s this “new guy” on the popular racing show? Keep reading this Damon Merchant Bio to find out.
Damon Merchant On Street Outlaws
The 17th installment of Street Outlaws added a lot of new elements to the mix, and that included a new driver, bringing back old favorites like “Kamikaze” Chris Day and Chris “Boosted GT” Hamilton, and a new guy, Damon.
A rising star, Damon has been drag racing ever since he was 16. “I got introduced to drag racing from another local guy, and we started doing the local high school drags at Thunder Valley in Noble, Oklahoma,” he recalled. So, this means Damon has been racing for over 20 years.
Now, he sports his gorgeous 1968 Camaro, named “Rogue,” and he’s worked his way onto the 405’s top 10 list.
Initially, Damon did some index racing with the Camaro. It was more like a 6.0 car then. But as he started getting into bigger games, he wanted to do some heads-up stuff with it, and he just completely changed everything. “I think the only thing I used was the roof and quarters on it. Other than that, everything is brand new on the car,” he added.
The last we checked, Camaro was powered by a Jon Faubion (Faubion Motorsports) 548CI big block Chevy with an F3-121 ProCharger.
No wonder, he was able to take out Birdman and got a chance to race against Kamikaze and the infamous Elco. Sadly, the Kamikaze suffered a horrific crash in their race and Damon has been a fixture on the show ever since.
