James Goad aka Reaper has earned a massive fans following as the cast member of Discovery's reality series, Street Outlaws. In the fall of 2017, he unveiled his new ride, a 1969 Camaro comically named as Deez Nuts, to the racing world.
1969 Camaro aka Deez Nuts
Cars and speed have never failed to fascinate Reaper. Long before appearing on the Street Outlaws, he was racing in Big Tire at Winter Meltdown. He capitalized every opportunity to get behind the wheels and aspired to go faster every single time. His intent of becoming the fastest street racer in the world goes beyond the show. Apart from Street Outlaws, he regularly appears in no-prep competitions and street races.
James introduced his 1969 Camaro absurdly named “Deez Nuts,” at 2017 PRI Show. The car was the talking point of the show, with 632ci big-block Chevy, based on a 5-inch bore space brodix block filled with a giant JE Pistons, a 4.5-inch stroke Callies crank, and a GRP connecting rods, which produces 4,000 hp. The idea of modifying 1969 Camaro into fastest and lightest car popped up on a simple conjecture, that was to dominate every type of racing. He said, “I built the car to really piss everyone off, and it’s doing a great job of that.”
Before the new 69' Camaro, Reaper used to drive The Reaper, a nitrous assisted 1968 Camaro with big block engine and big tires. He went head-to-head against his opponents in the street of Oklahoma with his old 1968 Camaro and became the street racing veteran in the OKC racing scene. He is still racing in the new season of Street Outlaws. He continually updates about the races and upcoming events on his Facebook page.
Net worth in 2018
Despite being public about most of the things related to his career, Reaper has not revealed his net worth as of now. However, as a veteran street racer and cast member of the reality series, Street Outlaws, his net worth can be estimated to be in millions. Although Discovery Channel has not revealed his salary per episode, the amount undoubtedly makes a significant add-up to his wealth.
Divorced or still Married?
Reaper tied the knot with Stacy Goad on February 8, 1992. But his relationship status on Facebook tells a different story about his married life which suggests the Street Outlaws racer is 'Divorced.' However, his wife, Stacy, recently posted her picture with the Reaper which indicates that the couple is still together.
Despite being married for over two decades, Reaper is yet to disclose about his children, but he has posted a picture of him with his grandson. Scrolling through the comment section makes it pretty clear that his grandson is staying with him now in Norman, Oklahoma.
Reaper is active on social media despite having busy schedules with street races and events. He seems to be active on Facebook and enjoys going Live on the page. As of March 2018, Reaper has more than 40k likes on his Facebook page.
