Jose Rivera aka Freakin' Rican is a street racer best recognized as the cast member of the Discovery's hit series Street Outlaws. He is quite famous for adding a little drama on the show with his infamous behavior and boisterous trash talks. However, he delivers with sheer dedication when it comes to burning the tires on the race track.
Cars and career
Freakin' Rican originally hails from Puerto Rico. He spent most of his early years working for O'Reilly Auto Parts. His love for cars and racing became substantial quickly after he moved to the States. He became the prominent cast member of the Street Outlaws on the second season of the show. He drives a 1991 Ford Mustang aka Freak of Nature.
The car is boosted with a 408 cubic inch small block crate engine with dual nitrous kit under its hood. It holds a Fox platform rear-wheel drive frame and a small block tire. Rican is a hard-working racer who aims to prove that the drag racing is not just about the big block engine and big tires.
Freakin' Rican is the member of the B&R crew, who are known to race with the small tire on the south side of Oklahoma. His sponsor, B&R Performance, has been highly supporting him in both the race track as well as behind the screen. Despite being the member of the show for quite a while, he is yet to enter The List. He almost got his shot at The List when Big Chief and Shawn made a deal where he could call out the gatekeeper Farmtruck, in exchange for bootleg Fireworks. Unfortunately, the deal went terribly wrong after AZN's joyride risked Farmtruck's #10 spot on the list.
Although Freakin' Rican is well known for his smack talking attitude, his willingness to break into The List has been profoundly overwhelming. He is planning to race his small tire 91' Ford Mustang aka Freak of Nature, to make his way onto The List. He wants to prove that the racers from the South of the 405 OKC also have what it takes to become the best street racers in the show. In addition to that, he currently works at the Bob Moore Ford while he is not racing.
Freakin' Rican makes some serious cash as a street racer and an employee of a successful auto company. However, he is yet to reveal his net worth in 2018. Despite the fact that, the Discovery Channel has not disclosed his salary per episode for starring in the Street Outlaws, the amount is guaranteed to make a significant addition to the figure.
Apart from being a racer, Freakin' Rican is also a husband and a father. He has been married to Christina Marie Rivera since 2012. Together, the couple shares a beautiful daughter. Despite the busy schedule, Freakin' Rican doesn't let his professional life overrule his personal life.
Freakin' Rican is also active on social media. He often shares pictures with his wife on a Facebook page called Freakin Rican Racing and B&R performance. Moreover, the page also shares the information about the newly launched cars and upcoming events. Currently, he resides in Oklahoma with his wife and daughter.
