STREET Outlaws has featured the race car driver known as Big Chief since its inception in 2013.
Season 13 of the show aired on Discovery Channel on January 10, 2022.
Who is the Big Chief?
Street race car driver Big Chief, real name Justin Shearer, moved from Louisville, Kentucky to Oklahoma in 1992 when he was 12 years old.
As a kid, he rode his bike to old Route 66 to watch street racers and when he got old enough to participate, he acquired a 1972 Pontiac LeMans – his first race car.
Shearer was brought to the reality TV show, Street Outlaws, in its first season in 2013.
Making money from street racing is not something Shearer prepared for and he never intended to make a career out of it.
In an interview with dragzineShearer said his family doesn’t have enough money to go racing two or three tracks every month, but going on Route 66 allows them to do what they love.
“For us, winning or losing was the same,” Shearer said. “You’d go over there and race the biggest dudes you know this street, and someone came in winning and someone came in losing.
“So it was always drag racing, it just wasn’t in the same place. But for us it was the same.
“We never wanted to be illegal street racers. That’s how it went.”
Is Big Chief married?
Justin Shearer met his ex-wife Allicia while working as a gas station attendant in 1998 when he was just 18.
After dating for several years, Shearer and Allicia married in 2006 and had their two sons, Covil and Corbin.
However, the couple separated in 2017 and Shearer said on The Chief and Shawn Show podcast that they were unable to move past their differences.
“It’s obviously no secret that me and Allicia, my wife of 10 years, had some issues or whatever you want to call it,” Shearer said, adding, “Well, that’s more All the trouble, we actually have a divorce, and that’s what’s happening.”
Since his announcement, Shearer has a new girlfriend, Jackie Brasch, but said he waited until his divorce was finalized to start dating again.
According to DistractShearer confirmed their new relationship on the podcast and said, “Well, now what happened in the past is something that I have no control over.
“But now I’m looking at my future, I have plans and Jackie is my future.”
