Big Chief is a 42-year-old professional racer and TV personality from Louisville, Kentucky. He comes from a family who takes street racing quite seriously. Because of this, Justin Shearer got behind the wheel before he was 10. Big Chief’s bio additionally reveals that he is a member of team 405, a group that he also leads.
His passion and prowess for driving eventually led to a second career on television as he and a few others appeared on Street Outlaws and its subsequent spinoffs. Justin has been notably absent in the current season of America’s list. Here’s what happened.

Why is Chief not on No Prep Kings?
Big Chief is not racing as often in No Prep Kings, despite his previous appearances at the competition. This explains why he has been absent from the recent Street Outlaws season. But he did add that he went out of town in the 405 show, hinting that he is likely to be reappearing, but could not say much about the next season.
Reports state that he left due to the exhausting racing schedule. He told fans on social media that he simply took some time off from the show to focus on his family and the workshop, as well as relax.
Other rumors suggested the show may have let him go, but Justin denied this speculation in April, stating he would return in following seasons. Big Chief got into an altercation with Precious when they began filming America’s List, which fans think led to his decision to quit this show. Some even think the feud between them was staged for publicity.
A fan said: “Big Chief quit America’s List first night of filming because he and Jackie got into an argument with Precious.” It has been said that Jackie was also involved in the feud between Precious and Big Chief. As reported by Xtr Horse Power, the argument happened at the very beginning of the season – at the first driver’s meeting.
Big Chief hasn’t been in Season 4 of ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings.’
