Street Outlaws’ Flip, a.k.a Tyler Priddy, raced a ’80 Chevy El Camino in Discovery’s reality show.

His Chevy was famous because of its mismatched parts which Flip had begged for, borrowed, and stolen to keep the car racing.Street Outlaws bio Flip

Flip was best friends with Big Chief since they were kids, when they would ride bikes to watch the local OKC street races.

He always had a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other.

Flip was the parts warehouse manager and worked for Warren Caterpillar for 10 years. He liked drag racing; starting with a Mustang, then an El Camino, he afterwards turned his passion towards Street Outlaws, the real-life version of The Fast and the Furious, beating out several others to be selected for the show.

Tyler Priddy passed away at the age of 31 on May 28, 2013 at his home in Yukon, Oklahoma.

While the cause of death of Tyler “Flip” Priddy has never been made public, reports suggest that he committed suicide, however there is no strong evidence for that.
