If you’re still not over the events of the last episode of Street Outlaws: New Orleans, then we have just what you need. A prominent member of the cast is Shannon Poole and with the show gaining popularity, people are interested to learn more about him. Now, fans want to know more about the drag racer and his wife, Cara Poole of Street Outlaws fame. If you want more information, then you can count on us with our Cara Poole wiki!
Who is Cara Poole?
Cara Poole’s age is unknown and although fans get to see a glimpse of her on the show, not much is known about Shannon’s wife. What we do know is that Cara is supportive of her husband’s racing, but not his antics.
“She’s one of my biggest supporters,” he said to the Sun Herald. “Without her or my dad, I wouldn’t be able to fund this or do this.”
Cara Poole’s Net Worth
Cara’s net worth is unknown at this time, but her husband has an estimated net worth of $500,000, stemming from his role in the Street Outlaws franchise. Shannon also has a day job as a firefighter, which also means he has to be at the firehouse for 24-hour shifts.
Racing Runs in the Family
Shannon grew up in Pascagoula, Mississippi and fell in love with cars, thanks to his father, Dale Poole. After taking a job at a full-service gas station in town, Dale saved his money and bought himself a 1961 Chevrolet Impala. It was also the first car Dale would ever fix before he decided to drag race. Dale’s father was also against the idea of him drag racing, but in the end, Shannon ended up being more like his old man. When Shannon was just 13 years old, his father bought him his first car.
“It made me want to follow in his footsteps because I looked up to him so much,” he said to the Sun Herald. “We worked on it together and I raced it and drove it as an everyday car to school and stuff.”
Cara Poole’s Instagram
If you’re looking for personal photos or Cara Poole’s hot pics, then we have bad news for you: She doesn’t appear to have an Instagram account! We know, it’s unfortunate but it only makes you want to watch the show even more and find out what else the Pooles are like as a family, right?
Who is Big Dookie?
If there’s one thing that Shannon loves just as much as his wife Cara, it’s his car; a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu, named Big Dookie. He purchased Big Dookie in 2001, soon after he got hired at the Pascagoula Fire Department in 2000. He bought it for $1,400 from a car dealership and it was green. Now, Big Dookie looks brand new with a fresh coat of red. It’s definitely not the same car Shannon bought 16 years ago, and he put an estimated $150,000 into it!
“When you make that decision to get in lanes with somebody, you’ve accepted whatever happens before you leave the line,” he said. “If you flip it 35 times, you’ve accepted that before you leave the lanes.”
When you spend $150,000, you can expect some serious speed. Shannon’s ’69 Chevelle is fed by an epic nitrous system and a 565ci motor.
