A host and commentator for Discovery's Street Outlaws: Fastest in America was killed Sunday morning while driving his Datsun 240Z for the show.
Ryan Fellows, 41, was attending a sanctioned event outside of Las Vegas when he lost control of his turbocharged V-8-powered 240 and crashed. Fellows took part in the eighth of nine scheduled races that evening. His car rolled and caught fire, and onlookers were unable to get him out of the wreck, reports TMZ.

"The Street Outlaws family is heartbroken by the accident that resulted in the tragic death of Ryan Fellows," Discovery said in a statement on Twitter. "We send our deepest condolences to Ryan's loved ones as they process this sudden and devastating loss."
This isn't the first time tragedy has struck the Street Outlaws series. Co-star JJ Da Boss was involved in an accident while filming for the show earlier this year. His wife Tricia, who was in the car with him at the time, was taken to the hospital. In 2020, actor Christopher Scott Ellis - nicknamed "Kentucky" - died at the age of just 39.
"Ryan was an avid car enthusiast and was in many ways a street warrior, extending to a love of basketball, cars and the sales/advertising business," the Fellows family said in a statement. "He was admired for his tenacity and relentless drive to meet the challenges ahead."
Fellows leaves behind a wife and two children.
