Son of ‘Street Outlaws’ star charged in street race wreck

The son of a “Street Outlaws” star has been charged after injuring two people during a drag race in Houston, authorities said.

Ronald Gray Pace III — the son of Ronnie “Barefoot” Pace from the Discovery Channel reality TV show — is facing two counts of felony street racing causing serious bodily injury in connection to a March 17 crash on a public road in northwest Harris County, sheriff officials announced Tuesday.

Two men were seriously injured during the incident, which took place when street-racing aficionados flooded the greater Houston area for the three-day TX2K19 racing event in nearby Baytown.

Authorities said Pace lost control of his vehicle during the illegal street race, leaving two pedestrians with broken bones and other significant injuries, KHOU reports.

“These injuries are horrific,” prosecutor Sean Teare told the station. “In fact, I am shocked that these two young men were able to survive.”

The second driver in the race has not yet been identified, but he’s expected to face charges as well, authorities said.

“I’m here to tell you, street racing is a terrible scourge on this community and this entire country,” Teare continued. “Deaths occur every time people decided to do this and we’re going to stop it in Harris County.”

If convicted, Pace faces up to 20 years in prison. Messages seeking comment from Houston police and Discovery Channel reps were not immediately returned Wednesday.

Ronnie Pace first appeared on “Street Outlaws” in 2016, according to his IMDb profile.
