Alongside underground street racing, the driver has a daily job up his sleeve. We’ve got all the details on his whopping fortune, which we’ll get to in 3… 2… 1… Go go go!

Who is Chris Varni?

Chris Varni is a Street Outlaws cast member who recently made it onto America’s Top 25 List. He is best known for driving the Orange Crush, which features a 400 cid small block Ford engine under the hood built by Nick Dixon.

Also built by Pro Street Engines in San Antonio, Texas, Nick first started building engines for Chris back in 2017, but has been involved in the engine building industry for quite some time, as per Tomorrow’s Technician.

The 1988 Fox Body Mustang is driven and owned by Chris, who is originally from San Jose, California. He now lives in New Braunfels, Texas, and is currently single.

He has another money-making talent

Chris is a keen racer on the streets, but the truth is that his main job is roofing. He launched Varni Roofing in May 1999, after a decade of working on roofs, and now presides as president and operator of the Texas-based firm.

Licensed and bonded in the area, as well as being a member of the New Braunfels Home Builders Association, the racer’s extra money-making talent means he’s a Jack of all Trades!

From apartment complexes to houses, the company offers metal, shingle, commercial, residential, TPO, and fluid-applied roofing from experienced roofers, along with a free estimate on their website.
