Why did Big Chief and Shawn split?
Many viewers at home have been wondering what happened with Midwest Street Cars and why Shawn and Big Chief have split. The reason is that they have grown apart and have different priorities in life now, Big Chief revealed in a YouTube interview last year.
Shawn has decided to focus on his family and has since moved onto a new business venture as he opened a new shop with Phantom, called 187 Customs. Chief has decided to focus on street racing.
While Big Chief and Shawn have gone their separate ways in business, it’s worth noting that their friendship is unbreakable. Big Chief confirmed that he and Shawn are still close friends in the YouTube interview.
