Fastest in America is one of four Discovery Channel shows that are a part of the “Street Outlaws” television franchise, along with the original series, “Memphis” and “No Prep Kings.” The franchise, which premiered in 2013, gives viewers a look into the world of street racing. “Fastest in America” is a reality television competition show that is currently in its third season and focuses on eight teams of racers competing against one another for a $100,000 prize. Fellows competed in the show’s third season, and also appeared in an episode of “Memphis” that aired in the fifth season as a guest racer.

Fellows is survived by his wife Liz and his two children Josiah and Olivia. In a Go-Fund-Me page created for his family, it reads as follows: “Ryan was an avid car enthusiast and was a road ‘warrior’ in numerous ways, which extended to his love of basketball, cars, business, and sales/advertising.

There was a strong sense of admiration for his tenacity and relentless drive to overcome the challenges that lay ahead of him.”
