‘Street Outlaws’ returns for filming in western Nebraska | Television
“We would love to have you come back,” Commission Chairman Ken Meyer told Kyle Anderson, a representative of Pilgrim Productions, at the meeting.
Asked why “Street Outlaws” sought to use Mitchell’s location again, Anderson replied, “Runners prefer it,” not knowing why. “We ran both (at Gering and Mitchell) and had no complaints (from the riders).”
However, Meyer said he received numerous complaints from residents affected by noise and other nuisance while “Street Outlaws” was running near Mitchell last year, while Charlie Knapper said he received complaints as crews filmed near Gering.
Knapper said people were offered hotel rooms and earplugs to use during filming, so he questioned the validity of the complaints. “Is it really a nuisance or do they just want to complain?”
Meyer said: “We want you (the ‘Outlaws of the Street’) to have the surface you need to do what you need to do, but then keep in mind the people who are going to be up all night. “
“The first time they ran, I rushed to my bed. I thought they were in my front yard. It’s so strong, ”said one man.
Randy Sorrell said some people who have requested to be accommodated in hotels have reported issues. A mother showed up at a hotel with her children to be told that the production company would not pay for her hotel. Another indicated that it had taken more than two weeks to find accommodation at the hotel.
