Thats a typical saturday night on the skyway
Are you being serious? I used to drive the skyway every friday and saturday night at varying times between 9pm and 9am for work and I NEVER saw a single race. Shit cars nor exotics.

I would have LOVED to see some crazy shit to break up my shift lol

They probably have more money than sense and could afford a lawyer to be able to keep their license and car if they got busted... Unlike most of us here.

doesn't make it right :dunno:
No... But these are not the guys getting people killed from "street racing". Its the fast and furious fucks that race through traffic, race with people in the car, race with many people around (spectators) etc. Legit guys going out for a full highway pulls or going to a deserted area late at night to get a race off then get out are not the problem. More often then not its the lack of experience that gets people in trouble IMO.

I don't have an issue with it personally, was just pointing out to Das that just cuz they can afford a lawyer doesn't mean it's OK to break the law. Those lambo owners are no more entitled to street race than you or I. There was recently some banter about streetracing, I think in the merge thread?, and someone (darkC6 maybe?) had a good perspective on racing. Basically just don't do it around people. Maybe it was the meet thread where the dakota lost a tire?

Yes, there was a time where more of this happened in Chitown (the roll racing type stuff), but expensive tolls on the interstates, expensive gas and stepped up enforcement has practically eliminated it. Here's something I put together years ago:

I'm pretty sure there were cars close during each race. And stated in the video they are hitting speeds over 200mph... Your right though, that's way safer... Pssshhhh

There's no people coming out of a restaurant and yelling at them. If you can dodge a tire, you can dodge a ball.

Also, once I get a serious car I want to go to TX2K baaaad.
