Default some times a kill isnt

Theres this place in town that has a 2 lane going to a 1, and a stop light 100metres away from the merg. There was someone in the first lane, and someone in the second.
a dogde van with a camper in the stright lane, and a cutless suprem (90ish-- with some kid driving daddys car) So the kid and the van were stopped. I was still moving at about 20km/h 100ft back. the kid stomped on it when it changed to green, and cut into the vans lane-in the intersection. So i was in my trofeo, and I thought what the ***, I soo I bootted it and flew by the kid in the cutless and the van then I rode my brakes all the way to my turn off.. I thought it was fun. I hit 130km/h before I slowed down.

We race on this 2-lane side street behind a factory between 10pm-12am. THere are no cars, its not a residential area and no traffic at all. The race begins at this U-turn or dead end and the finish is a 1/4 mile away (estimated because my speedo is a 90mph where the crowd watches everyone fly pass them with the cars parked on the side street.) and there is a stop sign 2 blocks past the side street giving us ample enough time to stop from 90+ mph. Just like at the test tracks. Nice low key strip. I might not be the fasted in a race, but I sure can stop fast. LOL!!!
