from what I"ve learned, this is a family site, we don't want to encourage our youngsters to do that. Plus some stories may sound outlandish and other members'll call bs on it and ruin the forum. Plus it'* just plain stupid.

Because it is illegal and if someone gets pulled over that is a member of BC and is dumb enough to say "Bonnevilleclub.com says it'* ok to race", we can be at fault. Remember, street racing is stupid and there is no excuse not to go to the track.
