Default ahhhh What A NIght

sooo i am sitting around doing nothing... get a call from a buddy, "wanna goto some street races tonight?" "sure", i say.

so we go down to university and see ALL these pathetic exhaust and body kit ricers, and i pull up and they dont know wether or not to take me serious.

so after standing around for 20 mins cops come and tell us to go home, aka they all scatter and run around madly, i follow some to a warehouse district.

here we find the motherload of rice. here they also found a nice little quarter mile straight away. so for about an hour and a half they dash backa nd forth. we also wonder..."any minute the cops should come and break this one up too."

so some 2003 formula firebird parks next to me and my friends all want me to race him... im hesitent but i say yes if he says yes... knowing most likely the outcome but someone had to race somethign other than god damned civic and corollas. some nice old muscle cars were also wreaking havoc.

well the guy kinda wandered away and 5 mins later WHAM. it was like the fricken fourth of july. red and blue everywhere, helicopters, tactical forces, sheriffs, and maybe 10 undercover cars were thrown in the mix.

everyone got in their cars (including me and my friends) and started to take off. now lemme tell you something: trying to manouver a huge bonneville through 200 young immature panicking asians and their whacked out cars is pretty damn tough.

i see a officer in a vest stopping cars and yellign to put their keys on the roof, i dash left and he chases me on foot with some off center names but i get away from him about 50 feet and he gives up. but noooooooooooo, they had us trapped on both ends, the sky, and the middle. defeat.

now we all sit for an hour. not knowing whats gonna happen. a news reporter (channel 9, upn9) approaches my car and asks us what we are doing so i say watching some races. then he asks me if i have anythign to say to mom and dad since i have their car and i say its my car doushe bag. i hope that makes it on air

then we turn aroudna nd get into lines and wait 2 and a half more hours. basicaly we were told that they have been undercover here for a month and been taking plates of the people who raced and struck tonight. i think 40-50 cars were towed and impounded.
even a kids frist time racing with his BRAND NEW (less than 200 miles) SRT4 was impounded. i was told to never come back again or my plates would be scanned and i would be arrested. no problem officer

woooftah, some people'* kids.

Racing on a Brand new engine? Wow that things gonna be eating oil and loosing compression later in life.... Yeah sounds like something channel 9 would do. Were they the ones taking plates?

NO THE TACTICAL FORCES AND SHERIFFS WERE TAKING EVERYONES PLATES FOR 3 HOURS. sorry for the caps whoops.

one sheriffs said it make it on cops since its so big. but they also checked everyones cars to amkes sure their was matchign VINs, no broken steering columns, and if it was a rally nice car they checkd under the hood for stolen parts. they busted all the racers and got alot of people for stolen cars and parts...

just a case of bad place at bad time.

I hate to rain on your parade, but street racing is not only illegal, it down right stupid!!! To many people have been hurt or killed because of it. When we were at the drags this year there were a lot of people there with modded out ricers and not one of them were willing to take on BoneEvil in a fair race.....
