Eyewitnesses in Orange County, Florida report seeing 23-year-old Jessica Hazelrigg weaving in and out of traffic at very high speed, racing against her Bentley-driving boyfriend when she lost control and crashed into trees, the impact was so violent the car was split in two pieces.
no comment here as well.

Very sad. But I have to say, It's idiots that do shit like this in heavy traffic and in bad driving conditions that make it so hard for all of us that just want a clean street race! They make the "law makers" make more laws and harsher punishments because of the idiots that don't know how to drive! Just my 2 cents!

no offense to you personally, but quite honestly, for me there's no difference between an "idiot street racer" and a "clean street racer"...

Take 'em to the track if you gotta do the racing thing.

Good grief this junk, piles up like logs for a campfire.

so if a guy in a stang revs his engine at you at a red light, your going to roll down your window and tell him "gee, buddy I'd love to race your car next weekend at the track, hope you go!" ?!?

I dont understand why everyone associates street racing with racing next to innocent people and endangering lives. Ive done a ton of street racing, always on a vacant country road, or roads behind factories, or dead stretchs of roads. Never around people, and ive never seen someone wreak or get hurt. Just as likely to wreak at a track if your not a dumbass. Ive seen many more people wreak just from going fast and inexperience, not even racing. The people that wreck in accidents like this arnt racers or even car people, their just dumb people who dont know how to drive and think they can.

Sorry to say but probably.

Yeah, I have chirped the tires at the stoplight, but never have and never will participate in Street Racing.

If I wanted to race, it would have been at the track.
