I know this may be an old subject but in your opinion do you think it should be legalized and have you ever done it yourself

Me I've Highway raced every single car I've owned and not owned.I think a Possible solution is to have strips(drag strips that is)more accessable for people who want to race.I mean I loved the adrellin from racing but I seriously think that there should be more of concerted effort to have more places where it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to do it at.I mean since people place bets(sometimes) at these gatherings that it can be taxed or something I mean look at horse racing for cryin out loud I mean don't ya think PETA hasn't been looking out for the horses that are running there? WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE LOOKING OUT FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO RACE?

legalize street racing? yeah, OK. are you on crack?

racing should be kept on the track...and yes things should be done to make tracks more accessible so you dont have to race on the street.

I have been doing it when I had my Stang, but I've been alot more cautious as I've gotten older due to the fact that law's are being enforced more and I'm not as much of a risky driver as I used to be!

Since we are raising these types of question.

When are they going to legalize reckless driving and DWIs?



Really.....cmon. Legalizing these things are stupid. Plain Stupid.

If we are talking legally closing a street off in a racing event thats ok. But in a safe manner it would be more expensive than just going to the track.


Hell, the local 1/8th isnt even 20 bucks. And I can get lots of passes in.

if i ever become stupid rich i will buy a bunch of land and setup a 2 mile strip next to a 1/4 mile strip, so you can race from a roll as you do on the street...

i think there should be specific streets closed down once a week (maybe Saturday night 10:30ish) in city's where there are no drag strips with in an hours drive like AUSTIN! they could check tags,plates,and licenses.... there are a lot of holes in my plan but i think it could work out

Me i did it cuz it wound up from a bench racing discussion to a highway race with two classmates.
but the last time i highway raced was Last year and i haven't done it since

I think that the families in their homes nearby wherever this would occur would complain continuously and will quickly shut down the area. I don't think it would work out either :p
