Ok, so for many of us, street racing has died. It is a pretty sad thing, because most of the car guys, that I have had fairly long friendship’s with, all came from meeting at these street races. Most of us understand that the whole “stance” movement really is was caused street racing to die, but there are many many other contributors, in my opinion, to street racing’s death. It turned into a movie for many people. Once people starting thinking selfishly and thought themselves invincible, the scene just got annoying. All the OG’s just got tired of the bull sh*t. I mean, there would be nights where we would be out from 11-6am, and never have a race go down. Or have a race be clearly won, and the guys who lost wouldn’t give up the money for some reason(excuse) or another. Once it just got to be about the money, it died. Most of us didn’t mind the trash talking, long nights, and bull sh*t runs. It was about enjoying the experience and having that “rush” of running from the cops every now and then. Sad to say, but I don’t think it will ever go back to those days.
Here is a video of a recent race. Although street racing still goes on, the real, money runs are few and far between. You also see the crap that goes on now.
