Some people think that street racing is a law being broken and that all of us doing it should get arrested. Well I think that it is dangerous in some ways but it also keeps us out of trouble. On a weekend night you see some teenagers just having fun at a local hangout like near a sonic or at a abandoned theatre. But I think that it is better to stay on the streets like that rather than burglarizing houses. Street racers spend their money on modifications to their rides rather than drugs.

Picture yourself in Corpus Christi. As you walk on the gravel covered road, you spy a bright neon green Honda Prelude. When you take a close look, you will see all kinds of logos. Honda, Greddy, Mugen, Transformer, TriZone, Kamikaze, Weapon R, Neuspeed, Barely Street Legal, HKS, Xenon, DC Sports, Catz, Nakayama, Venom, Napolex, Tokico, Momo, Honda Sport, and Street Glow are all popular logos you can find anywhere. As you turn a cheek, the suns bright beam is reflecting off the shiny chrome wheels. Since it is hurting your eyes, you turn around; right in front of you is a sticker that says Greddy Racing Exhaust System. As your eyes wonder downward, you see the 4.5-inch exhaust tip. You stand up and leave with a huge smile and say, That is going to be my car one day. We race for the adrenaline rush not to hurt anybody even though we should keep it on the track its the thrill of doing something thats against the law.

The unaware motorist that are just riding along trying to get back home are put in danger every time someone races near them, their life is put on the line. I know at a couple races that I saw that two cars were racing and the racer in the right lane was coming in hard and their was a car that was going about 35mph and the racer could not stop in time so he floored it and cut the other racer off and merely missed the other innocent motorist by inches. It was both a exciting and scary event at the same time. It would be nice if they city would open the tracks once and awhile for the racers but until then their is always going to be street racing just about every where.

In my opinion I think that the only way that street racing is going to stop is if they city open the 1/4 mile strip and then maybe their will be some safer streets. The city does not have enough cops to control the number of street racers in Corpus Christi plus its getting by the day literally. Ever since the movie fast and furious their is a big increase in imported cars and domestic sports cars. But its also a good way to stay out of trouble because we are not spending are money on modifications for are cars. Plus once your done with your car you can probably sell it for a reasonable price to a young street racing enthusiast.

In conclusion my opinion on street racing is that the faster they make cars the more that us street racers will push them to the limit. So for the mean time if you want to go see street races go across the street to the abandoned cine 6 and watch a couple of racers and their rides. And remember be careful and safe driving. Thank You.
