    I hate how they always use "illegal street racing" as an excuse both to say they are not abiding by the laws and grow revenue for local cop agencies and also by the racers as well since they use it as to feel cool which is not. A car going 75mph to worknis n.v illegally street racing so why dont they just call it a sport/hobby like it is.
