I am the luckiest MF alive

Last night i went to the track and threw down a couple of disapointing runs. Afterwards I headed out to the local cruise and ran against some guy w/ a rsx type s. I won one and then lost one, oh well. I felt better so i started to head home. As i was leaving an eclipse ran up on me and he was my friend i havnt talk to in years. He has a GSX w/ all the bolt ons. It runs low 13's. Well a Grand Prix w/ the SC ran up in the 3rd lane. It is pretty quick. I told my fruiend to race him. So all 3 of us drop it and of we go. The gsx leaves me and the GP slowly pulls on me. Oh well. Then the cop who was behind us goes ahead and pulls all of us over. Damn where he come from? He gets their lisences and comes up to me. "Do you know how many points you get for drag racing?" "No" "8 point . . .8 POINTS! I am letting you go because you were loosing. Have a nice night" He hands me my license and I go home obeying all the traffic laws. Ive never been so happy to loose.

I dont know. I wasnt going to hang around being as I convinced my frined in the GSX to run. I dont have his # so I'll just have to wait to see one of them around. One thing about the track that sucks. I spent my $20 and the track was closed for 1 1/2 hours for 'track maintenance' through out the night. Then it seems like they skip over the street cars to let all the really fast dragsters have all the fun. $20 for 3 runs in 3 1/2 hours. funk that. I just need to keep racing to the streets w/o all the cops, bars, university, and clubs. Especially around last call. I was aking for it, but i havent seen my neighbor in a long time.

Maybe next time you shouldn't run where the cops can see.

There are 2 kinds of street racing, one is 2F2F style on main highways and public roads where other drivers are involved and accidents can happen. The other is out of sight of other drivers and law enforcement.

I do street race, but like focal said, I do it away from everything. I find no point in racing a focus on the highway anyway, your done at 108. I've got a friend with an automatic neon that can beat me on the highway.
