That is a ignorant post. It's against the law and with so many drag strips around why risk it. I'd hate to lose my wife or kid to someone thinking they are cool by street racing. Nothing but a bunch of clowns trying to act like a hero. Look, Piedmont will let folks make passes and bet on it, they will also pump it up for you if it's for a good bit of cash, so it can't be about that.
forget you man your more ignorant then anybody.if they get hurt for racing its their own fault tell them to move next time. i race friday and saturday forget all those cops and if you want my license and registration number then just look for me on main i'll stop and give it to you.

Ok, now I'm really confused. Did they just hype up the story by saying the guy in the Trailblazer SS had a Corvette engine because it came from the factory with a V8 motor or did the dude really do the switch. The more info I find it sounds like they've sensationalized it to be something it's not.
"Dozens of high-performance cars drive the strip:"...."even a Trailblazer SS, an SUV with a Corvette engine"
I do agree on the part about drunk drivers. They kill a lot more people a year and drunk drivers don't get their cars seized. I definitely don't think these guys should be racing anywhere near homes, main streets, and anywhere there are driveways. Part of the reason for the bust is the blatant stupidity of doing this right on popular city roads and posting videos on You Tube.
No the new trailblazer SS comes stock with a corvette engine he is just BS you

Street racing is stupid, but why are the penalties for street rdacing ten times as stiff as DUI. You loose your license for three years, insurance, and car. DUI you get your license back after the first ten days, and they don't take it until the third offense usually.
650 people died last year from street racing
20,000 people died from drunk driving.
There is no DUI in the State of North Carolina, its called a DWI (driving while Impaired) and you lose your license for the first 30 days not 10. You can pay to get you license back after the 30 days and you can keep them until you are convicted

It seems to me you can let them race and kill each other in a controlled location where no civilians could be injured in the process and the problem correct itself.
