DRAG VS STREET RACING
Samoa Drag Strip President, Danny Wright loves to race, but he certainly knows the difference between the two " It is never safe to street race." Said Danny Luckily for the teen drivers involved in Saturday’s street race, no one was killed; but EPD says one accident is one too many. Eureka police dedicate overtime hours and grant money to speed enforcement. Street racing is a misdemeanor, but EPD says one of the best deterrents is hitting violators in the pocket. The Samoa Drag Strip is the 2nd oldest NHA track in the world. There’s a time and a place for racing and the street is definitely not one of them. Although it can fun and exciting, safety should be the most important thing.
