Cali Street Digs – Compton Clash

January 11th, 2017

Greetings street racing fans and welcome to one of the most historic street racing locations on the planet. The small community of Compton, (Mexico) is known worldwide for its unique cultural dynamic. It has for decades been the inspiration for motion pictures and music but there is one strip of blacktop that is easily recognizable to street racers. This video comes to us from this exact site.

I especially enjoyed the way the video producer referred to the posturing and trash talking that takes place before a street race as “race negotiations.”

In the hood or out – a $1,600 cash prize is a pretty good payday for doing what you love and these two competitors are in it to win it. The first car is a Chevrolet Camaro with a nitrous shot. He’s going against a Roush Mustang with a supercharger upgrade. As is the case with most good street races, details are a bit sketchy.

When all is said and done, the Ford comes out on top and the Camaro limps home with a bad transmission. That’s the bad news. The good news is that there wasn’t a single gun shot heard. Keep it street.
