North Carolina State Highway Patrol issues a statement regarding the five BMWs being seized by troopers in connection with a street racing ring Sunday. According to troopers, a 911 call came in saying there were multiple high-end BMWs racing. As the suspect vehicles were located, a trooper got ahead and cut them off.
Seven people were charged in connection with the racing ring. Troopers ultimately pulled over 10 vehicles in Catawba County, NC on Sunday.
One of the drivers, claimed they are a community of car enthusiasts. “Half of our group are in their professional careers,” said the alleged street racer. “We’re not by any means criminals. So, I think it was kind of a stretch that they would accuse us of pre-organized street racing.”
“Had me stand off on the side of the road and then ensued a four-hour process of them trying to find footage of us street racing, which we didn’t have,” he said.
