Street Racing: Pedal to the Metal - Discovery Channel

Street RacingThey are genuine adrenaline junkies; talented precision drivers, skilled engine designers and builders – and they live for the thrill of street racing. In a sport that operates partly inside and partly outside the law, its enthusiasts spend tens of thousands of dollars and countless nights and weekends on their cars, all to maximize their car’s absolute speed in events that are won or lost in just a few frantic seconds.

This one-hour special for the Discovery Channel follows two enthusiasts from the Southern California street racing scene as they work with expert tuners and designers to make big changes to the look and performance of their cars. Ultimately, the racers will test their stuff on a track to race for bragging rights — they’ll bring their scene to the drag strip, and see just whose work has earned new respect.
