In case y’all didn’t know, Snoop Dogg is now a low key street race videographer, and we have one of his best videos for you today straight from the streets of Compton, where a couple of pretty badass street cars line up to race for a $9,000 payoff.
The cars are pretty typical of what we see lighting up the streets lately for the most part, though they certainly aren’t boring by any stretch of the imagination. There’s a bright orange Nissan GTR, the all wheel drive monster that has built a legendary reputation as a killer on the streets. Lined up alongside the GTR, a gorgeous blue Cadillac CTS-V that sounds like it has had a few modifications performed to bump up the horsepower.
The two cars line up on what our camera guy calls The Speedway, a stretch of street that looks to be as prepped as many drag strips. The crew breaks out the torches to heat up the surface to let both cars have the best possible surface to race on, which will hopefully let the cars decide the winner and not the street itself.
After the prep work is done, the cars line up with the Caddy getting a half a car lead and the break when the race starts.
As soon as the CTS-V goes to the floor, the GTR launches hard and begins to reel in the blue Caddy, finally driving around on the top end to take the win by about a carlength and a half. This is some great racing and these cars definitely match up well. The stipulations were good and made the race nice and close at the stripe, so we commend these guys for knowing how to throw down and put on a show for the spectators on hand. We’re still not too keen on having spectators at the big end of a street race, as that is incredibly dangerous, but that doesn’t take away from the awesome race itself.
