Here is your answer at the link below.. In short use PixelPipe which is a free Iphone app that allows you to upload full HD vids straight from the phone..

No fire suits, no helmets, didn't see any kind of roll cages, spectators in places an out-of-control car could take them out, zero safety and zero appreciation for the dangers associated with fast cars. Totally immature and stupid. I love racing, I do it on a real track in cars built to be as safe as possible and almost no chance of hurting a spectator and with other drivers that have the same level of maturity and respect. Sorry but I find street racing to be a blight on legitimate racing, it is a HUGE issue to me.

I always thought you could get in huge trouble for just watching those events. I would say clear of that activity if I were you. what if they impound your car?

So awesome to see eclipses smashing american muscle and the corvette. We use to do this in Panama City, have well over 100 people there. Cops would come and depending who was working on FHP that weekend, they would either watch or turn on the blue and reds and it was like Dukes of Hazzard when we left. I know that this is not safe, but I loved the rush of being out in the open highway doing this at 1 or 2 in the morning.

People have a valid point in saying that street racing is dangerous, but is the city going to give us a street to do it on? in a controlled area? No, so is it really these street racers fault that its not a safe event? Im half assing my point right now because I dont really feel like pwning up on anyone. My main point is that if cities realized that people like to go fast and had events on the street to do just that, it would make it much more safe and could earn some money for the city and gain some respect for the cops......

I am by no means in any position to judge, but they do have those events. Infineon raceway does wed. night drags for 20 bucks and I know there are tracks in Sac and in the central coast that do the same thing.

Well true, im not saying there is no place to do it. I can go down to pacific raceways if and when they have a public drag, but it usually consists of man hr's wait time for a 13 second race......

Yes, people racing can (and often DO) loose their ride and all the costs that go into it. I don't think that they can take you car for simply being AT such an event (What if you drove up on it un-expectantly or were there trying to find your 16 year old daughter or....

But seriously, more and more legitimate locations are running public races (Charlotte's newest Z-Max is one of those) for VERY reasonable rates. Of course, registering for one of those can also help the insurance company deny coverage due to using the car for a purpose not intended/reported on the insurance claim... You can loose either way...

^seriously, street racing is stupid with all the dangers associated with it! Stick to a track where pramedics and trained staff are a few seconds away vs a few minutes in a burning car!
