Evo Member Story: Illegal Race At General Motors Plant Results In Wheelchair For Life

Source: Communications Dept.
Release Date: May 19, 2010
Update / Revision: N/A

Evo Overview:

Long before the term "Fast and Furious" conjured up thoughts of "boy racers" terrorizing the streets and at a time when these same fans of the movie were being born illegal street racing was already rampant across America. One such story of this earlier era comes from an Evo member in 1982 when he was a high school senior. This story doesn't end like those seen in the movies where a car flips in the air and the occupant walks out with a bruise on his elbow. This story portrays illegal street racing in all its realities and horrors...
