LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Street racers were caught on camera doing dangerous doughnut racing stunts on Saturday night. 

The videos were captures near Rainbow Boulevard and Cactus Avenue about 8 p.m. on Feb. 27. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said the scene cleared fairly quickly. 

Traffic was backed up as the group took over the middle of the intersection. You can even see people standing outside of their cars blocking traffic.

More street racers were seen doing doughnuts about an hour later at the intersection of Arville Street and Hacienda Avenue. It wasn't immediately clear if it was the same group. 

Las Vegas police did not provide additional details, such as if anyone was arrested on Saturday night.

These are not street racers nor drifters. Do no associate these imbeciles with drifters. Whole car community of Las Vegas has disowned these people. Their actions have led to people who build their cars and keep it on the track or deserted areas to be profiled and constantly pulled over by the police.

A caravan of them from California came to Las Vegas on a Saturday to participate in these side shows. A lot of them don't even live here.

I hope the LVMPD arrests them and impounds their vehicles.


My car doesn't stop for people unlawfully blocking traffic. These kids are going to stop the wrong car and intimidate the wrong person with a c.w.p. or just someone who is in fear and takes the lawful action of plowing through them as they drive to the police station to tell them what happened.
