If it's called street racing it's OK to own it by some of us. The more publicity it gets the more attention by the media and the more awareness by the public that there is a problem and then we can show that there is a solution to the problem. When professional street race, the races are very underground, and what happens is many city's are unaware that it happens, so then the cities make claims that they don't have any street race problem that they are aware of. No problem, no need for a solution. It's better that some of these young people take the heat, it keeps the heat off others. One of the funniest things I heard from a cop while being held in the back of a police car just before being let go was "I didn't even know that they still race out here, I thought it stop back in the 90's". Like I said no problem no need for a solution. T.I. was shut down because Brotherhood Raceway solved the problem in Los Angeles, so The city council said there was no more need for it. Since there was no longer a street race problem in the city there was no more need for the solution, Brotherhood Raceway.

Big Willie believes we are all racer, import or domestic. We have something in common that bonds us together. He came out to the EOTW to show his support and present some vest to BSR members who want to represent and fly BSR colors before he left for the Midwest.

Quote-
As the Sixties drew to a close, the social upheaval seen in other spheres of society influenced drag racing as well. In the wake of the 1965 Watts riots, legendary street racer Big Willie Robinson figured out a way to use drag racing to change society. An imposing, muscular 6'6" Vietnam vet with a badass Hemi Daytona Charger and trademark bowler hat, Big Willie was the undisputed king of the late '60s- '70s East L.A. street racing scene. In response to the growing influence of drugs and street gangs, Big Willie and his wife Tomiko organized the 'Brotherhood of Street Racers' as a way to channel the energy of South 805 youth away from crime and violence -- "peace through racing," as he put it. Working with local officials and police, Big Willie was the driving force behind the building of Brotherhood Raceway Park on L.A. harbor's Terminal Island. Before it closed in 1995, BRP was a popular destination for young South Cental racers and is widely regarded as the birthplace of import drag racing -- the 'Fast and Furious' scene. Efforts are now underway to reopen BRP, hopefully extending Big Willie's legacy to another generation of L.A. gearheads of every ethnicity.
