Valenzuela, the driver of the Nissan GT-R, is currently in jail, charged with two counts of murder and faces up to 33 years to life in prison. Gevorgyan, who is also in custody, claims he wasn't in the Mustang when it crashed.

The NHRA recently came out against "Street Outlaws" threatening to suspend the competition licenses of drivers that had appeared on the show.

I came to this thread to watch street racing idiots defend other street racing pieces of shit who killed two people and ran away like the cowards they are. I have not been disappointed! Keep up the idiocy, boys, and don't forget to blame the victims!
