    Default Gwinnett Meet

    Anyone been to one of these meets? I work in Lawrenceville and thought I might stay late after work and check it out this Thursday.

    I'm sure this is the unPleasent Hill BP meet that got the boot, which then got the boot from Sonic at Riverside. It's a **** show.

    I checked to see if I could go but I don't have enough street cred. They said because I drive a girl car I would have to join a stancz klub before I could even think about going. Oh well...

    I've been to 2 of those at Pleasant Hill. The 1st, there was heavy police presence including helicopter overwatch. It was otherwise uneventful and the car turnout was boring. The 2nd, there was a shooting.

    Gwinnett "car scene" is weak, and frankly there is little reason to ever stop between Duluth and Norcross on the 85 corridor. Check out a Fast Friday at Atlanta Dragway, or one of the iTrack events at Lanier speedway.

    I stumbled on a Pleasant Hill meet with the wife, it was a bunch of high schoolers being high schoolers. I'd rather wrench at a garage with good peeps and beer. I would offer my place but my wife is paranoid.

    This is exactly the reason I moved here. It's peaceful and a whole lot of nothing going on.

    So what was the official response for jumping the curb? Was the jumping intentional but the crashing not? Just don't see how these things happen.

    Yes jumping the curb was intentional, but he lost control and hit the other cars.
