Death Race 2005: NYC


Hit-n-Run drivers claimed their 17th victim on the streets of New York in the early morning hours Wednesday. The latest victim was a 20 year old college student just crossing the street, listening to his iPod. Other victims include a 26 year old mother and her 2 year old daughter. They were struck in Queens by a green van with a custom-made chrome grille and gold wheels with a gold stripe down the side.

Are there any Death Race 2000 fans out there? Should I stick to Jack Bauer references before digging into my knowledge of B-movies?

Death Race 2000 is a film made in 1975 about the year 2000 and the national obsession with a NASCAR-like event called Death Race. The race crosses the country and drivers score points by taking out pedestrians, higher points are awarded for babies and senior citizens. Yes, the movie is as absurd as it sounds.
