Juddi Lin, 19, is an ex-illegal street racer.  The Community College of Southern Nevada automotive tech student used to tear up the streets of Clark County until she got torn up -- twice -- herself. "I've been through six cars in the past five years," Lin admitted.  "Two out of the six were (demolished) in street-racing accidents.  Both of them were a total loss.  The first one, I was street-racing a Mustang on a rainy day and I broke my collarbone.  On the second one, I was at the illegal street races and I wasn't wearing my seatbelt and my forehead hit the (windshield) and my chin hit the steering wheel.  They sent me to the trauma unit.  It was an unhappy picture." These days, Juddi's competitive urges are focused solely on Titan Auto Insurance Midnight Mayhems at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. "I no longer race on the street," Lin continued.  "I only race at The Strip.  My parents don't want me street racing.  But when I tell them I'm going to the (drag strip), they say, 'Okay, that's fine, you can go.'  They would rather have me race at The Strip than on the street.  I do still attend the illegal street (racing) meetings, just to meet with my friends.  After that, I'll just leave and go home. "It was exciting for a few years.  I used to attend the illegal street races every Saturday for two years -- I never missed a Saturday.  They used to call me the 'Illegals Queen.'  After I got into the accidents, I started coming to The Strip.  It's better than racing at the illegal street races.  No car accidents, no cops and it's a good atmosphere." After checking out the local street scene on LVDR.net, Lin pays $10 to enter Midnight Mayhem and safely drag races against her peers until 2 a.m. on select Friday nights. "I've been coming to Midnight Mayhem since it started.  It¿s a great atmosphere -- there's music, you see your old friends here and you get to race on the track all night long without a problem.  No cops chasin' after you or anything.  Right now I have an '89 Honda CRX that's my racecar and I also have a '93 Acura Integra that's my daily driver.  I also have a 300 ZX that's actually my 'just-in-case' car." The Strip at LVMS launched the Midnight Mayhem series last year and the street-legal drags program became an instant hit.  The program was so popular it caused race officials to expand the schedule twice.  Titan Auto Insurance is the official sponsor for the 2003 edition of Midnight Mayhem.  Each event includes street-style racing from 10 p.m.-2 a.m., a nightclub DJ and a car show.  Spectators pay only $5, and the racer entry fee has been held to an affordable $10.  LVMS' program is so successful that the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) recently produced a how-to kit for track operators, based on The Strip's Midnight Mayhem guidelines. "We'll never completely stop illegal street racing in the Las Vegas area," said Chris Blair, LVMS' director of drag racing operations, "but Midnight Mayhem helps.  Each car drag-racing out here at The Strip is one less car participating at illegal street-racing events in the city." The 2003 Titan Auto Insurance Midnight Mayhem series continues this Friday night at 10 p.m.  Midnight Mayhem is open to any street-legal car or bike.  Driver must have a valid driver's license and proof of insurance.  For more information, visit the LVMS website at LVMS.com or call The Strip's office at (702) 632-8213.
