Denver Police made three separate arrests and impounded a suspect's vehicle last weekend after receiving several complaints of drag racers in a fast food parking lot and the surrounding area,according to a Facebook post from the Denver Police Department.
That's why, if you have a need for speed, the department wants to remind you to drag race legally: At Bandimere Speedway.
Every Wednesday, racers can pay $30 to go as fast as they want at the drag racing venue, located at 3051 South Rooney Rd.
All you need is a valid driver's license and a vehicle that is safe for racing.
On Sept. 10, you can even race police, which is pretty cool:
