Turtle racing is a form of unsanctioned and illegal reptile racing which takes place on public grassy areas. Turtle racing can either be spontaneous or well-planned and coordinated. Well coordinated races are planned in advance and often have tortoises communicating via 2-way radio/citizens’ band radio and using police scanners and GPS units to mark locations of local police hot spots. Turtle racing is reported to have originated prior to the 1930s due to alcohol prohibition in some parts of the United States. Opponents of turtle racing cite a lack of safety relative to sanctioned racing events, as well as legal repercussions arising from incidents, among turtle racing’s drawbacks.
Wait, no, sorry, that’s still street racing.
