On Thursday, CHP posted that some of their Stockton-area division officers were recently sent on a street racing course. Less than a day after finishing the class, officers on patrol identified a car with several alleged violations.

Officers say the alleged violations made them suspect that the car would likely participate in illegal sideshows.

After pulling the car over, officers indeed found that the driver had allegedly participated in San Joaquin County sideshows.
