There's an auto-enthusiast angle to a recent deadly spate of "sideshow" gunfire that most of the local media are missing.
To wit . . .
MOTORHEADS CLAIM KANSAS CITY NEEDS AN ORGANIZED AND SAFE STREET RACING AND 'DRIFTING' VENUE TO CURB RECENT VIOLENCE AT SIDESHOW EVENTS!!!
To be fair, after the mass shooting at Swope Park, East side leaders made the same argument. This time around we're hearing local auto club denizens lament the bygone days of Kansas City International Raceway (KCIR) as they claim a local racetrack could help alleviate more dangerous events.
Check the mayor's social media comments and a bevy of online response for confirmation of this trending criticism and proposal for a solution. There's a growing and grassroots movement not to crackdown on these events but to ORGANIZE urban auto enthusiasts into some place safer for their pastime.
