According to the L.A. Times, about 100 people per year die from illegal street racing in California alone (see related link). Note that many of these deaths are bystanders and other drivers, not participants of the street race. Statistics on deaths from sanctioned (i.e., legal) races are more difficult to obtain, however, the number is significantly lower given the precautions for car and track safety, even despite higher numbers of participants. Some people may include drunk drivers putting the petal to the metal in with the numbers for street racing related deaths. Much of organized street racing takes place with certain safety measures.
