Authorities On Lookout For Possible Drag Racing

Posted: Updated:

GENOA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in Livingston County say they're on the lookout for possible illegal drag racing after reports about two planned races.

The sheriff's department says it responded Saturday to a closed road in Genoa Township after getting calls about a planned race late that night. Deputies cited eight motorists in the area for accessing the closed road about 35 miles northwest of Detroit.

Shortly afterward, a 911 call reported the race had been moved to another roadway, this time in Marion Township. Deputies responded and dispersed a crowd of about 20 people. The department says those told to leave the area denied that a race was planned.

The department is warning people not to be involved in such races. And it is seeking tips from the public about any future races.
