    Deep in the Southern Californian Desert, high horsepower street cars have begun overwhelming the street and track scene up and down the west coast. These cars terrorized the streets and tracks throughout the West yet no proof outside of the region has ever been logged, until now. A list with the idea of housing the best drag racers in the entire West has now been created. History will never forget the most feared racers in the country as they become part of The Red list. Welcome to The Red List Series.
