The RaceLegal.com “Code 4 Racing Program” was conceived and operationalized by San Diego Police Department officers Mark McCullough and Scott Thompson. Modeled after the national “Beat The Heat, Inc.” program, the pro-active San Diego “Code 4 Racing Program” was designed to assist with re-directing young people from participating in illegal street racing activity to the fun, safer and sanctioned alternative of legal track racing. In addition, the importance of “buckling up” and strictly adhering to “0 tolerance” guidelines are also emphasized by the off-duty police officers.
The San Diego “Code 4 Racing Program” emphasizes the safety message of “Cops and Racers”. SDPD officers McCullough and Thompson are an important component of all RaceLegal.com Qualcomm Stadium based 1/8 mile drag racing events.

This setting gives both the police officers and the young participants a forum to learn from one another what potentially can make a difference for both groups within our community.
