Members of the street racing task force descended on a street takeover at the intersection of Red Hill and Valencia avenues around 11:33 PM.
Officers surrounded the the group of performers and spectators and effected a mass stop which resulted in numerous misdemeanor citations being issued.
As part of the enforcement effort a contingent of tow trucks responded to impound vehicles involved in the illegal activity.
About 15 cars were impounded, some for up to 30-days, and numerous citations were issued but a concrete number was not immediately available.
The street racing task force consisting of officers from the Irvine, Tustin, and Santa Ana police departments was formed in response to a recent increase in street racing activities and crashes.
