California Highway Patrol officers were told late Monday night that what appeared to be street racing was taking place on Dillard Road east of Highway 99. CHP units gathered at a fire station in the area as a CHP aircraft flew to the site of the suspected road racing.

The air crew saw two cars that had just run a race at more than an estimated 100 mph, according to a CHP press release. Two other cars were racing.

Officers in the patrol cars detained a dozen people in cars on Dillard Road, west of Riley Road, near Wilton. All parties complied with officers and remained at the scene.

A CHP officer also stopped two other vehicles that had just completed another street race at Dillard Road and Riley roads.

Four men were cited for “engaging in a speed contest”: Chandanvir Sing Hajrah, 23, of Elk Grove; Alexander Bernard Reiter, 24, of Rancho Murietta; Eric Daniel Mar, 22, of Elk Grove; and Omari Kamal Gray, 21, of Sacramento.
