Valencia teens Nicholas Alfarero and Trever Firacusa, both 18, were arrested and booked shortly after midnight Wednesday on charges that they “participated in a speed contest,” according to Sheriff’s Station officials.

A Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputy noted in an arrest report that he witnessed two vehicles stopped in the left-hand turn lane on Magic Mountain Parkway, at the Tourney Road intersection, around 11:13 p.m. Tuesday night.

After their signal turned green, they accelerated at a high rate of speed, and continued to accelerate with the deputy behind them, between Tourney Road and McBean Parkway.

The deputy clocked them going approximately 80 mph in the 50 mph zone on Magic Mountain Parkway, according to his report.

Both vehicles, a 2002 Lexus and a 2003 Subaru, pulled over immediately after the deputy turned on his forward-facing emergency lights.

After an on-scene investigation by the deputy who witnessed the alleged race, both suspects were arrested shortly after midnight Wednesday, cited and released, and then their cars were towed, with a 30-day impound hold.

The charge is a misdemeanor. The case is being turned over to the District Attorney’s Office, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.

Every year, in partnership with the William S. Hart Union High School District, Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station officials and Los Angeles County Fire Department officials coordinate to stage a fake crash with the intent to drive home the importance of safe practices behind the wheel for high school students.

The event, known as “Every 15 Minutes,” is meant to send a somber message to Santa Clarita Valley teens who attend the area’s various public high schools.

“Although those two alleged street racers didn’t end up have a collision, a street race is still an extremely dangerous situation that deputies take very seriously,” said Deputy Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
