The annual Wolfpack Hustle Midnight Drag Race took a break from its location in the 2nd Street Tunnel, and set up the 1,000 feet sprint race on the historic 6th St. Bridge. Coincidentally enough, the 1932 bridge is in the midst of a replacement project, slated to tear down the existing bridge and rebuild a new span crossing the LA River, train tracks, 101 freeway and 5 freeway. Plans call for the demolition to start October 2014. Which means this is the 2nd to last possible drag race to take place on the current 6th St. Bridge.
The central steel arch segment over the LA River. This is the portion of the bridge which pivots a bit to the south, giving the current bridge a non-linear, elbow-like trajectory.

Good buddies Susannah Lowber and Melody Brocious, competing in the drag race.
