The Strip is one of the single longest relatively uninterrupted roads in Angels, and so a natural hotspot for anyone in need of a convenient raceway. Its few broken sections and jutting rebar spikes have etched themselves into the brains of those who frequent this place, becoming features or road hazards rather than interruptions in their brand of fun.
The area truly became popular when the Phoenix and Vindicator bars, each at one end of the Strip, began to share clientele. The Phoenix was a mid-range biker bar, and the Vindicator one of the only successful Thrash Clubs not associated with a gang. Their synergy was inevitable, and today the Strip is the premier location for anyone itching for speed at any cost. It also doubles as one of the most renowned ThunderCross raceways in the city.
