There are several curves on Sunset Boulevard referred to as "Dead Man's Curve". 

 

Click on the Wide Field of View button to see them.  

 

A drag racer going West on Sunset would have a long straightaway that hits a 90 degree right turn, which would be the most likely place to skid into oncoming traffic. 

 

A racer savvy enough to survive this curve would likely slow down at the other curves.
