High Stakes, Low Rider is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson by Mexican-American Varrios Los Aztecas gang leader Cesar "Ces" Vialpando from his house in El Corona, Los Santos, San Andreas.


Carl gets a lowrider car and drops by Cesar's house in El Corona. The two drive to the street race's starting point near the Commerce district and race against four other cars. Carl then traverses through the districts of the western part of Los Santos, before reaching the last checkpoint in Santa Maria Beach first. He then wins the race and earns a monetary reward.


Cesar: Heeyy, CJ, you made it!

CJ: What's the bi'ness?

Kendl: Hey Carl!

CJ: Hey, baby.

Cesar: Nice ride, man. That's no carrucha! You sure you want to risk that baby?

CJ: Yeah, I'm sure. How much they talking about?

Cesar: It's hard cash or your pink slip in the pot. Con Safos, eh. Then you pull up and race. First past the post wins, con chota, sin chota.

CJ: OK, for sure, I'm down.

Cesar: Watch out, CJ, these boys don't like to lose, eh...

CJ: Yeah, well me either.

Cesar: Follow me to the race, dude!


The reward for this mission is $1,000. The race may be later replayed as part of the Los Santos Race Tournaments, which can be accessed in Little Mexico as the "Lowrider Race".


  • Despite the race requiring a lowrider, two of the opponents are driving Majestics, which aren't classified as lowriders. The other Ballas gang car, the Tahoma, is a lowrider, however.
