Hao Street Races are a series of Strangers and Freaks missions in Grand Theft Auto V for protagonist Franklin Clinton. Each race is presented to the player by Hao and Franklin must win a race in order to proceed to the next one. There are a total of five races in the series. The Hao Street Races are required for 100% Completion.


Shift Work

There is no entry fee for this race. It is two laps long and starts at Forum Drive in Chamberlain Hills against Hao and four other drivers. The reward for winning the race is $200. This race is triggered by meeting Hao for the first time in his Strangers and Freak mission and you must race him and other racers.

Afterwards can be replayed through the Strangers and Freaks replay menu or by meeting the group of racers in Chamberlain Hills. If meeting the racers, the entry fee is $50 and the reward is $200 and Hao won't be taking part in the race. No 100% gold medal achievements can be completed this way, only through replay. If played through replay, the amount of money earned by winning the race won't be added to the player's account as he returns to the normal gameplay.

  • If the Strangers and Freaks mission Shift Work is replayed, Franklin will have a Ruiner parked nearby as a default car ready to be used, though the player still can use any other vehicle for the race.
    • The similar Ruiner was seen in Franklin's trailer.
  • If a player approaches a racing gathering and decides to jack one of the cars, the race will be dismissed and the other people will usually run away scared.
