There are 30 street races divided between 3 locations to win for this achievement. The locations and races unlock as you progress in the game. I did not unlock the final location until I had completed several Horizon events after getting the purple wristband, and didn't unlock the final race for that location until I had completed most of the gold level events.

The street races are point to point races with traffic and no race barriers, but are still not all that challenging. I completed them all with no assists and had no real trouble.

The locations and race levels are:

As far as cars go, any one in the correct class can race but the ones I personally found the best were as follows:

C: 1970 Ford Mustange Boss 429 @ C400
I'm sure there are better choices for this class, but seeing as there is only one of them I didn't bother looking into it.

B: 1983 Audi Sport Quattro @ B500
AWD. You can rev this to the limit at the start and not smoke the tires, giving you a good boost at the start.

A: 2002 Nissan Skyling GT-R V-Spec II @ A600
This is one of my favorite cars because it is so easy to drive. You can absolutely thrash on it at this level and it will fight you to lose traction the entire way. Also a decent choice for the B class races. Another car that you can rev to the limit at the start and not smoke the tires off the line.

S: 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition @ S700
Easily obtained from the Marko Star Showdown, AWD, lots of power, what's not to love?

R3: 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X @ R3-800

R2: 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 @ R2-897
Another great AWD car, and one of the loyalty cars. It is also a very good choice for the R3 races.
