Two men accused of vehicular manslaughter and reckless driving on motorcycles will stand trial.
The judge made that decision Wednesday, according to Noozhawk.
Suspects Francisco Rodriguez and Jonathan Leon are being held at the Santa Barbara County jail.
Their friend, Raul Ibarra, reportedly crashed into an oncoming car earlier this month along Foothill Road.
Ibarra later died.
Investigators say the three men were racing before the crash.
The arraignment for Rodriguez and Leon is set for next month.
