This was more of a chase race. I took the lead at first, and slowed down(to about 80mph) because he let off. Well, all of a sudden he creeps up pretty quick, and I floor it. He blew by me! At first I felt pretty helpless, because as soon as I saw him starting to creep up, I downshifted and went hard, yet he still passed me pretty quickly. I didnt let up though, and @ 135 I started reeling him is slowly. We caught up to some traffic, and slowed down...as soon as it opened up again, we were both on it (i was still following) and he couldnt lose me, and he wasnt gaining too much on me. He calls it a day, and changed lanes, and I roll up next to him and look over. We both roll our tinted windows down, and to my suprise this guy was elderly gentleman, probably in his late 60s, early 70s and we both gave each other the thumbs up. Its really cool to what I capable of going up against. I get a little tired of ricers, and scions revving at me. Other than that, nobody else really wants to have a go!
