I just had my first race tonight and it was exciting. I was crusing up and down a local highway looking for some action when I see a BMW behind me. I couldn't tell what kind it was in my rear view and I was praying for a red light because there was no one else next to me. So I the light in front of us turns red and I slow down faster than him so I can see what kind of car it is. It turns out to be a M3. I knew it was going to be tough. Well, we get to the light and the two guys look over and I knew we were going to go. They were about 20ish so I had no doubt. We both start reving and the light turns green. I didn't drop the clutch but I got a really good start. He squeeled his tires a little, not much. I had him through first, and part of second. By 50mph I was a 1/2 car in front. After that he kept pulling, we went to about 85mph and he was a 1/2 car in front. I got the feeling that if we kept going he would keep pulling.
We caught the next light and they roll the passenger window down and tell me I have a nice car. I was surprised that they said that. Not that it isn't a nice car, but I took that as a really classy comment. I told them the same and then the passenger said, he just got his 04 WRX and he really likes them.
All in all it was a cool race with a couple of cool kids. I think races like that are really fun. Would have been better if I won, but hey, M3's are pretty bad. Now I'm ready for the Sh** talker at work with his 540i.
