Question Bragging Rights

Quick question. Do I get bragging rights for beating a 03 GT Mustang in a 1/4 twice back-to-back? He has BBK intake, STS, and flomaster exhaust w/x-pipe. And not just saying I beat a raged out stang, this is a buddy of mine and his car will spin through 2nd on the street.

Im sure you would, but make sure you have some proof to back it up. A video or time slips would help. What were the times?

Braggin' rights would be warranted, but I'm with the rest as far as the proof.

My Times were a right around 15.4, I know he aint the best driver. The last run the car made he let a buddy of his drive the car that has only driven a fox. The guy laid down a 14 flat. The best my friend could get was a 14.2. I know normally I wouldn't beat him but he didn't screw up when I raced him, so I'm wondering why I won. I think he was starting to have clutch problems, cuz after i ran him and we came back you could smell clutch material.

I dont think you can earn bragging rights by someone elses mess up. Even though, winning is getting to the finish line first regardless of spinning, breaking or running over a banana. Winning a square and fair race would be more reputable.
