raced a neon

i was crusing around today because it was beautiful outside today..anyway i came to a light and a silver neon with dual exhaust was in the lane next to me one car up..ive seen this dude everywhere and have been wanting to race him..he took off from the light and started down this highway so i followed him and passed him doing about 70 seeing if he'd bite and race me...well he didnt so i still drove and we got caught at a light about 2 miles down the road..he pulls in behind me and i was first in line..the light turned and i took off slow doing about 15 and he pulls in the lane next to me and get even then we both gun it and we're off..first and second we were about even..in third i started pulling on him a little..fourth i pulled on him some more..fifth i pulled a little more..i slowed down at about 103-105 when we caught up with some people..in the end i beat him..his front was at my rear..i asked him what he had done to it and he said exhaust and intake and we both said good race and that was it...BTW it was a 2000+ SE 5spd

good kill, but did you really have to be in 5th at 103 mph?

Not to start arguments, but why every time some says they beat someone, someone has to poke and prod about why did you do this and why not this. He won who cares. Good one by the way.
