Racing in a dump truck

So, earlier today we just finished up a job. I went to the asphalt yard to dump what we had left over and had the guys back at the jobsite loading up while I was gone. So I'm on the freeway cruising about 70-75, and there's a guy in a little chevy regular cab, 6cyl 5-speed. So he's running even with me and keeps looking over at me. So I give him a "go away you idiot, I'm in a 5-ton truck, I'm not going to race you" look. So he stays dead even with me and I can't help but laugh at the guy. I exit and he follows me. He gets up next to me at the light and he's revving the engine. Light turns green and he takes off like we were really racing. So I get to the next light next to him and I'm really laughing at him. Now he's back to revving the engine. Alright I'm in a good mood, I'll play. So I start boosting a little...then a little more....and a little more around 2k RPM. Light changes and surprisingly my heavy azz F550 takes off like a rocket (well, faster than you'd think it would ) I look over expecting to see the guy, and he's nowhere near me. I check the mirror, he's about 2 truck lengths back!! The guy comes up next to me, give me a dirty look and goes speeding around the first turn he comes to. What a jerk. So I have to say, I'm damn proud of my truck.

Good job!

I love seeing the surprised look on gassers faces when a heavy diesel truck out runs them, especially if I'm pulling a trailer.
