Powerstroke vs Pontiac Solstice...

So I picked up a buddy from the airport yesterday and as I'm merging onto the highway, this teenage kid blasts around me in a brand new Pontiac Solstice as if he's got something to prove, blocking me in behind a slow merger in the process. :RTFM:

I catch back up to him and realize his age, as well as see that he's got a 30 day tag (so he just got the car) and figure I'll at least give him a black smoke show. My clutch slips pretty bad in overdrive so I didn't think I could give him much of a run. My buddy insists that we race so I figured lets give it a go...

So where running about 65mph (hardly a diesel's strong suit) when I see him look over and downshift like he's ready to go. I leave it in 6th gear and just lay into it. I immediately put him 2 cars back and he's right in the path of the cloud of smoke. We run up to 105mph and he never gains an inch.

I get out of it and go on with my day and about 30 seconds later, after I'm back down to 70mph, I see him coming up from behind trying to get a run at me (at 85-90mph). When he's about 4 cars back I get back in it and by the time he's at my fender we're again running dead even and we are lined up just right where we can laugh at him in his "sports car" while my 7500lb truck with a slipping clutch shows him how it's done.

I wish I could run into him again. My clutch finally de-glazed and no longer slips...I'd eat his lunch!
