Today I am out on the 3/4 loop (we don’t have a full loop) that runs around little rock, ar. There a couple of dump trunks in front of me running about 80mph on a 6 lane divided hwy. I am coming up on them at about 85mph. I hate driving behind trucks with rocks in them. I get in the right lane; they are in the middle lane. No other traffic and lots of clear hwy.
I notice a new Jeep in the fast lane over taking the semi’s and me. My 330 is my wife’s daily driver so I don't get to drive fast in it that much. So I pick it up to 90mph. The Jeep (Cherokee) is still going to over take me. Still in 6th gear I bump it up another 10mph. The Jeep is still going to over take me. I down shift from 6th to 4th and move on up to 110 mph. I just want to see if the guy is going to keep pushing me. By now we are coming up on the north interchange and back down to a lane going north or south.
I drop down to about 90 there is a car in front of me as I go over the bridge that is about a mile long. We both take the 1st exit and stop at the light. I look over and it is about a 60+ year old man driving the jeep.
Can’t help myself at times. Just have to see what people will do by not flooring it but leading them a little faster at a time as long as there is light traffic and straight roads.
Not much of a kill but this is the second old guy that I have see driving fast in a car/truck that I would be scared to drive 55 in.
