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.

werd, I hate seeing old people drive fast in cars that aren't designed to go fast.....this is the reason why so many of those exploders (aka Ford Explorer) rolled over when the firestone tires were having issues

Hey, nice to see some one else one here from LR. So you raced a Jeep across the bridge towards Conway? I'm surprised you didn't find something more interesting heading that way to test your cars legs with. I seem to always find a ricer heading towards conway.
