I’m not trying anything, the car with the highest mph wins in a 1/2 mile race. That’s not my opinion that’s a fact. No one even cares about elapsed time in the 1/2 mile they don’t even time it. Only speed phenom would think he could get to 180 in the 1/2 mile in a stock gt500 and would think a car that goes 144 beats 159.Maybe in your eyes, but when there is a girl doing the ready set go and HE himself says "I'm sorry he won" @16:08 and he couldn't catch him, that translates to he wanted to beat him and it was a race. He even says he tried all he could to close the gap. He couldn't close the gap, he lost as soon as the girls hand went down. I know his voice might feel like nails on a chalkboard, but you can't defend against his own words.
Good Try though on your part.
Half mile is a different game that quarter mile racing.
