It isn’t a night at the street races if there isn’t some drama involved, and few things will start drama quicker than an upset on the street.
While we certainly know full well how quick a diesel pickup can be, there’s still a pretty widely-held believe that, in most cases, a Corvette is going to outrun a truck, especially a huge diesel truck like we see in this clip. However, conventional wisdom doesn’t always hold up, especially given the ease with which modern diesel trucks can be turned up to pump out 4-digit horsepower numbers without any visual indicator of their power levels.
This truck actually gives the Corvette the break, watching him leave before pursuing, and drives around the sportscar almost effortlessly. Afterwards, some smack talk ensues between both sides, with some tense moments caught on camera. Luckily cooler heads seemed to have prevailed and everybody went on their way with no physical altercation taking place.
