McLaren 570S Driver Refuses Ford F-150 Street Race, Pickup Still Goes At It, Meets Karma

Out of all the cars in the world to challenge for a drag race, a Ford F-150 driver decided that the McLaren 570S was the best match for his truck.

Leaving aside the fact that drag racing on public roads is a stupid and dangerous thing to do, the truck driver also seemed to ignore that a 570S would smoke even an F-150 Raptor any day of the week. He also appeared to have difficulty choosing a safe place for a drag race since a police car was behind his Ford truck.

As the previous-generation F-150 pulled alongside the 570S on the Lloyd Expressway in Evansville, Indiana, the truck driver started revving the engine, much to the amusement of the man sitting behind the wheel of the British supercar. Out of courtesy, the McLaren driver responded by revving the engine as well but warned the truck guy that a police car was behind them.

Unfortunately for him, the pickup driver proved also poor at picking up signs so when the lights went green he stomped on the gas and left the McLaren in the dust. He also left the police car way behind but the officer quickly made up the lost ground and eventually caught the speeding truck. You can watch the funny episode in the video uploaded on YouTube by the McLaren driver himself, along with his (responsible) take on the matter.

‘Wanna go to Mexico’ is a popular term used by street racers when initiating a street race. I get asked too frequently when driving. Street Racing is illegal! I take my cars to road courses or drag strips to experience speed. Unfortunately, the truck next to me was serious about going to Mexico. Racing is best done on the tracks dedicated for speed. I’ll be happy to play then!

    How does a person in Evansville make enough money to buy a McLaren?

    Doesn’t matter. Good on him for not gunning it. He’s right. Leave racing for the track.

    • I am pretty sure I’ve seen that McLaren DRIVER somewhere else aka other videos. I just can’t put my finger on where/what video I’ve seen him in. (Just looked back through months of youtube history and still can’t find that guy!) Anyway, I am thinking he does not live in Evansville. That being said, there are plenty of folks in Indiana with very nice cars, McLaren included. Getting stuff (like cars) is just another goal one can attain, if lease, rent, buy, etc. Housing is so cheap in Indiana (houses can be found in teens, twenties on up. My parent’s house sold not too long ago in thirties) Leaving much more $$$ for cars, travel, worship.

        That’s a very good point. I’ve commented before that a good reason why you see so many near-luxury and luxury cars in big cities is simply because household income is higher due to higher cost of living. Thing is, cars cost the same regardless of location. A $50K BMW may seem like a crazy amount to pay for a car when a normal house costs $200K in a place like Evansville with lower cost of living, but is a drop in the bucket if living in LA. And no doubt there are many people in Indiana with nice cars, just not nearly as common as in or around major metro areas with higher cost of living index.

    Hahaha! The cop could legitimately write the dude a ticket for being stupid.

  • Prolly cop in truck.

  • Shobin Drogan

    How old was the guy? Probably on the really young side i assume. Also, if someone told this story to me i would never believe it was real!

  • Wandering_Spirit

    New kind of stupid.

  • Dylan Wentworth

    This begs the question… Is it drag racing if you’re not racing anybody?

  • Seats & a steering wheel

    That F150 actually has a good deal of get up and go off the line, looks surprisingly quick for a big truck!
