The coolest memory I have of any teacher was sharing a beer with a recently divorced English professor of mine. Other than that, I have considered most of my educators to be soulless robots. But 18-year old Derek Murrell got a chance to take his shop teacher, Bob Glidden, to the drag strip and race him in a brand new, supercharged 2010 Mustang.



Though we reported on this story awhile ago, there is finally video of the race showing the winner, via Mustangblog.







The video shows Derek and Bob getting amped up to race by Pink’s host Rich Christensen. Who better to host a drag race, right? Their cars were specially tweaked 2010 Mustangs, with Ford Racing Whipple Superchargers, custom C4 transmissions, headers, cam. This is pretty much everything you would need to make 500 horsepower from a 2010 Mustang. Derek and his teacher got the chance to race each other thanks to Dan Millen of Livernois Motorsports, who put the cars together. Derek won the ’10 Unleashed contest, which challenged entrants to provide their idea of the best way to experience a 2010 Mustang.



The race itself was somewhat anti-climatic, as the video surely shows. The first race went to Derek when the blower belt on his teacher’s Mustang slipped off. Derek wound up running a low 11’s race. On the second go-around, he gave his teacher a car-length head start, begrudgingly. This was because whoever won two races would receive a brand new 2010 Mustang as a reward. But it was of no consequence, as Derek handily defeated his teacher a second time. Maybe Bob just didn’t want a Mustang, or maybe he is a good guy. But congratulations to Derek, the proud new owner of a 2010 Mustang.
