Killed by a SCT

I was on my way back to the house this afternoon and due to some big hills on the HWY my truck was rollin a little coal goin up them. I was on the cell phone with a friend when i notcie a white singlecab flatbed ford with a SCT sticker above the F-350 sign come up beside me, he's obvioulsy in the playful mood as he decides to roll a little coal on me there was a long straight away in front of us and the roads were unusually clear so i figured what the heck...I drop the hammer, black smoke everywhere and gain a good 2 lengths on him right away, i was gettin pretty dern excited as i figured i had just won my FIRST race

Low and behold i look in the mirror to see him gainin on me fast, REAL FAST with just a small haze comin out his tip, next thing i know he's in front of me by a length. I let off at 90mph and he was still leaving me behind.

The truck really looked like a 7.3 but with how hard he was pullin on me im thinking it had to be a 6.0 runnin custom tunes

I also threw the SES light, anyone know what a "common" code to throw when runnin the truck that hard is? HPOP not keepin up?

Long story short...i got beat
