While I always love hearing about a PSD getting one up on another make of truck... I'm a little leary of stories like this.
The behavior you are describing is no different (other than the scale) than some of the behavior that is threatening our diesel events around the country.
I don't want to be a buzz kill here, but what you just described could easily land you in jail, or at the very least get your at least 3 driving awards from a law enforcement officer. Unsafe start, or exhibition of power for one, participation in a speed contest for two, and excessive speed for the third. The last two would be very serious offenses.
Guys, I know how easy it is to get into these situations. I also know how much fun they can be. We have to be careful about how we act, however, due to the fact that affects the entire diesel community.
Think about it this way. When you see some guy, wearing a multi-colored leather riding coat, on a crotch rocket, splitting traffic, doing wheelies, etc, do you condemn just him, or do you think "there goes another one of those idiots street bike jerks"??
