Authorities say the duo were caught racing Wednesday night in Bowling Green on a road with a speed limit of 45 mph.

An arrest citation says the drivers admitted they had been at a pool hall.

Police say a breath test detected the odor of alcohol. The drivers weren’t cited for driving under the influence.

The driver of a third Corvette didn’t participate in the race.
