BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP/PATCH) — Two General Motors employees driving new 2020 Corvette Stingrays apparently had a need for speed.

The pair were clocked going about 100 mph (160 kph) on a public road in Bowling Green, news outlets reported citing Kentucky State Police.

The speed limit was 45 mph.

Alexander Thim, 27, of West Bloomfield, Michigan, and Mark Derkatz, 30, of Windsor, Ontario, were pulled over Wednesday night.

Police said Thim reached speeds up to 120 mph, news outlets reported.

The drivers told police they had been at a pool hall earlier in the night, according to the arrest citation.

Police said a breath test detected the odor of alcohol but the drivers weren’t cited for driving under the influence, news outlets reported.

A third driver was also behind the wheel of a Corvette but police said that person didn’t participate in the race.
