Both racers knew the rules before going into that race.
In the comments of the you tube video the black stang guy posted saying he did not let off, he had a malfunction and lost main power to the car.

That's why I won't line up with Fox-bodies that can't be bothered to paint their hoods.

And it seems like the consensus is that he "won" the race not because of ballsey driving, but because of the electrical failure of his opponent. Without that he would have just looked like an idiot.
