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. 

They face charges of unlawful racing, reckless driving and speeding. Mark Derkatz, 30, is from Windsor, Ontario and Alexander Thim, 27, is from West Bloomfield, Mich.

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