How do you use the verb "race" in a sentence? Does it take a preposition before the person or object? If yes, which preposition?
You won't get the answer faster by being unfriendly...
'My legs may be shorter than yours but I can race you any day.'
'My legs may be shorter than yours but I can race with you any day.'
'My legs may be shorter than yours but I can race against you any day.'

All three, in the right context, are correct.
The most commonly used are #1 and #3; #2 would say that you are racing together, not against each other.
