Monster truck rally is a race( between) large, grotesque trucks around a dirt track built in the middle of the stadium.

Monster truck rally is a race( among) large, grotesque trucks around a dirt track built in the middle of the stadium.

以上兩句分別使用( between)和( among), 請教何者正確?

請說明理由.

    race是比勝利和失敗,是在兩者之間做選擇,所以雖然參加的卡車是在三輛(含)以上,還是要用介系詞between,而非among,見遠東新世紀英漢辭典第132頁,between解釋4.及5,以及第1116頁,race的解釋。race 當名詞用時,後面接的介系詞有with, against, between, for,但沒有among.
