The four men were in two cars racing each other at “frightening” speeds on the A52 near Nottingham, a court heard.
One of the cars, a Honda, smashed through a central reservation and into the path of an oncoming lorry, killing Gurdip Singh Kareer, 41, and driver Kyle O’Connor, 22, instantly.
Latham Wilbraham and Kyle Bennett, in the other car, were both given six year jail terms at Nottingham Crown Court.
