Question hazard lights? racing?

I was driving down the 91 freeway around 1am and a group of ricers we driving normal and then got next to me and put their hazard lights on then "tried to take off."
Kind of curious if this is a normal sign they wanted to race me?
And if it was it seems like a stupid idea due to attracting attention...

when one wins a race, they usually put their hazards on after. haven't seen anyone do it when they take off.

I once played a PS2 game where you can race someone by flashing your hazard. Forgot the name of it, but it was based in Japan.

yes I should have but I was to busy thinking about the hundred reasons they are dumb.
1. your car is gay
2. dont flash hazards, cops see lights too
3. nice plastic spoiler
4. Im going cruising 90 and you cant take off(very sad)
5. why am i thinking about this...
