Racing for all intents and purposes is not a contact sport but neither is flag football; that still doesn’t stop people from getting together. As we have seen in past posts about retaliation on the race track, emotion sometimes gets the better of a driver and results in them landing in the Racer’s Court.
Today’s case comes to us from the depths of YouTube. In March 2011 the start of the nights Late Model Main Event at Albany Motor Speedway in Albany, Georgia began with two drivers who seemed to not be getting along; and it didn’t get any better.
After colliding at the drop of the green flag, the C2 of Cale Simons and the 21 of Kelly Walker continue exchanging blows down the front straight-a-way until thing finally blow up with one of the driver’s making a single barrel roll and landing back all four tires. From there things get even worse.
So the question before the court is was this simply a racing incident gone bad? Or is it something far more devious? Let the jury convene and the deliberations begin in this weeks Racer’s Court.
