This is a bogus argument, no matter how good a driver you are, stuff happens.
Just this last weekend I was the cause of just such an incident. Coming around a corner I cut it a little too close and tapped a corner dot (plow disc) and rolled my USGT car, due to speed and angle the car rolled across the lane, tapped the timing loop, and ended up on the main straight as the pack was coming. Needless to say mayhem ensued. I was the driver at fault but others paid the penalty.
No one is perfect and that is why we have marshals. However you should marshal how you would LIKE TO BE marshaled. Common sense goes a long way and an attentive marshal can save your bacon as well (who's had a body tuck fixed during a race/qual?)
