I know I've been out of racing for a few years, but I still VERY much know the game of RC Racing... I don't think I've ever heard of a "Marshall" costing a "Racer" a win...Not unless he jumped out and stepped on the Racer's car or truck..lol...I agree 20000% that Marshalls should pay attention, but again guys, there was a lot going on in that B main, and to be honest, there were MANY wrecks...Hey, Bottomline...Marshalls don't drive. ...I had a little concern with one marshall during my heats...He didn't mean anything by it, but he seemed more conserned with his buddy on the drivers stand with me, over that of paying attention to the race. I tangled up a couple times in his section, when he wasn't paying attention...After the 2nd time, I simply calmed myself and told myself NOT to wreck in his section. Hey, it works...I didn't tangle in his section for the rest of the night...lol.. In the younger days I would have been going crazy and pulling out my arm pit hairs, and out of frustraition, the rest of my race or race day was shot.

I'm sorry, but there's no excuse for what happened, they were really short on marshalls for the B, but still. In the end though I'm the one that crashed so there's not too much I can say. I know when I marshall I watch my section of the track not the rest of the race, and I hustle! Hell I came off the Truggy A-Main sweating I was running so much and I know for a fact that no truck sat for more than a second or two in my section when they crashed. Regardless I had a blast for my first time out there, and this track is one of my favorites now Then again I've only race here, Nuclear and Awesome so far. Looking forward to hitting the Tiltyard, XRC and Hobby Hut this season too.

And I wasn't screaming at him to be a dick, just trying to get him to turn around and see my car

That was just a little bit of exaggeration on my part. I know it didn't cost him the race. But it sure can wreck your nerves!!! Marshalling is a tough job. I hustle out there myself to get drivers back on there wheels. But at the same time, I didn't put them on there lid!! So the key is to stay on all fours.

It definately got me off my game big time, and I was pushing so hard to catch up that I just ended up crashing more. If I hadn't crashed I would have been in 1st or 2nd coming out of the back stretch of the track, but I took the risk trying to jump pass the 4 people in front of me
