Maifield is a good guy and not the only one who does this kind of stuff .

He just happened to be caught on camera

As far as what he says about his sponsors equipment , I would personally tell him to keep on running them because he gets paid to do so and sells the product .

There is a lot more I could say but ......................

a race at that caliber.... things happen, and racing for his kind of money.... i would be cursing too!

i know i did at the last race... when i was pitting i had to go an extra lap because someone decided to hack me and i missed pit lane.

i see nothing wrong with him on the drivers stand yelling about... its not like anyone other then the people right next to him can here him... and if your on the pit lane its really hard to here what drivers are saying thats why we have signals for stuff..


the only kid that could probably hear him would be Ty Tessmann

This is where Politically Correct just gets to much. So what if he is cussing. Aww your poor little kids may hear it. If they hear it, get them out of pit lane. I cant stand it when people complain that their kids may hear something, when they will hear far worse in movies and music that most parents allow to them watch and listen to.

If you want your kids to never hear that, throw away your computer, your tv, and home school them. Put a bubble around them, because in the real world, people cuss. we get frustrated, we get mad and we use our mouth to show it.

im not agreeing with ALL the cussing but it happens. things "slip" a couple times. Some people just cuss more than others, to me it's not that big of a deal. I have a nephew I got into RC racing (he's 10) and he hears people cussing at the track, but he knows not to repeat them. That cussing is "bad" .

BTW to those saying these are "toys"..........so are the big ones. they're just toys, bigger more expensive toys, but yet still toys. I come from the 1:1 world and most of those guys will call their cars toys. BUT if you call it a TOY they correct you and call it a "racecar" just like people say RC most will correct and say "HOBBY RC, not your Wallieworld Tyco RC" lol

Just my .02

its a fact that when the boys who are usually fightin for the lead are getting lapped they blame everything on everybody and everything . some throw their radios in disgust , some of the fast guys cuss and call people in pit lane brain dead idiots , call the corner marshalls stupid f'in idiots and call skinny a stupid fat bastard . i think this video may have shed some light on the situation to some of the manufacturers

I live in Europe, so maybe I'm wrong and haven't seen the real live yet...but I really don't think it's normal to use the F#$ck word every sentence, shout a marshall out of his pants and missbehave in this way. There are a few people on the same stand beside him and I bet they are disturbed in their concentration.

And come on...he is a pro, he should act like one. As a sponsored and paid driver you are supposed to be a rolemodel and somebody to whom little kids should look up to. Yelling like this and disrespecting a sponsor who pays you to run their engines, very mature, I'm sure new sponsors will stand in line.

As to the camera being right next to him and that it should be forbidden... be serious.... this whole game and industry is kept in business because of internet and magazines.... publicity sells products....and products need good ambassadors.

But hey, he had a bad day, got lapped, hacked and didn't do well. Shit happens and people get upset. But don't defend him on his bad behavoir, this isn't the way you want your kids to act do you?

i really dont agree with talking to the mashalls like, that you are the one that wrecked on the track. i wouldnt flip a guy car over ,if he was talking like that to me. as for yelling at the pit guys well most, of times is one of your buds so you know.
