Default Great pitman interaction

I'm in second hunting down the lead when I flame out-I see no activity below, so I lean over (bc it's much more effective that way, NOT! ) and start yelling, "I'm dead, I'm dead." Pitman runs out onto the track to grab the baton (my car is being kindly relayed back to the pits) only to bust his a$$ trying to get over the pit wall! He's alright and I'm trying not to die laughing! Get back out to finish third (not too bad). Packing up to get into the car and pull out my month old Razr phone to find out I cracked the hell out of it leaning over the driver's stand; Classic end to a great day of racing!

Things I regularly hear from my pitman? "Stay in your head David, stay in your head!"

My pitman was coming in from marshaling the qualifier just before my qualifier. We had an understanding that I would get my car warmed up and then he would pit me after marshaling.

I get my engine warm and on the track for warmup. I get about 5 minutes of warm up in and my qualifier is just about to start. I bring it in for fuel, and my pitman shuts off my engine and takes my buggy and starter box back to the pits

He thought the qualifier was over I had to chase him down to tell him that the my heat was just starting! By the time I got up and running, I lost a lap. Would have TQ'd if I had that lap back

This was way back in like 07 I want to say at a RC Pro Regional race in Illinois. About 5 mins into the main my pit guy looks up at the drivers stand and says "Hey buddy it's 5 mins, when do you want to come in?" About 30 seconds go by, looks up again, and yells "your coming up on 6 mins, are you coming in?" Finally after about another 30 seconds and I can sense some frustration in his voice he yells up "JEREMY YOUR GONNA RUN OUT OF FUEL, ARE YOU COMING IN OR WHAT!" Finally I tap him on the shoulder and and bust out laughing cause I've been standing next to him since about 1:30 into the race when I got tagged lapping a back marker and broke the rear arm mount. Some other guy had a paint job that was almost a carbon copy of mine with just a different shade of green. This was when there still was a 1/10th scale gas class and I was running an AD2. That made my day even with missing out on bumping up to the A from the wreck.

This has been a great read. Thanks to DJ for starting this up. Many of these stories have either happened to me or I have heard them happen to others.

Here's one for you guys!

A few years ago there was a father son team that raced together and would pit for each other. The father would always wear shorts simalar to swim trunks. I was standing along side pits when I heard "Dad its time to pit!" then a slight pause "GEEZE YOU NEED TO WEAR UNDER WEAR I JUST SAW YOUR BALLS!"

Laughed so hard my eyes were watering.
