LMFAO! I hate to laugh at you Ty, but I did the same thing when I first started racing. My pit man actually came up on the stand and told me that I wasn't driving the car that I thought I was. Mine was off the track, doing donuts in the weeds.

Good times....

There's the problem, women generally don't enjoy being men. At least most don't....

The only one I got is from practice and self-pitting; I couldn't see the truggy on the backside from pitlane and was all turned around. Drivers on the stand yelling down at me; "Left, no now right, crank it, hit the gas, now turn right hard", etc for a few minutes. Good times.

Here is one of my all time favorites... from the drivers stand. It goes something like this........

DRIVER to my right "Ah shit...Its broke"

DRIVER to my left "im coming in for fuel"

about 15-20 seconds later driver to my left. "Where is my car???"

Pitman "it must of fell off pit ramp"

Driver to my left " Were the F@k is my buggy"

driver to my right "UT OHHH!!!"

Driver to the rights pit man...grabbed driver to the lefts buggy and promply took it back to the pits!!!

I dont really hear much on the stand. I usually get poked in the foot with a screwdriver when I need to pit. The guy I pit gets aggrivated with me. Countless times during warm up he will yell down and ask me the engine temp. I hardly ever check it but ask him "Does if feel good" He usually answers yeah and my come back is THEN SHUT UP AND DRIVE IT..

I just remembered one from years past. So for several years I had a pretty devoted pit man. We are at a big race I flame out, I hollar "Rodney Im dead crank me off!!!!!!" He hollars back "ok!!!" Fires me up and gets me going. He than looks up and says" I dont know what's worse, you saying cranking me off, or me saying ok". About that time the whole drivers stand cracks up.

Had a minor crash with another buggy in the back corner. Marshall starts running back to the pits carrying my buggy.
Me - "Put it down" x 3
Marshall (by now half way across the track to the pits so can hear me) - waving the wheel in her hand that has come off.
Me - "Put it down please, I still have 4 wheels - the wheel belongs to someone else".
One rather embarrased marshall...
