Haha.

At a race my rookie pitman couldn't shout loud enough so I could hear him. The plan was to pit at 7 min. When the speaker said 8 minutes, I looked down to my pitman and saw him waving to me like crasy to get me in for fuel

He finally runs down from the drivers stand and flips the buggy around and it fires right up. I'm like "DOH !.

During a race, someone on pit lane said loudly: "Look at the t*** on that one"!
(referencing a female figure)

My worst experience ever - about 3 years ago.
My pit man was a very seasoned racer (expert class). I'm running sportsman class - RC Pro State series race.

I'm running in third when my buddy (fellow driver) in second flames out. My pit man calls me in for fuel. I come in and my pit man is helping my buddies pit man get his car started.
I yell at him, and yell at him, he finally sees my car and fills it. He is right at the end of pit lane, drops my car it flames out. He has turned back around is trying to help re-start my buddies car again.
I'm now yelling as loud (a bunch of F-BOMBS) as I can for my pit man to get my car. He is looking around and cant see it. I had to let my car roll down the ramp 2 feet off the end let the others come out of pit lane. A by stander had to hand him my car.

After the race I asked what the hell were you doing? He said "I was helping get his car started, he was in second." I said "you are my pit man and when he flamed I was now in second!"
He said "OH!, you were in third?" I finished 8th...........

Same guy, a year later, made up of it.

My high speed needle o-rings went bad and the needle was backing out during warm up for the A-main. I brought it in and he tuned it just for it to back out agian. He killed the car and took my needle out, scored the threads with the screw driver and put it back in. Fired it up and tuned it, second pull of the trigger it backs out again.
He shuts it down and tells me to stay the f up there. He tears a piece of his t-shirt off, wraps it around the needle, puts it back in and fires it up. Tunes it right as the RD calls the cars to the grid and he picks it up walks out to the front straight and well.....I finish 3rd, started 8th.

When he looks up at me and moves his hand across his throat, se la vi...

Or the infamous "you forgot to put fuel in it again....."

Probably because that's how most of my trace weekends go.
