That was more than losing your cool. Completely unacceptable. Hopefully the guy in blue is alright.

That is incredibly disappointing. Goes wide, cuts back to the inside and causes a crash, and then sucker punches him, that is some crazy ego. Bet the police and his sponsor is going to love seeing this video. Ditto, hope the guy in blue is ok.

I'm not sure what is more concerning to me -- the one guy punching the other guy over a mistake while playing with toy cars, or the number of racers who kept driving after the fight started. Both are excellent examples of people taking a recreational activity way too seriously.

That dude is the Myles Garrett of rc!! Although there would be more comparison if he used his radio to knock him over the head. Good thing he only used his fists because he punches like sissy. Bro stayed in for 3 swings. He should have fought back in self defense, beat his ass through the driver stand and then press charges.
Just hangin out at the track,, startin fistfights...yee haaw. Loser

All the local tracks will probably hear of this and know him already. Maybe he will get black listed from a few of them and find himself out of the hobby. He is obviously a hack driver anyways so maybe thatís a good thing for him too! Hope the victim is ok and presses charges.

While this is unfortunate and absolutely not okay, I think those who were involved in the situation would rather this wasn't on the internet. Mistakes were made and the guy was probably just having a bad day. That's no excuse, but the less this is shared around on the internet, the better.

as a friend of mine said. " we live in a digital world and if you don't want to be on the internet don't do stupid things" everyone records everything.. good , bad and indifferent. so having a bad day is ok? people need to be called out for their actions. try and make this world a better place.. participation trophy's are not the answer..

Why would it be better? Itís a perfect example of someone taking things far too serious. Bad day is no excuse. He can tell that to the judge
