I was pealing a foam tire back to re-glue it to the rim when the foam slipped and the glue shot up and went into my eye. It glued it shut. petroleum jelly is what the doc used to get it open. Then he scraped the glue out of my eye. Needless to say I use safety glasses even when I'm pitting.

Countless times of poking my self with small screw drivers and such.

I've shocked myself on a powersupply with no case (i had to change fuses).

little did i know, it can mess your day up even when unplugged (the capacitors where still charged).

last time im doing that.

You can't forget soldering iron burns, those are a bitch.

This didnt actually happen to me but I think it's worth mentioning anyway. At our last club race a younger kid fell down a berm while marshalling a car and actually broke his arm. . I talked to him this weekend tho and he seems pretty pumped to get his cast off so he can hold a controller again.

Literally any exacto wound shouldn't require stiches because they're so clean.

Next time you're building a power supply, how about leaving it unplugged while working on it.

Cut my arm with chopper blades. Also while breaking in an engine my neighbor decides to suddenly help and cut two of my fingers with the engine's prop.

How about an 8th scale buggy to the shin. I was standing right next to the driver. It was an on road track(not sure why he had it out, I guess he was just playing with it). SO I'm standing right next to him, nearly shoulder to shoulder. He runs it towards us, pretty fast, and right into my leg. He looks at me and says... "I didn't see you"... Ever seen the movie "Hot Shots"? Remember that guy "Washout"



Yeah, that's how good his vision was...

Just the usual cuts, burns and scrapes. My favorite was tripping over the leg of a drivers stand and scraping up an elbow. The impressive thing is that I had a coke in one hand and a cigarette in the other. Did not spill a drop or damage the cig.

Saw a track owner working on his car when his Xacto roled off the table. He instinctively closed his legs to catch it and drove the blade and half of the handle into his inner thigh. Nasty.

Xacto cuts, soldering burns, electric shocks, busted knuckles, eye injuries (and I wear glasses), etc. - the more common things. Spilled a bottle of Paragon on my lap, instantly bonded my jeans to my legs, not fun. Fell down the stairs once carrying to much gear up from my basement at once

Did not happen to me, but caused by me, broke a marshals ankle once w/ a nitro TC. He went out to get another car and did not look first and stepped out right on the straight where the cars were hitting full speed. He dropped like a bag of rocks and had to get some screws installed.
