I hear you on this one. At the local races here, there are one or two guys known for punting cars at the end of a straight. They go in too hot and use your car as a brake. I usually change my line and early apex. This give me a bit of room to manuver since I have already slowed. When the punter comes in hot, I can either accelerate or more often, jab the brakes, causing him to overshoot. I have had one guy overshoot so bad that he ran straight into to wall at the end of the straight, then blamed me for messing him up. That was too funny.
