Default Jason Priestley again..

Just saw on the news that Jason Priestley is in practice/qualifying for some Indy car race.

He looped it in practice and spun thru the infield. True to form, when interviewed about the incident he explained that "the crew did not have something right in the setup" and that "he was sure they would get it fixed by qualifying time".

Hmmm.

stupid crewmen...

Shanghied Again : LMAO!!!

I think the guy is a ass since he never admits to something being wrong. If the car was not set properly he should have taken his laps slower untill he got it straitened out, not push the car to fast!!!! WHAT A ASS!!!!!

Not to stick up for him, but didn't I see a race on Speed on June 29th where an experienced Super cat or super V race team took a right turn a few hundred yards from the actual turn at the start? Lucky the next boat was far enough behind to keep from t-boning them. That to me looked like a rookie mistake but I don't see anyone here mention it?
