Sir, I Strongly Protest Your Driving Habits

We're sure you've seen this, but we kind of had to bring it up anyway. If you're like us, you can't be pulled away from the television with a herd of wild ponies during an ARCA stock car race.* One reason is that these guys are always grapplin', and they aren't just your everyday tussles like you see in NASCAR. Take Sunday's Great Lakes Chevy Dealers/Budweiser Glass City 200 at Toledo Speedway, for instance. The highlight of a fight between two drivers came when one of them leaped up and crashed through the windshield of the other car. That's how they roll in Toledo, beey-otch. Here's the quite entertaining video, courtesy WTOL, Toledo. From ARCARacing.com:

Michael Simko and Don St. Denis tangled on lap 112, with Simko's #06 slamming into the wall. He exited the car and as St. Denis' car came back around ran up to it, took a flying leap and took out the windshield, then came the fight.

Jack Landis won the race, but then you knew that.
