    That's funny. But it is the tracks fault and he should sue them. or shoot them. I would have run that bitch over and got my spot.

    Has nothing to do with the track. He wasn't in the proper grid spot, he gets to start from the back.

    Well, in all honesty, I don't know the rules. So what did he do wrong? Did he move without being told to?

    He was gridded in the wrong place. He qualified 7th, but was gridded 6th. His error, so he paid for it.

    well i watched it again. The vid said he 'was' mistakenly grided in the 6th spot. so I don't know if the track officials put him there or he mistakenly put himself there but from the looks of it, he knew he was 7th but was in the #6 spot. 5 cars went and she gestured for him to go but he pointed to the other car because he knew 7TH not 6TH. So by him pointing to the other car, she thought he was saying to let the other cars go first because he wasn't ready. IDK?

    Yeah, there is no rule about that and it is not his fault at all. The track grids you, or at least a good track does. They probably switched the 6 and 7 spots and he was telling her to let the other guy go and then he would go but she obviously doesn't know what she was doing and thought he wanted everyone to go. If the track was worth a shit they would have noticed the grid problem and told her so that she didn't make the mistake she did. He should have gotten out and just walked off. Because even though he passed and got his spot, they will automatically be like "WTF?!" because they didn't know what was going on and they just see him passing on a pace lap.

    :sigh:

    Okay. Yes it is partly the track's responsibility. However, the driver was a retard for doing what he did.
