Nobody respects a good NASCAR fight more than I do. When you’re pent up in a car for five hours running around in circles with only a headset to scream profanity into, things can get frustrating. That’s why tempers tend to flare on pit road from time to time. Heck, even fathers can become overwhelmed after a race and shout them there fightin’ words into a microphone. One thing none of us ever want to see is hair pulling, but we learned on Saturday that it isn’t out of the question. Check out this video of Jerry Baxter pulling Steve Wallace’s hair, courtesy of From the Marbles:
Those who watched the NAPA 200 in Montreal on Saturday would have witnessed Wallace spinning out Patrick Carpentier. As you just saw, Carpentier’s crew chief Jerry Baxter was none too pleased with the move. That’s what caused him to attempt to start a cat fight. As the Patriots’ Matt Light can tell you, it’s never a good idea to pull hair during a dust-up. You just can’t come out looking like the tough guy in a situation like that.
