Holy shizz is there some dramz on the track right now!!
Max Papis, who just took part in Sunday's Camping World Truck Series race in Bowmanville, Ontario, says that his jaw got straight up dislocated when a fellow racer's girlfriend laid the smackdown on him — literally!
It was allegedly Mike Skeen's girlfriend who slapped him on the left side of the face in a rage over a crash. Here's what Max said about it to ESPN:
"What do you do? You don't hit a lady. I was in disbelief. Complete disbelief. If she would've closed her hand it would have been a bad punch, because she hit me so freaking hard. I went to (Mike Skeen) and said, 'I guess we know who's the man in the family here, because the guy didn't even have the (guts) to talk.”
Daaaaamn! Violence is NEVER the answer to anything, but this girl must have one mean slap! He continued:
"This crazy lady comes shouting at me, and I had no idea, didn't even understand her, she just started shouting. And all the sudden, she took a full hand — and she slapped me so hard. I'm not kidding. My jaw got dislocated and my left ear is still ringing, big time."
So what happened exactly that made this person fly off the handle? In the final corner of the race, Papis and Skeen were fighting it out for second place, and Skeen made an aggressive move, which caused the wreck.
The drivers exchanged hand gestures, and Papis said one of Skeen's crew members grabbed him inside his truck. Then this happened:
"So I say, 'Come to the hauler and we'll talk, because I don't want to beat the s— out of you right here.' I asked him, 'Do you think that's a good move? You hit me and the tire barrier.' And the guy was like, 'Yeah, but I did this before and it stuck.' I said, 'Well, it didn't stick this time.'
"I've never seen this kid before, and I know you're trying to make a name for yourself. But if that's how you're doing it, you're not going to go very far. I'm a hard racer, but what that guy did was very amateur. It was crazy, honestly. It needs to stay between the drivers. I think NASCAR should do something about it. I don't even like that [Skeen's] team member pulled me out of the truck, much less this lady slapping me. Drivers can have arguments with each other — but it shouldn't affect what other people do."
Driving these races are dangerous enough without having to worry about being physically assaulted OFF the track!
Both sides need to grow up and act like adults — we're TOTALLY shocked by how childish they act in the video (above) of the incident! Grown men!
