Thye were definitely talking trash, but if you notice they weren't really disrespectful other than calling me Conan Obrian or the red headed step child. most of their comments were I'm driving for the wrong team, where as the other drivers they were calling him a toolbag etc... that was the rednecks idea to shake my hand and all and the director was actually in the back slashing his neck saying its wasn't going to be used so don't waste our time, but as you can see it was. all those guys are cool and invited me to their trailer afterwords to BS and talks cars.
I agree I drove into the corners a lot harder than I probably should have, I've don't nothing but autox up until this event so it was a new experience and even though I know what what a race line is and that slow in, fast out is the best way. Putting that to use for the first time when you're chasing a 600hp track car for $10,000 I easily got a little excited and was trying everything possible to chase him down. like I said before they edited a lot of the driving out so I'm sure they used all the corners where I was sideways and slamming off the rumble strip to make it look like I was driving like an ass, because we all know a perfect apex isn't as exciting for TV as a 4 wheel drift.
