The first time I encountered them at a WRL race in my car, I was expecting to be nice to a fellow 240 racer and simply bump-draft them down the straight.... I caught them so fast I wound up hitting them hard enough to bend my bumper support and knocked out my turn signals. whoopsies. not gonna try to bump draft those guys!
Come to the Northeast and see if you can do that with us

But, seriously I'd say that's 99% driving prowess and many racers voluntarily dismiss that and point blame at hardware due to ego. "CHEATERS!"

You know Matt93SE is a true Texan when....


...he turns a WRL race into a demolition derby on the straights.
