I apologize for getting so upset & defensive. I should have listened to Jef's advice and "not let it bother me" (which would have been the best thing for me to do). In replying to these "fan" posts, I'm not any better than they are. But I felt & still feel it's unfair for all the accusing & finger pointing (not just at Jef but at any of the drivers) My apologies for lashing out & not thinking it through before reacting.

i started 12th when the green went down i saw an opening and took it just like any one else would. i didnt touch any one. the only contact i had was by the 86 on the back strait going into three. if i was any lower i would be in the infeild. watch 07s incar and the up top video plus the 12 incar the 86 got hit from behined when that shit happened in four. stop your whining i did nothing wrong. i got hit by the same car three weeks in a row so i said somthing to him, not talk shit about him on this site.

Who really cares!!! All i know is that it was not on purpose. The funny part is that not one of the drivers are complaining!! (unless hiding behind a "fake" name) Derek is freinds with all the roadrunners and noone is upset that he talked to its just racing. The 40 & 69 are the ones that got the short end of the stick and they arent on here bitching. I hope every one gets fixed up and back at it sunday. The 69 is great for this class noone wants to race against slow cars what fun would that be?? He makes everyone try harded.

All I have to say is that there is no one a real fault in the accident that happened on Sunday. I Have watch the videos many of times an what see is that the 86 crowded the 11 into turn three(11 could of giving more room the 86 could of giving more room) neither did an when the 86 an 11 made contact the 86 checked up an slowed down causing a chain reaction behind him the 12 got him an then the cars behind did not see it happening cause of the POOR LIGHTING on the track. So lets not put the blame on the 12 the 47 the 77 or anyone in the field its going to happen there are 8 to 10 car out there every week that could win so with tight quarter racing, shit is going to happen. It sucks for the the cars that got wrecked but I am happy that the 69 car looked like it was wrecked pretty good now there might be a shot every week for someone else to win every week an maybe the championship if he can not get one together for a few races.

Why? Its all on video.

Race fan: Please look for us on Sunday, I would like the opportunity to speak to you directly about it. Thank you!
08-17-2010 4:18:17 PM CST
Jen, I thought we were talking about contact in turn 4??? Thats were the pileup was. If you watch the video jeff is right behind derek when he is hit from behind. I know it was not on pupose but you said he never touched him and he did.

Race fan: I'd prefer you post your comments using your name so I know who I am talking to but apparently names are "top secret" on this site. I have watched both the 07's & the 12's videos about 50 times each. And I agree 100% that Jef got into the back of Derek going into turn 4. But the video does NOT show where Jef was between turn 4 and the flag stand. You are assuming he stayed behind the 12...however he didn't. He was on the inside behind the 11x and in front of the 77 (from what I can remember). If anyone has video showing Jef "in full view" making contact with the 12 right at the moment the 86 spun, can you please post it for me to see? Anyone is welcome to correct me if I am wrong (I very well could be) & if I am I apologize. And like I mentioned earlier, anyone is more than welcome to come talk to me about it at the track! For certain...I can assure you that any contact made with the 12 would most definitely NOT have been done purposely!

Watch the 07 in car video on youtube. The 47 did run into the back of the 12. NOT on purpose.
08-17-2010 3:01:26 PM CST
Let me be very specific here. I do not know how the 12 got his push into the 86 (& I feel bad that Derek's caught in the crossfire of opinion & speculation) I am not & will not accuse anyone of being responsible for that wreck! The reason for my reply to "just a hudson fan" was to make it clear that Jef did NOT touch the 12 car (at the time the accident happened). The 47 made contact with the 86 when it spun towards the infield & after they hit, the 86 spun back to the outside. "Just a fan" your comment said "P.S. it was the 47 that slammed the 12 from behind!!!!" a comment of which is not true.
08-17-2010 2:45:11 PM CST
it was anyones race. No blame is needed on anyone. I dont agree with any of you guys.
STOP BLAMING EACH DRIVER

i agree with Jen justa fan 77 was the one that pushed 47 into 12 77 is an aggressive drive and and he has the right and if randy doesn't like it he will black flag him that hole crash was not and can not be pinned on one driver because they all race for "FUN" they all no the risks and dangers on the track so let them do the driving cuz ur " justa fan"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

in response to JEN i did not blame the 47 for the accident all i said was the shot the 12 car got was from the 47 unfortunately it was all because a cetain car runs every race like its an enduro. and yes accidents happen what u seen was a product of cars gettin a run on other cars with no place to go. i know it was not jeffs fault but it was also not dereks fault if the 11 car knew how to race we wouldn't be talking about this. and yes everyone is to blame at some point for something but thats racin for ya.

In response to the post from "just a hudson fan"
Of course it was the 47's fault right? & the time before that it was 12, before that the 69, before that the 77, before that the 40 & before that the 05 (& so on and so forth)...do you see where I'm going with this? Until now just about everyone has been blamed for something every week so I knew sooner or later it would be Jef's turn. He did NOT push the 12 into the 86! The amount of finger pointing is disgusting & unnecessary! "just a hudson fan", "the watcher", "love hudson", "racing bumping" & all you others that post comments with generic names...you people hold no accredibility. If you were confident with your information & not just looking to create friction there'd be no reason to hide your identity. The accident this past weekend was unfortunate; my good friend's car was one of the ones destroyed. I wish it never happened & am thankful no-one was seriously hurt!
I have nothing but respect for ALL roadrunner drivers (whether they've been accused of driving "dirty" or have fallen victim of those who've made poor decisions) It's too bad there's people on this site looking to stir up trouble. If it was mandatory we use our real names, I bet more than half of these comments wouldn't exsist.
If there's anyone who disagrees with what I've written, you are welcome to come over & talk to me about it in person on Sunday.
CONGRATULATIONS to all the 1st time winners this season in all divisions!!!

ok i stand corrected after slowing the video down i see what happend. but i will tell u at full speed it looked like the 11 got a run thats why i said what i did. and yes u r correct about the 11 except even i wouldn't punish the kids like that.
11 car sucks
08-16-2010 6:58:12 PM CST
the 11 car cant drive and it was NOT the 12 cars fault the 86 car was just holding his groove and the 12 car got hit hard causing him to get into the back of the 86.... the 86 went for a ride and no one could avoid it THATS RACING stop whining this stuff happens all the time... and just because you (just a hudson fan) think the 86 came down on the 11 watch the video if the 11 car didnt wedge him self just next to the 86 rear bumper it wuda been fine the 11 car cant drive and should be in the thunder light class
08-16-2010 6:34:31 PM CST

r u kiddin me u can't be that blind to see the12 did get him once but the 86 was fine til the 12 got slammed from behind back into him the second time. if u watch and LISTEN u will here the hit that derrek took so don't blame him. also in his video it shows the 86 runninthe 11 down to the inside!!!!!! derek don't listen to what he has to say the video speaks for it's self. P.S. it was the 47 that slammed the 12 from behind!!!!
08-16-2010 3:06:35 PM CST

08-16-2010 11:16:55 AM CST
hmmm slika looks like your doing a great job because people are starting to not like you lol keep up the good work we will get there soon
08-16-2010 9:39:05 AM CST
well there is a big difference in racing bumping and driving over someone to get a position. for instance. watch the #69 rr if he cant pass you he will push you out of the way rather than waiting to pass inside or out... its a shame he gets the checkered flag sometimes or even deserves the championship... because he is not racing.. he is more an glorified demolition driver.. so some of these drivers have a right to complain when they are trying to race and cant..
