    Default Trackside Slapdown - Max Papis vs. Billy Johnson UPDATE

    Interesting trackside situation.

    I give Billy a lot of credit for acknowledging fault.

    A Pap-slap is better than a Pap-smear.

    I used to like mad max, total child behavior.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    What is that Jean Gerrard-level sort of grinning skip step that he does after the slap?

    Did NASCAR do anything to him for the slap? They should fine him for at least being lame. Not a NASCAR worthy move at all.

    You're right. I would expect more actual fighting or at least yelling and pushing, not a walk up and slap on the helmet, then run away.

    Yelling and pushing? Come on, now. It's not NASCAR unless the term "garage-clearing brawl" is involved.

    Sad, what man sends his mom to do his dirty work. Totally weak.

    Skeen was a SE30 driver for a few seasons. There is a discussion about the race on the SE30 forums. Someone posted this from Skeen's facebook page.

    "Finally back to the States with a charged phone. Great race overall for us, but a rough end. I'm not sure what the TV showed, but the 14 got into my bumper numerous times to pass me with a couple laps to go. I never gave him a cheap shot in the rear. I made an aggressive move in the final corner to get position and I don't think he saw it coming...hit me in LR corner and put us in the tires. If it was such a rookie move and I completely missed the corner, he should've let me wreck myself and he could've finished just fine (not what would have happened). Instead he tried to turn in even though I had a nose ahead. The drama after the race was started by him. He tried numerous times on the cool down lap to wreck me again or drive me into other parked trucks. When we finally got behind the wall, I got out and talked to him face to face, but there was no reasoning with him. I didn't know about the slap, but that was relatively tame considering he barged our trailer later and tried to pull her down the stairs in front of a NASCAR official and several members of our team. She has bruises to prove it. Those are the facts from my perspective."
